The funny thing about kids is that they don't seem to feel the cold. Every day my girls trot off to school in little more than a t-shirt and skirt, arms and legs bare, absolutely refusing to wear a jumper despite me – clad in thermals and scarf – begging them to do so.
So, if your kids are like mine, this next line will really appeal to you: take them to Outback Splash for $10 entry this winter!
It's important to note that there will be no splashing, as the water attractions are closed over winter, but included in your $10 entry there is still plenty to do over the July school holidays including:
Five mazes of varying challenge levels including the massive 2500m2 timber maze which was the largest maze in Australia when it opened in 1981
9 holes of mini golf
Australian native animals
And especially for the holidays: a free daily bee-keeping show (1pm) called 'Bee Happy' where you will learn about life in the hive as well as enjoy some honey tasting.
