Sydney is full of places to discover with kids on the cheap. Central Park is a short stroll from Central Station in Sydney. Here you can visit the White Rabbit Art Gallery--home to one of the world's largest collections of contemporary Chinese Art.

Make sure to visit the tea house on ground floor and indulge in delicious steamed dumplings (available from 11:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m and $10 for a plate of 12), devonshire scones, a selection plate of nuts and dried fruits ($4.50), sample fine Chinese tea (from $4 a pot), sip on Chinese beer or a glass of wine. A great little gift shop with a selection books, postcards and paraphernalia is worth a look as well.
Once you leave the gallery walk through Central Parks' unique residential development where the world's largest vertical garden wreathes the vertical village. While walking through the park head towards Central Park Shopping Centre. Here you can continue with your dumplings affair or grab a coffee while the kids get creative for free.
Before you leave Central Park Shopping Centre you have to stop by Daiso, the Japanese store where everything is $2.80 all day, everyday! You name it, they will have it.
Head back to Central Station via Chinatown and line up for freshly made hot cream puffs. No trip home on the trains is the same without them. Purchase one for 35c or twenty for $5.00.
