School holiday fun down South

Week one of the school holls are done and dusted with this evening and we have already jammed some fun stuff into the kids break.
We started early with a break away from home visiting a much loved friend down South.
Here are some pictures of our adventure.

Let me tell you it was freezing in Kangaroo Valley the day we went over Berry Mountain for a visit.  2 Hours south of Sydney this is a hidden treasure - more information about accommodation and things to do can be found here - Tourism Information
 Although they had jumpers and beanies on - 2 of these kiddies had bare legs - madness but apparently they were not cold!
 A stop in at the Pioneer Museum  had the kids learning stuff . The museum had talking history spots and visual displays from the pioneer days of the area. The kids got to do and activity sheet with the incentive of a reward at the end.

We visited a Dairy, Forge, School House, Settlers cottage, a Museum and war remembrance room.
 They even helped each other with the quiz!
 A highlight of the visit was this big swing bridge - it was the entrance to the bush walks. The kids (including my big husband one) had a ball bouncing their way over this, my friend was not so keen.

Ahh the school room - those desks were a bit of a tight squeeze.

 The sun dial had the correct time - I was not surprised but the kids sure were and they read it easier than they do their clocks - might need to work on that!

At the end of the tour and quiz the kids got to 'bundy' off and received postcards and information booklets about their visit.
