30 adventure activities in and around Australian cities

There are awesome family adventures to be had in and around Australia’s capital cities, writes MEGAN HOLBECK. Here’s 30 family-friendly adventures to get you started.

One of the silver linings of 2020’s dark corona cloud is the new-found appreciation for what we have in our own backyards. Whether you’ve got toddlers or teenagers, are keen on gentle strolls or adrenaline, the outdoors has been both a sanity saver and boredom buster. Family adventures and outdoor activities have helped keep us all sane.

Tracks and trails have been heaving, with water and waves way busier than usual. But the initial burst of enthusiasm has waned as “I can’t believe we’ve never done this before!” morphs into, “Not this walk again…”

Which is where this ‘Capitals of Cool’ article comes in, detailing destinations for adventures wild and tame, long and short, and from do-it-yourself to guided experiences. The added benefit? Soon we’ll be travelling further afield, and you’ve got a ready-made list of awesome family experiences around the country.
