Australia’s oldest museum, which we call ‘the dinosaur museum’ because there’s an enormous skeleton hanging from the ceiling, has so much to see and do. There’s a soft, squishy area for tiny ones to dress up and play as well as sections for older kids: from rooms full of dead bugs and taxidermy to an interactive ‘river’ where a crocodile or shark pops up. On a rainy day, arrive right when the museum opens at 9:30 am to make sure you get in, especially if you want to see a special exhibition. The Domain Car Park nearby has a $19 early-bird day rate if you’re in before 9:30 am and leave between 3:30 and 7 pm.
A variety of weird, wonderful and historical items! Wprth a look! This is in the cbd so it is not to far from other CBD attractions nearby!

“ the most important public gallery in Sydney and one of the largest in Australia.”
“a great easy walk that takes in the sites of Sydney harbour, the Sydney opera house, and woolloomollo wharf and provide easy access to the Art Gallery of NSW, State Library and Circular quay. A beautiful location for those off you who love to jog against a breathtaking backdrop”
“This iconic building has global significance as well as local. Admire it from a distance, get up close to examine the intricate tiling, or step inside and dine at Bennelong, one of Sydney’s best eating experiences, under a soaring, airy ceiling with views of the harbour. One of the world’s most significant buildings. You’ll get an appreciation for the story behind the architecture by taking the fantastic backstage tour—something we should all do. There’s a complex, compelling history here, that highlights the difficulty experienced when radical thinking and true innovation seek to create something remarkable.”
“Right bang in Circular Quay, the MCA has always something interesting going on as well as a terrace bar view great views. ”
