Today we headed to the Sydney Opera House to celebrate Summer with Dr Seuss's The Cat in the Hat and experience the family friendly precinct along the Broadwalk. As we headed towards the Opera House we could feel the vibe before we even walked into the special Summer at the House area.
Before or after the performance families can hang outside in the sunshine along the western broadwalk and grab a drink, Mexican from El Loco (with kid size tacos) or delicious healthy ice blocks. We loved this area and there is enough space to wander around and take in the amazing view. There are shaded table areas but make sure you take hats for kids if you miss out and have to take a table in the sun.
The Creative Play areas is a successful concept used to keep young children occupied before they head into the theatre. Within the foyers kids have a choice of story telling, puppet making and the very popular Seussophone to keep them busy.
Our tip: Make sure you give yourself time before and after the show to experience everything on offer!
