If you haven't played a game of dodgeball whilst bouncing on a trampoline, you basically haven't lived. Grab a bunch of mates and head to SkyZone Alexandria for the most epic game you'll ever play. Plus while you're there, learn how to backflip, slam dunk a basketball and just pretty much have the best time ever.


2. Get A Little Crazy At Monkey Mania

This one is for the little legends these school holidays. If you want hours of fun (and an amazing nap to follow) take the kiddies to Monkey Mania in the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park. There's fun slides, things to climb a giant maze and those amazing soft play oversized blocks! Plus, it's totally cool for parents to go on the slides too, to accompany the little ones of course.


3. Tear It Up At Monster Skatepark

Grab something with wheels and head to Monster Skatepark these school holidays! If you're a newcomer, you can stick to the smaller scale ramps, but if you've got guts there's some bigger slopeds for you to try out! There's also the opportunity to sign up to their academy, to learn how to master those moves - for all ability levels! Find the skatepark at Sydney Olympic Park.


4. Release Your Inner Artist At The Messy Spot

Everyone loves a good arts and crafts day, especially when getting messy is totally encouraged! Grab the whole family and take a trip to The Messy Spot in Maroubra, you get to paint up some nifty little things and if you're super lucky, join in on one of their glow parties!


5. Spend A Night In Agrabah 

If you haven't seen it yet, grab the entire family and head to the Capitol Theatre to see the Disney classic Aladdin come to life on stage. This isn't just one for the kids, with the music, the dancing and the incredible theatre magic, Aladdin is sure to whisk you away to a whole new world. You can grab tickets from the Capitol Website.


6. Check Out The Zoo From Above

If you're heading to Taronga Zoo these school holidays, make sure you book in for the Wild Ropes Course. Experience the zoo from the tree tops and have an amazing time while you're doing it! 2DayFM's own Rove and Sam also gave it a go and will happily confirm the fun. Book online here.


7. Brave The Quarantine Station Ghost Tour

If you're feeling particularly adventurous these school holidays, head out to Manly and take on the Quarantine Station Ghost Tour. Hailed as one of the most haunted sites in Australia, you can choose from multiple experiences, or if you're really brave you can choose to sleep over. Check out everything they have to offer on their website. Do you dare?


8. Spend A Day At Luna Park

It's one of Sydney's favourite tourist attractions that you can't get sick of, Luna Park. We recommend starting your day later on in the afternoon and experiencing the park and Sydney Harbour at the most magical time of day: sunset! It's not only a bit of fun for the family, but there's some incredible photo opportunities too.
