School holiday activities for kids on the Central Coast

I know this wet weather has been getting people down, especially those with small people at home, slowly driving their parents up the wall. We’ve been away camping this past week and noticed that the weather never impacted the activities our kids wanted to do. They wanted to go surfing in the rain? Sure let’s do it. Bike riding through muddy puddles? Sounds like messy fun. Kids are resilient, they’re happy to get outside and be active, regardless of the weather. With that in mind, here’s some outdoor activities that my kids love to do, rain, hail or shine.

Winnie Bay Bushwalk

Winnie Bay Copacabana Avoca

My kids love a wander down the stairs from Copa to Winnie Bay. Mal the bird man was stoked to spot a Regent Bowerbird during one of our walks. Josie prefers exploring the rockplatforms and discovering shells.

Surfing at Umina

Umina is the perfect learn to surf spot on the Central Coast. Long, gentle waves are just right for beginners. The shallow break means that little ones that aren’t that confident can safely wade out to be part of the fun.

Little Beach

The kids love this bushwalk. The track is only a 10 min stroll through rainforest. If the tide is right they’ll have a swim in the rockpools once we get there. Otherwise the love just walking around the rock platforms.

Saratoga Waterfront

Tree climbing, walking along the rock wall and looking for jellyfish in the shallows, my two love a wander along the Saratoga waterfront.

So that’s a few of our favorite things to do during the school holidays. Rug up, grab your rain coat and gum boots and get amongst it. Being outdoors is good for small people (and grown ups too!).
