It gets hot in Prospect: often three or four degrees hotter than the coastal areas of Sydney. That makes the newly rebadged Raging Waters Sydney (formerly Wet ‘N’ Wild), with its giant, Curaçao blue, sand-lined wave pool and curving canopy of rainbow waterslides a pretty attractive summer family adventure. The kids can freak out trying the new 206-metre slide made up of tunnels, open spirals and zippy drops that’ll have them flying up to 25km per hour.
Have you got an army of sweaty bubs and youth galavanting around your living room? Would you like the cries of "I'm hot" and "I'm bored" to cease as soon as possible? Well, we've scoured the family-friendly summer activity diary and found a few fabulous cool-down events and venues offering a wealth of kid-focused summer fun. Need more ideas to fill school break?
