After a long day, an evening at the cinema can introduce some much needed relaxation and fun for you and the family.
With teenagers in tow, finding a day out or activity that suits everyone can be challenging. There are a variety of indoor and outdoor cheap activities that are good for older children, including sports and cultural activities.
Activities such as sailing, rock climbing and go karting offer a challenge and will push them to their limits. If you need a group activity, paintballing is a good high octane option too – not to mention character building.

Centres across the city offer classes and places where toddlers can learn, play and encounter new experiences. Tire out your toddler with an activity-filled day at the nearest playcentre – especially on a rainy day.

Living in a coastal city, swimming is important to every child and the best time to learn is when they are young. The Swim School offers lessons for infants and toddlers so they can start to pick up these essential skills early on. Stay and watch or get in the pool with them to help with their development.
