Best family attractions in NSW
NSW has many attractions and destinations designed just for kids. A few of the best include the living maze at Amaze n Place at Alstonville, and the animal fun park, mini golf and new tree house playground at Macadamia Castle near Ballina.
At Magic Mountain in Merimbula the kids can careen down giant waterslides and the downhill toboggan, and take a Triassic Park tour, roller coaster ride or magic carpet slide. Timbertown, near Port Macquarie, is slightly more relaxing with horse rides and steam trains at this re-creation pioneer village.
Two of the state's best adventure playgrounds are in Orange and Blayney in the central west. Orange has tunnels and a climbing wall amongst the usual attractions, while Blayney has a flying fox, giant chess game and âmouse house'.
