Take the kids to the zoo this winter.....

Who says it's too cold to go out? Rug the kids up with merino wool, jackets and scarves and head out for the day.

In Canberra, my little girl and I go the National Zoo and Aquarium on our days off. It's nearby and because we have an annual pass we can come and go as we please. A recent visit to Sydney demanded a visit to Taronga. It brought back many childhood memories.

The National Zoo & Aquarium sponsored our Babies in Beanies 2010 with family passes for the winner's family and runner's up.

If you care to be a little more adventurous than just a simply trip to the zoo, take a trip to the snow supporting the Snow Leopard Foundation, an endangered species. This August, 22-23, for $252 you get coach travel, accomodation & ski lift tickets. To find out more contact the National Zoo & Aquarium .

Fireside Festival

Murrumbateman is a vibrant rural village 30 minutes from Canberra and 2.5 hours South of Sydney. The village is made up of a diverse and active community and is home to a large number of small business owners. Historically based on wool and beef cattle it has recently emerged as a centre for wineries, regional cafes and restaurants and award winning B&Bs.

Every winter the Fireside Festival is held by Canberra and surrounding small businesses to celebrate winter in the region.

Two of our sponsors of Babies in Beanies have great events on offer during the Fireside Festival. If you can't make these, they are worth a visit with or without the kids!

Poacher's Pantry smoke their own meats, Wily Trout wines and offer a resturant on their beautiful property, just 10 minutes from Murrumbateman, in Hall.

This year for the Fireside Festival they are offering
