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 .
