I have a similar thread going in the Melbourne forum but as I am travelling to different areas I thought it better to ask individually.
I will be coming to Australia, my first visit, in January for 4 weeks with my wife and son (at the time he will be 7 months old). I will be spending 4-5 days in sydney during this trip and was wanting some general info about the city.
What advice can you offer regarding tours to the Barrier Reef? Is it ok to take babies on the boat.
Also with having a young child with us we wont be looking too much into the nightlife but I would like some info regarding child friendly pubs etc where we could grab a reasonably priced beer and some food at the end of a days sight seeing.
Also I have seen that there are public barbecues dotted all around, how do these work? I want to spend as much time outdoors as possible even when eating so if i have the chance to stick a couple of pieces of meat on the BBQ instead of going to a cafe/restaurant i'll be doing it.
Thanks in advance for any advice given.
