Fun (and Free) Things to do with Kids in the Northern Rivers

January 10, 2024

Oh hey there locals… this one is for you! We are based in the Northern Rivers area in NSW and it’s a little slice of heaven. We’re right in the middle of school holidays, post Christmas hype come down and maybe the boredom is starting to set in. If you’re looking for some fun ideas to keep those kiddos entertained, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s some ideas that won’t cost you a cent and will spare you your sanity!

Play in the Hastings Point Rock Pools

When the tide is low (you can check the tide patterns online) there are beautiful rock pools at Hasting Point. Make sure to bring a bucket or little nets to catch fish and crabs! It’s a child’s wonderland, and we have no doubt they will get lost in exploring the rock pools. Soak in that vitamin D and if you’re lucky, you’ll spot some dolphins playing in the waves. Stop in at the General Store for fish and chips after!

Walk to the Top of the Headland at Cabarita

Cabarita Beach was named one of the most beautiful beaches in 2019- it really is so stunning and pristine. There is a wooden headland walk where you walk right to the top. The views at the top are breathtaking! Bring a picnic and sit on the side of the headland and watch the sunset. 10/10 recommend!

Hike Minyon Falls

If you’re a nature loving family, you’ll love hiking at Minyon Falls. It’s not intense for little ones and it’s a beautiful spot to adventure. The falls are sure to wow your cuties! Keep your eye out for Aussie wildlife!

Visit National Parks' websitefor more information on Minyon Falls and planning out your day trip.

Visit The Farm at Byron Bay

The Farm at Byron Bay is such a fun place for a school holiday adventure. There are fields to wander in, macadamias to collect and crack, farm animals to look at, and even a wooden playground to conqueror! We can’t promise that you won’t be suckered into buying the delicious ice-cream and pastries that they have on offer there.

Float Down Cudgen Creek

This is a family fave of ours! When the tide is coming in, you can do a float from the mouth of the creek to the boat ramp and it is so much fun! The current just takes you and you can float all the way down and do it again and again! Perfect for little ones with floaties and body boards for older ones!

Do the magical Fairy Trail at Brunswick 

Brunswick is a cute little coastal town not far from Byron Bay. It has beautiful beaches and walks and our favourite thing to do in Bruns is the Fairy Trail! Grab a map at the visitor centre and go on a fairy hunt… there’s little fairy houses and hidden messages all along the way! Have a quick dip in the creek after!

Bike along the Northern Rivers Rail Trail

Grab your bikes and explore the rail trail. This a great one for older kids but perfect if you have a baby seat on your bike for little ones. There’s lots to see as you ride along the trail! Bonus: it’s one that will definitely burn that school holiday energy!

Here’s a few other ideas that cost a little but are so fun!

Glow Worms at Mt Tambourine

Whilst daytime is the best for experiencing the beautiful natural waterfall located inside the glow worm cave, for the best chance at spotting some glow worms, and a unique adventure that your kids will love, we highly recommend doing this one at night! Find out more here.

3 Things the Postpartum Period Isn’t…
3 Things the Postpartum Period Isn’t…

January 30, 2024 1 Comment

Postpartum is a wild time… you’re in a baby bubble, flooded with so much oxytocin yet you’ve never been so exhausted. You are getting to know this tiny human that you brought into the world but you’re still discovering who you are as a mother. You have a deep sense of love that came so naturally but you also feel like maybe you don’t really know what you’re doing. So many beautiful paradoxes make up that post birth period.

Ah, bath time with your little bundle of joy – it's a splashy adventure filled with giggles, bubbles, and a whole lot of cuteness! Orrrr depending on the day, it could be a screaming, get it over as quick as possible nightmare! You just never know with babies haha! We do know this for certain, that our bath time essentials make whatever kind of bath time it is easier.
