The best family fun Christmas deals

School holidays have begun and Christmas is just around the corner. For many these holidays mark a well-deserved break after a tough year, but parents know it’s not really a break when you have the kids full time.

It’s not like we’re not happy, after all, the best gift is the chance to spend quality time with the kids. However, it can be difficult and expensive to plan a few weeks’ worth of activities to keep them entertained, especially those with allergy restrictions.

Here are 5 hayfever / allergy-free Christmas time deals around Australia:

  1. Have a wet and wild fun with the fam! (Innuendo of Wet & Wild)

Go to Sydney’s “Wet n’ Wild” water park. This may not be your idea of a break, but the kids will enjoy making a splash.  Right now there’s a “Red hot Summer sale” for $79.00 per person. This will give you unlimited entry until the 31st of January. Just remember to go earlier or later in the day before the lines become too long.

  1. Get competitive at AMF

Compete against family members in a game or two. “AMF Bowling” has a “Holiday deal” for $19.90 per person. It includes 2 games of laser tag or bowling and shoe hire. AMF Bowling branches are located around Australia.

  1. Play at WizBang

Adelaide’s “WizBang” is a family fun centre that was made to keep the kids entertained. Spend a day there with the “Unlimited Special” for $19.00. This will give you access to black light mini golf, laser tag, kids disco and the play gym.

  1. Go on an Aussie safari!

Queensland’s Australia Zoo is a truly unique experience. Bring your kids to see Australia’s animals and reptiles. Right now there is a 1-day or 2-day child, adult and pensioner ticket special from $31.50. This is a “Groupon” only deal.
