Travel for Kids has so many fun things to do with kids in Sydney and you're never far from the water, whether it's riding the ferries around Sydney Harbour, playing in Tumbalong Park, viewing the sharks at the Sydney Aquarium, going on a whale watching cruise, wandering through The Rocks (the oldest district in Sydney), riding the waves at Manly Beach, or exploring the world-famous Taronga Zoo, but you'll need a fun place to stay while on holiday. Kid-friendly hotels are a snap on Travel for Kids.

Here's our own Travel for Kids hand-picked list of family friendly hotels in Sydney, all styles and price ranges (all with air conditioning), in neighborhoods near to fun things to do with kids.
Hotels are selected for their amenities for families, such as swimming pools, accommodations with fully-equipped kitchens and guest laundry facilities, restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, convenience stores close by, mini-fridges in rooms, babysitting services, proximity to playgrounds, and more. Hotel policies can change, however, so be sure to check with the hotel at the time you make your reservation to be sure your desired family amenities are still available.
Tip: Most hotels in Sydney charge for Wi-Fi (it's usually not free). If you need free Wi-Fi, your best bet is McDonald's.
