Budget family sunday outing
For less than $20 we had a great day out in the city today.
We purchased 2 Family Funday rail passes from City Rail (total $5) and caught the train in to Circular Quay. We spent a little while wandering around looking at the sights and checking out the P&O Pacific Princess which was docked on the pier.
Next we caught a ferry over to Darling Harbour (for free, as this was included in the cost of the rail ticket). We ate McDonalds for lunch (total $13.90). I had thought about taking a packed lunch but we have money put aside for this sort of thing and I felt I deserved a break! Josh doesn't know what Macdonalds is yet and we would like to keep it that way. We only allow him the chips from there and nothing else. We only eat there about a couple of times a year. Afterwards we took Josh to play fully clothed in the fountains so he could cool down. He had a ball and didn't want to leave. We changed his clothes and then headed back to Town Hall to catch the train home.
We will be doing this again in few weeks but choosing a different destination. It is much cheaper to buy the family pass than to drive the car to wherever we want to go. If you haven't heard of this offer before, here is the link to the City Rail website which has all the details.
