  • With so many great family-friendly things to do in Canberra, you'll be laughing with the little ones during your stay in the city. Designed to give the adults a break while the kids let off steam, The Fun Factory is a huge indoor adventure land. Featuring a giant inflated area for bouncing around on, a ball pool, tunnels, giant slippery slides, climbing bars, and activity areas, the Fun Factory has separate areas for under-threes and for three to ten-year-olds. Best of all, parents can relax over a cup of coffee while the children play.

    Take the kids to Lake Burley Griffin. This is the brainchild of Walter Burley Griffin, the architect of Canberra City. Scrivener Dam, at the west end of the lake, slows the Molonglo River and creates the many basins of the lakes. Many diverse habitats and ecosystems, natural and man made, surround this body of water, which is the focus of such leisure sports as fishing, swimming, cycling, walking, jogging and rowing. There are picnic areas at Yarramundi Reach, Weston and Commonwealth Park as well as Black Mountain Peninsula.

    Opened in 1979, Cockington Green will delight everyone with its miniature approach to "ye olden days." This tiny village is built at one-twelfth of the original size, and you stand over the buildings like a giant. The trees and gardens are all real but trimmed to size. There is a soccer and cricket field where you can see a game in action, and the turf maze is the only one of its kind in Australia. Kids have so much energy, it is sometimes hard to know what to do with them. Canberra definitely has the answer with these family-friendly activities.
