This innovative resource currently contains over 2000 reviews of activities, attractions, tours, restaurants, beaches, playgrounds and events in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT. Other states will follow shortly.
Author and creator Sarah Pye, who was named Sunshine Coast Micro/Small Business Woman of the Year in 2010, was lucky to have travelled with her own parents and said she learnt an enormous amount outside the classroom.
“Kids grow up so quickly and go through so many different stages along the way,” Sarah said.
“I want to encourage parents to experience new things with their children, even close to home, while the kids still want to.
“The reviews in the Kids Welcome web directory make the job of choosing age-appropriate experiences much easier.”
Each review on the website is rated as suitable in three different age-groups: preschool, primary and teen. Regions are easily searched, and there’s a wealth of travel advice too.
Mum Simone Elling has long been a fan of Kids Welcome. Up until now, she has used Sarah’s printed guidebook Kids Welcome to Queensland to plan her family’s holidays and weekends.
“I am so excited the web directory is now live,” she said.
“It even lets me become a Kids Welcome reviewer and upload images and videos!”
