Reviews of the Newy with Kids Winter Family Fun eBook
Downloaded mine today, love the detail & maps, like suggested timing for activities/locations, where to lunch & if I take my own where I’ll find facilities. 100% happy – Ruth F.
Just downloaded my copy. It looks fantastic and really versatile for whatever kind of day we all feel like having. Can’t wait to get the kids out and about – lots of things I hadn’t thought of even as a lifetime local. Thanks heaps NwK. We’ll be looking forward to the Spring and Summer versions later in the year too! – Simmone P.
Granddaughter and I enjoyed our first bush walk today. We filled our backpacks with snacks and practiced bush bashing through 2 clumps of grass! The most exciting thing though was finding a puddle and mud! Occupied for 15 minutes. Thanks Newy with Kids for suggesting a walk at Kilaben Bay – Julie S.
Just downloaded mine! I love it – it’s well thought out and so many locations we have yet to explore! – Cherry C.
What ages are these itineraries suitable for?
We’ve tried to make the itineraries suitable for families with kids of all ages. Obviously, every family is different so feel free to change up the itinerary to suit your circumstances and interests. With younger kids, you might even want to divide up a day itinerary into two separate day trips.
What kinds of activities are included in the ebook?
For this eBook, we’ve chosen a variety of free and low-cost activities that don’t cost too much for your family to participate in. E.g. wildlife exhibits at Blackbutt, exploring caves at Caves Beach and walking up to the top of Tomaree.
How do I use this download?
Download the file and save the PDF to your files either on your phone, tablet or computer. When you’re on your family day out, access the itinerary on your phone and open one of the 15 Google Maps we’ve created just for readers of this e-book. You can open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile app available for iPhone, iPad and Android or store it on your Notes.
Can I print the eBook?
Yes. We’ve created the eBook in A4 PDF format so it’s easy to print. The PDF is 34 pages so we suggest double-sided printing.
Can I share this with my friends and family?
Of course. And use it to organise excursions with friends and family.
Are all the attractions listed in the eBook open now after lockdown?
Yes, as of today all the attractions are open. However, due to the changing nature of COVID-19 restrictions, things are subject to change. Before you set out on a family excursion, please double-check to confirm it is open and if you need to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
