Why not take the kids for a day hike, the secret is to plan… if they get tired you can always entice them with a swim or maybe lunch at Burleigh Village or West Burleigh. The best thing is that most of these walks providing you plan ahead are on or near bus routes. Always have an exit plan for those who don’t feel the same enthusiasm, food or a drink stop is the best approach.
