If your kids are anything like ours, then they’re currently more enthused than ever to re-acquaint themselves with their friends and seek out new adventures. Last year’s Halloween was very low-key so why not make this one something for the kids to celebrate by heading somewhere extra special?
Check out what’s on within the Sutherland Shire or take advantage of the fact that we are finally allowed out of our LGA and explore some of the fabulous events a little further afield.
