Butterflies Up Close

Feel the smell of flowers in the air and sunshine on your face? Spring has arrived in Sydney! These school holidays take some time out with the whole family and enjoy relaxing and invigorating activities after what has no doubt been a long and busy winter.

Holiday Inn Potts Point is your perfect base to explore Sydney. Wander down picturesque Victoria Street to Woolloomooloo and over to the Botanic Gardens, from there wind your way to the harbour. Next, choose your own adventure, from here you can stroll into the city or follow the water around to Darling Harbour, search out the perfect gelato, grass hill for rolling down or family selfie spot.

To keep everyone entertained, here are some fun activities we are looking forward to checking out:
