Mother’s Day isn’t far away.  It’s a day we usually spend enjoying being a family by doing something fun together. This year will be a little different because Hubby has a work commitment so my Mother’s Day will be postponed.

I like nothing more than sharing information that helps our readers get out and about and the words ‘FREE ENTRY’ will hopefully get your attention. Here’s a list of some fabulous freebies for Mums at some great accessible attractions.


Featherdale Wildlife Park

We had the best day at Featherdale last year. You can read about our visit and see photos of the park here.

Featherdale is offering Mums free entry this Sunday 8 May. Pop over to their Facebook page , ‘like’ the page and read all the details about the offer.

If you visit, make sure you get a pic with Mum and one of the koalas. We’d love to see it.


Sydney Tower Eye

There is no better place to enjoy unobstructed views of Sydney. We’ve visited Sydney Tower Eye several times and I’ve written about our experience and the access here.

Mums get free entry this Sunday.  Read more about the deal and download the coupon here.


Madame Tussauds has a mix of celebrities and personalities which cover a good time period so the saying, “There’s something for everyone” really does apply here. There are sports stars, movie stars, TV personalities and medical heroes on display.  Although our kids are not familiar with Alfred Hitchcock or Audrey Hepburn, they are certainly keen to see the likes of Katy Perry and Pink.

The aquarium is a wonderful place for an outing with Mum. There are so many beautiful sea creatures to see up close and it’s accessible.

We had a wonderful visit to Sea Life in Melbourne a couple of years ago.  The aquarium has great wheelchair access with lift access between the levels.  The kids loved getting up close and personal with the sea life and we thought the glass floor over the croc was awesome.  I can only imagine what he was thinking while looking up at BJ’s legs.  Mind you they are pretty skinny, not much meat for a croc.

Taronga Zoo is a favourite for our family and offers a full day’s entertainment. This Mother’s Day they are offering Mums free entry to the zoo when accompanied by a full paying adult or child. This information is hot off the press so please check their website for full conditions and information (should be available Thursday).

We just visited Cockington Green Gardens again last weekend. The miniature displays and beautifully manicured gardens appeal to all ages. If you visit make sure you take BJ’s tip and have some home-made scones. They are delish!

Mum’s can visit Cockington Green Gardens on Mother’s Day and receive free entry. They have some other special treats in store for Mums so make sure you visit the website to read all about it.


A day out is lovely, but a day out where we, as Mums, don’t have to pack lunches and organise the outing is even better. Organise the food, the entertainment and the aftermath of unpacking everything when you get home and you should be onto a winner of a day out for Mother’s Day.

If you have other plans for Mother’s Day but would still like to take advantage of a bargain then why not visit Taronga Zoo Sydney on your birthday?

To celebrate Taronga’s first 100 years they are inviting everyone to spend their birthday at Taronga Zoo Sydney – for just $1!*

You need to register prior to your visit and provide proof of birthday.  Read the full terms and conditions here.

We have been regulars at Taronga Zoo so you can read my tips here.

Wishing all our Mums, Moms, Grannies and caregivers  a very Happy Mother’s Day. We’d love to see your pics so don’t forget to post them to our Facebook timeline with the hash tag #inspiredbyhwwt so we know we have permission to share them.
