It includes the right trips for rainy days dn kids, and suggests the perfect places to go for multicultrual, active, free, transport-related, iconic Australian, historic, wet and wild days out.
Go with Simon Webster to Lakemba Mosque and Luna Park; a toy museum in the Blue Mountains and a shrine to the royal family in Wollongong. Deliver mail up the Hawkesbury, go behind the scenes at Sydney Airport, bushwalk up Middle Harbour Creek and put Vietnamese herbs behind your ear in Cabramatta.

Simon Webster is a Sydney based journalist whose daytrip reviews have appeared weekly in the Sun-Herald since 2006. Over the past 15 years, his humorous columns in the UK and Australia have attracted cult followings. Admittedly a couple of these cults believe Jesus lives in an abandoned spaceship just outside Tilba Tilba and the secret to eternal life is turnip juice, but the author values their support anyway.
He lives in the inner west with his wife, two children and chickens.
