There is plenty of things to do outdoors on the Coast, but the sun doesnít shine all the time (unfortunately).

Instead of staying at home, here are some ideas to keep kids from becoming bored on wet and rainy days.



Indoor Playgrounds

Kids are spoiled for choice with indoor playgrounds on the Coast, with several to choose from, including Monkey Mania at the Central Coast Leagues Club, Kidz HQ at Wyong, Playtime Kincumber at Kincumber Sports Centre, Inflatable World at Charmhaven and Impact Playcentre at Erina. Playtime Kincumber and Impact Playcentre are best for younger children, and the others cater to children of all ages.

Ice Skating

Located at Erina Fair, Erina Ice Arena hosts morning and afternoon public sessions from Monday to Friday and disco on ice sessions on Friday and Saturday nights. Thereís also a Coffee Club and Playgroup on Ice for mums held every Wednesday morning throughout the year.

Plaster Painting

Channel your kids creativity at the Art Barn in Gosford which is open 7 days a week, except on some public holidays.

Trampoline Centres

For somewhere the kids can burn energy on rainy days, Flip Out Gosford and Awezone Trampoline Park at Tuggerah, are both open 7 days a week. Trampoline centres may seem more suitable for older kids but both centres have designated play times for under 5ís. Flip Out offers discounted Mums & Bubs sessions during school hours, and Awezone has a separate foam pit trampoline for little children and holds Toddler Time sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays during school terms for children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years old. Tweens will love the After Dark sessions held at Flip Out on Friday and Saturday nights from 7-10pm.

Central Coast Marine Discovery Centre

If you want to mix recreation with a little education, you should visit the Marine Discovery Centre in Terrigal, which is open on weekends and most days during the week in school holidays from 10am to 4pm. Some of the marine animals on display in the tanks include baby stingrays, Lexie the octopus, eels and seahorses, and kids can actually touch some of the smaller animals in the rockpool such as hermit crabs and anemones, and feed the fish. Thereís also a really cool Dive Wreck Room that takes kids underwater in a model of the ex-HMAS Adelaide ship, life size models of sharks and turtles, and whale bones and shark jaws kids can hold.

Indoor Sports

Kids can play laser tag at Galaxy Laser Tag in Wyoming or Laserblast in Charmhaven, or do ten pin bowling at Bateau Bay or Wyoming.

Kids can take their bikes, scooters, skateboards and rollerblades to the indoor skateparks at Slam Factory or Riders Paradise, both in Tuggerah.

On summer days when itís raining but still hot and humid enough to swim, there are indoor swimming pools at Mingara One, Peninsula Leisure Centre at Woy Woy, Toukley Aquatic Centre and YMCA Swim School at the Mariners Centre of Excellence in Tuggerah.

Finally, thereís rock climbing at Clip & Climb at the Central Coast Leagues Club, which has 28 different walls for kids to choose from (but kids must be six or older).
