Cheap Days Out for Families in 2022

by Grace

Looking for some cheap days out for the family in 2022? Look no further. Here is a list of fun and affordable activities that you can do in Australia during these difficult financial times. From enjoying a picnic at the local park to going on a nature hike, there is something for everyone on this list. Get your calendar out and start planning some fun adventures for you and your loved ones!

Take Lunch to a Local Park

Rather than having lunch at home or going out to a restaurant, why not pack a picnic and head to your local park? This is a great activity for the whole family, and it won’t cost you a lot of money. Just make sure to pack some sandwiches, fruit, and drinks for everyone. In fact, take what you were going to eat at home and it won’t cost anything extra.

Visit a Museum

Don’t worry, you will find all sorts of free museums across Australia. Many of them are world-renowned, too. For example, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne is free to enter, as is the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney. There are also free museums in Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide. Just do a quick Google search and you’ll find one near you.

When choosing a museum, let your children in on the decision-making. They’re more likely to enjoy the experience if they’ve had a hand in choosing where to go. And, once you’re there, be sure to ask them what they thought of the exhibits; their insights might surprise you.

Take a Hike

Hiking is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air, and it’s usually free. There are walking trails of all difficulty levels all across Australia, so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. If you have children, it could get them away from the TV and phone screens for a few hours. Of course, you can tailor the experience to your fitness levels. If you haven’t paid attention to your fitness levels for some time, you can see hiking as a challenge for you and the family – something that you regularly do to boost your fitness.

Boost Your Financial Position

In our experience, most people think that they are lumbered with their financial positions. In reality, you have many options and routes to choose from. For example, some people can get a raise at work and this opens up many days out for families in 2022. Elsewhere, others can get a short-term cash boost from Cashify to cover car repairs and other emergencies. Once again, this opens up some funds for days out.

Camp in Your Garden

So long as you have a tent, you can have an affordable family day out in your garden. This is the perfect activity for young children as it helps to stimulate their imaginations. All you need is a few pieces of equipment and some food, and you’re good to go. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even camp out in the wild.

When camping in the garden, you have all the amenities seconds away and you can get your children (and yourselves) away from screens for an afternoon or evening. It’s a perfect way to connect with nature and each other; just make sure you have a plan for when the weather takes a turn for the worst or when the little one needs a quick escape to the toilet in the middle of the night.

Other ideas include:

  • Going on a nature walk and seeing how many different things you can find
  • Building a den out of blankets and cushions
  • Flying a kite
  • Going to the library
  • Making homemade pizzas
  • Baking cakes
