Manly Dam is Sydney’s largest freshwater lake. Located in the proximity of so many amazing beaches we tend to forget about Manly Dam. It’s a great place for families to spend the day and an excellent place to host a child’s birthday party.
This is a fabulous summer children’s party venue, and has lots of activities at your fingertips – swimming, bushwalking, mountain biking, boating…
For your child’s birthday, you can settle in for the day, for a picnic under the tall trees. The best way to do this is to hire a picnic area. This is a very popular attraction during the summer, so hiring your own area is money well spent – guaranteeing your own special spot to make a day out of it.
If you have children that will be swimming with their heads underwater, book a spot in Picnic Area 4. This area is best for swimming due there being less ducks and geese around (meaning less duck and geese poo). In the cooler months (when swimming is not an option), Picnic Area 1 is a better option because its next to the playground, and has some nice options with shelter.
Of course, there are picnic tables with seats, however, most of the areas only have seats for 8-10 people. If you are having a family birthday party, then this means that quite a few people will get relegated to sit on the ground. A great way to make sure everyone is comfortable is to get in touch with the team at Outdoor Bean Bag Hire. You can hire their bean bags for the day, and make the day relaxing and comfortable for everybody.
Their beanbags come in a range of ten bright colours – so you can let the birthday boy or girl choose their favourite colour, and style the party up a little bit. These bags are tough enough to withstand a day at the Dam – they are made from vinyl and you can clean off dirt and sticky marks easily with a quick wipe. You can also squish the air out of them so they don’t take up that much space in the car.
Now you have got the seating sorted, you can settle in for a day or swimming, walking, and mountain biking at the dam. Your child will enjoy their birthday picnic lunch full of treats, with somewhere nice to relax for everybody if you need a bit of down time (thanks to Outdoor Beanbag Hire).
