We have been going for short drives in the country most Saturday afternoons over recent weekends – we usually just drive along without any specific destination in mind for an hour or so and then stop at a park for the kids to run around and play for a while and then go home again. I am planning a trip to Brisbane for Easter and We will be travelling in the car across three days so I am trying to get the kids used to the idea.

Last weekend we found ourselves in Yass, a small town about 40 minutes north west of Canberra. They have a very beautiful playground right at the start of the town with a large spiral slippery dip, lush green grass and picnic tables with beautiful artwork.

If you are passing through yass I definitely recommend stopping by – if only to walk on the beautifully manicured lawn!
