At Sydney Olympic Park there’s an activity that’s out of this world – Space Racing! It’s a fun run meets treasure hunt. You’ll become an orienteer when you use their specially designed map to find as many checkpoints as you can in 45 minutes. Make sure you mark your find using your electronic pen-like device so you can see your results. Test yourself or race in a pair. Whether your best trait is brain or brawn you’ve got a chance to win and you’ll definitely have fun. Kids – bring your parents to play for free! It’s one of over 50 activities with Kids in the park. There’s something on every day in the school holidays at Sydney Olympic Park and there are loads of free and good-value options.

Sydney Weekender, hosted by Mike Whitney, is now in its 24th year!
Travelling around the city and throughout the length & breadth of the state, each episode investigates the best places to stay, eat and play so you can make the most of your weekend.
After retiring from international cricket, Mike first appeared on Sydney Weekender back in 1994, and since then has loved every minute of it.
Over the years, Mike has hosted Sydney Weekender from all over New South Wales; from Eden in the south, to Tibooburra in the far northwest of the state.
One of Mike's favourite moments was when he had the chance to fly in a fully restored De Havilland Vampire fighter jet at the Temora Aviation Museum. "The pilot opened the throttle and sent the Vampire vertical," he says, "It was such a blast - the whole time I was thinking - I've got the best job in the world."
Sydney Weekender is on every Sunday at 5.30pm on the Seven Network in Sydney, and across N.S.W. & the A.C.T. on the PRIME Network. It's repeated a week later on 7TWO.
We're also on 7TWO on Saturdays - Please check your local guide for times.
