Go Travel Hawkesbury: Bored Kids In Your Household?
ROUSE HILL HOUSE & FARM
It's school holidays. You've been to the beach, the museum or maybe the zoo. But, 'what can we do' is still the plaintive cry around your house. 'I'm bored. What can I do? Can I invite Susie over? Or can I go to Jakie's house?'
Well, could the attractions in the Hawkesbury save your sanity? We give you a list and some of the activities. You don't have to listen to screaming Susie for an afternoon and Jakie's house is out of the question since the last playdate. He's a bad influence on even the best kids, which of course, yours are!

Go Travel Hawkesbury: Rouse Hill Family Expands
Rouse Hill House & Farm family has grown recently. From our source we learned:
'Over the past two weeks we have two new calves born at the Farm. Both girls, they have very protective mothers who are teaching them by gentle moos of encouragement. Our farmer said, " An hour after she was born our last calf was up onto her legs for the first time. Our other calf, born earlier in the week, couldn't be happier as she keeps trying to get a good look. This causes both new moms to be very loud and protective.
The rest of the herd keep an eye out for them and make sure they don't stray from the group. Later this week, we will write about the wonderful new merino sheep who recently came to live on the farm! At the top of this blog, you can see a photo of the sheep who are getting used to the visitors to Rouse Hill House & Farm. They are naturally quite shy!
What a wonderful experience for our kids who are now primarily living a suburban or urban life. Rouse Hill House & Farm offers a tranquil space for kids to see the 'real deal'.
