Family fun at Gosford RSL just got even more awesome with the launch of their NEW Sunday Family Fun Days!

With winter slowly settling in, the timing couldn’t be better for this weekly event that promises to keep kids (and their families) well entertained whatever the weather!

Each Sunday between 2.30-3.30pm, children can head to the Coral Room at Gosford RSL where they’ll get to take part in a very special kids’ activity run by children’s entertainment gurus Rock Sloth – and it’s absolutely FREE! From kids’ discos and science shows to magic shows and bingo, there’s something happening every week that promises to excite! PLUS, there’ll be a family raffle held between 4-5 pm each week in the Lounge.

So, if you’re looking for a family-friendly feed this weekend, you can’t go past Gosford RSL. With the new Sunday Family Fun Days, their huge pub food menu, their super-sized backyard with picnic tables, table tennis, and outdoor games, AND all the usual excitement that comes with paying a visit to the Mini Mania indoor play area – you’re in for an afternoon of epic family entertainment!

For more details on Mini Mania fun, read on!

Mini Mania Indoor Play Area

Teeny tots will love this place… and so will their mummies. The soft-play area is fenced and air-conditioned and has a two-level play maze packed with obstacles for kids to crawl through, squeeze under and scramble over. This play space used to be restricted to children under five, but it’s recently become an area open to all ages.

Just outside the play area is the eating area – it’s separately fenced, has large tables for group catch-ups, and here’s the best part, has an adjoining nursing/changing room, so you can let your toddler continue to play while you change your baby. Hallelujah! Don’t you hate it when you have to lug the stroller, baby and toddler to the bathroom just for a nappy change.

The soft-play area is ideal for the 1-4 age group who go crazy for the dual-level maze, but if you have a bub who’s on the crawl or just learning to teeter-totter, they’ll also love riding the big red car, scrambling over the foam crocodiles and playing with the wall activity panels. They also have a soft-play baby zone specifically for tiny tots.

There’s an adjoining larger eating area and lounge where older children can play computer games, a claw arcade game and watch flicks on TV.

The lounge area is also a good spot for mothers groups to meet up as there’s ample room for multiple prams and a large rug for bubs to roll about on on the floor.

The Cafe has a large menu. Think smashed avocado, eggs Benedict, and fruit salad for breakfast; pulled pork nachos, pumpkin and feta frittata, and BBQ-chicken pizza for lunch. Kids can order a cheeseburger, fish and chips, the always-faithful peanut butter sandwich or fairy bread, and at $2 for a sandwich, you won’t break the bank.

Don’t forget to sign your children up to the Mini Mania club – it’s free! Each month your child will receive a free gift when they show their membership card at the Cafe and they’ll get a free kids meal on their birthday.

There’s a HUGE backyard too!

If the sun has got his hat on and little ones are keen to stretch their legs outside, the HUGE outdoor space of Gosford RSL’s “backyard” is just perfect for energetic kids who like to burn off some steam – both before and after their cheeseburger arrives! There are a heap of picnic tables so plenty of room for families to convene, as well as table tennis and outdoor games to keep even the older kids entertained while you enjoy a beer and a schnitty in the sun!
