Sydney and surround with family of 7

We are travelling in a group of 4 adults ( including 2 seniors) and 3 young children, during early December. Thought of north but change plan to do south of sydney, blue mountain and city. Tentative plan:

Day 1, arriving Sydney

Day 2, leave for Kiama, see blowhole, overnight ( whether to stay in kiama/geroa/gerringong/nowra)

Day 3, Leave for Huskinsson for dolphin spotting tour, Lady Denman Museum ,

Drive to Bowral and overnight.[Bowral/mittagong] ( am contemplating whether to do this as it involve change of accomodation which can be a hassle)

Day 4 Drive to blue mountain, stop by glenbrook fir Eureka clearing, overnight at Katoomba or Leura

Day 5 Scenic world. wentworth fall, Echo Point/3 Sisters,

Day 6 Free & easy, overnight same accomodation

Day 7 After breakfast, Drive from Katoomba to Sydney via Bell line; Medlow bath, historic old towns of Richmond and Windsor, Mt Tomah, Featherdale wild life park(optional),

Overnight at sydney [ trying to find budget option. looking at Breakfree on George/Hyde Park Inn/Quest Service Worldsquare, as wish to be near chinatown for the seniors' interest]

Day 8-10 Sydney

Trying to mix the interest and concern for elderly to kids, and nature lover versus culture lover.

(Have posted this in another post but no response hence trying luck by putting in as new question)

Appreciate for comments to guide in refining the plan

Hi, after some readings, have revised my trip planning to the following ( a big change to earlier plan). Hope the experts can help me to refine the itinerary

Day 1 (Saturday) Arrive hotel 1030am, lunch/check in and rest (nap), dinner/darling quarter playground/fire works@830pm

Day 2 (Sunday) train to Circular Quay, then ferry to Manly Beach, Oceanworld Manly, Art Gallery of NSW


Day 3 (Monday) National Maritime Museum / Whales Exhibition, Lunch@sydney fish market, Royal Botanic garden-Choo choo express, Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk. The Rocks discovery museum, Observatory Hill park

Day 4 (Tuesday) ( not sure yet, am deciding whether to go Taronga Zoo ( as may visit Featherdale enroute blue mountain) or Sydney Aquarium/Customs House at Circular Quay)

Day 5 (Wed) Walk by Hyde Park/ Chinese Garden/Monorail fun ride around town/Shopping Paddy market

Day 6 (Thurs) Check out hotel/pick up car/ lunch and Kiama blowhole/Check in motel(Vincentia) or Greenwell rd

Day 7 (Friday) Huskisson : Dolphin spotting tour, Lady Denman Museum

Day 8 (Sat) Check out, lunch@bowral, (Featherdale wildlife?) check in Katoomba/ night view of three sisters

Day 9 (Sun) Waradah aboriginal center/Scenic World/wenworth fall/Leura cascade/Leura town

Day 10 (Mon) check out (request 12pm), drive from Katoomba to Sydney via Bell line ( any recommended lunch spot and tea time spot?), towards Sydney airport. return car before 6pm, check in @7pm

If we were already have the multi 2 or 3 pass, do we still need to pursue the family fun day tickets?

Appreciate your feedback.
