An amazing day exploring places you’d never normally get to go – while helping disadvantaged children

NSW Kids in Need Foundation Ltd raises funds for six kids’ charities to make a real difference in the lives of children. They are SHINE for Kids, Bear Cottage Children’s Hospice, Central Coast Kids In Need, Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Australia, Muscular Dystrophy NSW and The Burns Unit at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

The World’s Largest Open House is an annual appeal directly to the public of NSW for donations to make a difference in the lives of so many children. It doesn’t take much to make that difference, and many small donations can go a long way and, in turn, spread happiness to kids who need it the most.

The World’s Largest Open House – Sunday 30 April 2017

NSW Fire & Rescue, the Royal Australian Navy and many others opened their doors in support of NSW Kids in Need. Doors that are normally closed opened up for behind-the-scenes access to raise money in support of NSW kids who are in desperate need.

On Sunday 30 April thousands of people walked through the doors of places they’d only dreamt of exploring and witnessing first hand or maybe places they’d just wondered about. And while they were there, they made a donation to NSW Kids in Need.

Sydney Airport will hosted inaugural Airside Adventure in support of NSW Kids in Need. Guests gained an insight into how an airport operates in this unique behind-the-scenes, one-and-a-half-hour bus tour hosted by Sydney Airport volunteer tour guides. They saw the international and domestic precincts as well as the full length of the airport’s main runway – and witnessed first-hand how people from 800 businesses come together to ensure the smooth operation of the airport.

Gosford Classic Car Museum, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, also joined us this year. Attendees enjoyed a magnificent range of 450 classic and vintage cars and motorcycles, with 35 Ferraris and the full range of Holdens from 1948 to 1978.
