School holiday activities for the family

by Elisa Parry

School is almost out, which means it’s time to start planning how to keep the kids entertained (and avoid too much screen time) over the break. The good news is there are loads of activities you can enjoy as a family – from a trip to the aquarium or a theme park to a glamping adventure! Here are a couple of experiences you might want to add to your holiday to-do list.

Mother’s Day experiences for two

Spend a day at the zoo

If you’re based in Sydney a trip to Taronga is always a great option to keep the kids entertained in the holidays. Arrive in style via the ferry and spend a day exploring the zoo and getting up close and personal with the animals!

Take on the theme parks

Heading to the Gold Coast? Build up your courage and take on the theme parks! If you’re planning to be there for a while, the holiday super pass is a great option as it gives you seven days of unlimited entry into three theme parks. There is also a three-day pass to Dreamworld, WhiteWater World and SkyPoint.

Take a cruise

Spending time on the water is always special. Treat the kids to a tall ship cruise where they can pretend to be pirates! Or, if they are looking for something a little more thrilling, they’ll love a jet boat experience.

Fly through the trees

There are a range of flying fox and zipline experiences across Australia. The kids (and adults) will have the chance to release their inner Tarzan as they fly over the tree tops! This is an awesome activity for all ages.
