It’s time to start planning how to keep the kids entertained (and avoid too much screen time) over the winter break. The good news is there are loads of activities you can enjoy as a family – from a trip to the aquarium to a glamping adventure! Here are a couple of experiences you might want to add to your holiday to-do list while you’re spending some quality time together. Hot tip: When browsing the site, filter by ‘Now open’ or head to our open experiences page to see all of your local options.
Glamping is camping without the effort. Everything is set up for you so all you need to do is remember the marshmallows. Oh, and the tents are usually a little more luxurious than what you might be used to.
If you’re based in Sydney a trip to Taronga is always a great option. Arrive in style via the ferry and spend a day exploring the zoo and getting up close and personal with the animals! No matter where you are in Australia there are plenty of aquariums or wildlife sanctuaries and parks to explore!
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.
If you plan to chase the sun up north, help the kids tick off a bucket list item with a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef. If they’re lucky, they might just find Nemo!
Need a rainy-day activity? Put your thinking caps on and work together to break out of an escape room. Your detective skills will be put to the test as you work together as a family to solve the puzzle and gain your freedom!
If you’re a Queenslander and are planning a trip to the Gold Coast, the 14 day unlimited pass is a great option and gives you entry to 4 theme parks: Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet ‘n’ Wild and Paradise Country. There is also a 3-day pass to Dreamworld, WhiteWater World and SkyPoint. Check their websites for exact opening dates.
