Summer holiday activities for kids

Get up close and personal with the animals

A trip to the zoo is a great activity for the kids during the holidays – it’s fun, educational and gives them the chance to get to know some new furry friends. A lot of places offer animal encounters, be it swimming alongside the croc enclosure or cuddling a koala!

Make a splash!

If the kids are keen to cool off at the beach over summer there are plenty of water sports for them to try. Paddle boarding is a great way to spend some time on the water. Perhaps you know a pirate who’d love to sail the high seas on a tall ship cruise? Or maybe you know a little mermaid who’d love to show off her swimming skills with her beautiful mermaid tail? Summer is a great time to enjoy the ocean and spend some time on the sand.

Swing from the trees

If you’re tired of watching the kids climb the walls at home, take them to a high ropes course and watch them climb trees instead! This is a great day out for the family, with loads of exciting adventures to be had on everything from zip lines to flying foxes.
