There are so many family friendly adventures to be had across the Northern Territory during the school holidays. Take your little budding artist to Maruku Arts these holidays to create their own Dot Painting masterpiece. Watch the kids squeals with delight as wild crocodiles leap into the air on the Adelaide River. Or, hit the hot road and head to the red centre. Rich in ancient Aboriginal culture, history and stories, Alice Springs is the spiritual heart of Australia, and an incredible place to take the kids!

Staying Local?

That’s inviting too, especially when you can’t get away. Beat school holiday boredom at home with activities like cupcake decorating competitions, movie marathons, pillow fortress building, arts and craft, or DIY science experiments (if you’re game!). You could even build a little herb garden, or, let the kids loose in your wardrobe to put on a fashion parade! Blaring Madonna’s ‘90s tunes for the show is optional.

Get around one of the world food days at home celebrating something like International Waffle Day. Be creative!
