There are so many family friendly adventures to be had across Queensland during the school holidays. Escape to an Island paradise up north. Elevate to new heights on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway in Cairns, or dive underwater and meet some turtles at a family-friendly snorkel spot. In Brisbane you could picnic in the parklands or the gardens, or cycle along the gorgeous riverfront. Give your kids an art, science, history or ancient culture fix at one of Brisbane’s museums. Thrill seekers know where to go. Gold Coast’s theme parks never disappoint.
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 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!
