Summer school holiday fun

 

School holidays are almost here, but don’t panic! We have some great ideas for you and your children.

Children can make a cooling ice tea at Elizabeth Farm or Vaucluse House, learn to decorate and throw a boomerang at Rouse Hill House & Farm, make butterflies at Elizabeth Bay House or play at being a bushranger at Justice & Police Museum. Get creative with a fun ceramics workshop at Meroogal, become a funambulist at Museum of Sydney or unlock the secrets of our house museums on tailored family tours.

Find out more and book your holiday fun today.
