Autumn School Holidays

Forget dusty old museums where you can look but not touch - this Autumn, get ‘hands-on’ with our exciting program of school holiday fun.

Complete a convict quest at Hyde Park Barracks Museum, eat bush tucker at Rouse Hill House & Farm, build a giant sandcastle at Museum of Sydney or be a bushranger at the Justice & Police Museum. There’s also an egg-cellent Easter trail along with traditional cooking classes where you can make your own damper. You’re spoilt for choice, so let those little imaginations run wild these school holidays.
