Autumn school holiday fun

 

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

Children can try their hand at farm-life during Earn Your Tucker at Rouse Hill House & Farm or Vaucluse House, get creative with a claymation workshop at Elizabeth Farm or explore the world of convict pirates at Hyde Park Barracks Museum. After dark, gather the family for a nightlight tour of Rouse Hill House & Farm or Elizabeth Farm, and during the day enjoy free family-tours and crafts included with entry at selected historic houses.

Find out more and book your holiday fun today.
