We are now in a week into the mid-year Queensland school holidays, and to those with school-aged children, we hope you are enjoying it so far…whether you are staying at home or vacationing within our gorgeous expansive state with so much to see from outback, to rainforests, to sea!
There is so much to do on the Sunshine Coast that even staying at home feels like a holiday. From spending time on the beach (yes, even in winter) to taking scenic drives up to the hinterland and maybe a picnic in a national park, or a walk through the rainforest at Kondalilla Falls…these are free activities that get you out and about in the glorious sunshine.
With restrictions now eased, you can take the kids to either Australia Zoo or Wildlife HQ to get close and personal with some wildlife; Sea Life at Mooloolaba is also a fun and educational place to visit, and then maybe fish and chips at the Spit afterwards! The cinemas at Sunshine Plaza have reopened and have some great kids’ movies on over the holidays – ensure you book prior due to social distancing requirements.
The Ginger Factory at Yandina reopened on June 27 and has some fabulous rides and attractions for children, and plenty to delight the adults as well. The giant Skyline wheel, Australia’s tallest travelling portable observation Ferris wheel is at Bulcock Beach, Caloundra until 21 July…showcasing a bird’s eye view across the hinterland mountains, oceans, and towns from its 35m-high peak, it’s an experience not to miss, day or night!
With so much here to see and do, even if you can’t get away for a break, you and the kids can still have the holiday of a lifetime!
