Spring into some school holiday fun

school holidays (1)Yay, holidays are here again!

Starting on September 19, we’ll see the 4WDs roll into town ready for laidback week or so of beach or river camping. From the basic to luxury we have accommodation covered here on the Cooloola Coast.

For the first year, we also add a in a long weekend at the end of the holiday October 4-6.

Teens can train up at the Bronze Medallion or SRC camp, and youngsters will have lots of options for squad and fun at the Aquatic Centre.

There’s learn Council’s Learn to Skate sessions on September 23 – free and worthwhile for all levels/ages to come along.

Local libraries offer some great sessions, keep an eye on our facebook page for dates. Gympie Regional Gallery has loads of children’s art sessions too.

As well as the Seafood Festival in the middle weekend, Tin Can Bay has children’s activities at the Community Information Day on September 26.

Rainbow Beach Pub offers a kid’s activity sessions on a Sunday afternoon, or you can keep them entertained in the Pub and Sport Club kid’s rooms and enjoy a quiet one on the deck.

People escape to the Cooloola Coast to get back to nature, enjoy the great outdoors and physical activity: Fishing, swimming, surfing, bushwalking, boating, 4WDing, sliding!

Shift from screen time to green time and to make playing outdoors and exploring our national parks and forests a bigger part of your family’s lives.

school holidaysBuilding sandcastles, climbing trees, making cubbies, exploring rockpools and waterfalls on the beach, Carlo Sandblow, Inskip Point, Poona Lake, Seary’s Creek, Fraser Island, the Sandy Straits… It is no wonder that appetites are sharpened on beach holidays.

Check out our visitor’s guide on page 34 – there is so much you can do! If it is a bit windy bring a kite (Gallery Jilarty has new kites instore) or try kitesurfing.

Whales are still playing in our waters – so hop on a kayak tour or tour from Hervey Bay.

On the Cooloola Coast you can “get away from it all” and still enjoy life’s little luxuries. Good coffee. Fresh seafood. Daily papers. Playgrounds. Markets. You can still easily park your car at the beach or in town, there will always be a spot to leave your towel, play a game of cricket, soccer or throw a ball.

Happily for parents, this is stuff of kid’s dreams, just the thing to tire them out and the very same reason they keep asking “when can we come back?”
