As well as feeding the dolphins and going to the beach – there’s loads to do for the school holidays!
We’ve got the beach, waterways, superb fishing, dolphins to feed, beautiful walking and cycling paths. We have kilometres of sand and bush tracks in the heart of Australia’s Nature Coast for families to get back to nature. On top of that, look at what else we have to offer these school holidays:
Gympie Regional Council is providing the perfect excuse to get out of the house these school holidays with the Holiday Fun Program. The Holiday Fun program provides the Gympie region with a range of budget friendly, new and fun activities for kids of all ages.
There’s Christmas on a plate, Wednesday December 23, 2015 at Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach Libraries, and Street Dance for 8-17 year olds, Monday January 11, 2016 at Tin Can Bay and on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 see Kids on Tour (Qld Arts Gallery APT8) at Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach Libraries.
Plus check out our local libraries for loads of activities including Christmas Craft, Lego Comp, Cartoon Dave, Summer Reading Club and more.
Finally, at the Gympie Regional Gallery, get creative with Secret Signs and Symbols, Nature Collage, Monster and Alien Gourds and Fabulous Sculpture. December 17 and 18 you can make a quirky Christmas elf, or some Christmas cards, or create a special gift for someone or a Christmas gourd.
