13 Mar 2018

Parents can breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to entertaining the kids during the April school holidays with over 50 activities all on offer at Sydney Olympic Park to thrill and excite the young ones.

Here are our top picks for these school holidays

Get creative with a writing workshop
Hosted by award-winning author Dr Bernard Cohen, we have an array of full-day workshops on offer to inspire those young minds to get creative and develop their skills.

Take aim and let the kids enjoy the glory of hitting a bullseye at the Archery Centre with a Little Archers program suitable for 7-9 years and Kids on Target for ages 10+. Why not pack a picnic and head to nearby Bicentennial Park to make a day of it!

Flying trapeze workshops
For the beginners as young as 5 up to the more experienced flyers, the kids will be on cloud 9 after an exhilarating flying trapeze experience. Located in the grounds of the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre why not pair it up with a splash to really burn that energy!

It’s all about self expression and experimentation in these school holiday workshops, where kids will create an artwork inspired by the ARTEXPRESS exhibition

Walk and Squawk
Encourage the kids off the couch and get into nature with Walk and Squawk. Go on a walking adventure to discover the birds all around us and learn their secrets by BirdLife Discovery Centre volunteers.

Gym Sports is suitable for boys and girls of all ages where they will learn to tumble, balance, swing and jump including using the crowd favourite foam pit!

Science workshops
It’s time to investigate and get hands-on with science in a range of fun half day workshops by Fizzics Education like Chemical Concoctions where you discover the chemistry of fireworks or how things glow!

All-day recreational program
Sometimes we need a full day of fun planned and this is your answer…get in quick for the Aquatic Centre's legendary All Day Recreation Program.
