Looking for activities for the kids these school holidays? Perhaps activities that are not only fun but educational and with an environmental message might be just what you are after.
There’s so many options for holiday fun on the coast- one example is Parks Victoria’s holiday program – with activities being held over the school holiday period between 7 July and 14 July at a variety of locations along the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road (including Pt Addis and Urqharts Bluff) and across Victoria as part of their Junior Ranger program.
Activities include bushwalking and beach discoveries, and are suitable for primary school-aged children and their families. They also have some DIY activities for both indoors and out.
The Marine Discovery Centre is also running free activities with Rockpool Rambles being held on the coast, find out more here.
If its cold and wintery you can have fun at home on a rainy day using our free printable activities like board games puzzles and brain-teasers that are not only educational but fun for all ages.
If the weather is fine, you could head out and discover the coast, find inspiration for an activity trail and discover the Surf Coast Walk here or explore the wonders of the Eagle Rock Marine Sanctuary and Split Point Lighthouse here.
