Entertainment ideas for kids in school holidays

Take the kids to a treetop adventure park, which have specially designed harnesses to keep the kids safe as they climb trees and glide on zip-lines or flying foxes. You’ll find treetop adventure parks on the South Coast, Central Coast and North Coast.

After fun at Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures, south of Sydney, drive to the toboggans and giant waterslides at Jamberoo Action Park in Jamberoo. Check opening days for the Action Park before you plan your trip. You can also have fun golfing with kids on the 18-hole putt putt course at Illawarra Golf Complex and Crazy Putt in Windang, 25 minutes' drive from Jamberoo.

Massive trampolines, foam pits and skate ramps are all features of the Flip Out Trampoline Arena, found at various locations across NSW, including Dubbo, home of the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, and Gosford, near the Australian Reptile Park and Australian Walkabout Wildlife Park.

If you're on the South Coast, kids can ride the rollercoaster or magic carpet slide at Magic Mountain in Merimbula, where you can also take whale-watching cruises with Merimbula Marina.
