Summer School Holiday Guide 2023 – Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast

Here it is! The big summer school holiday that we both crave and dread! The downtime with the family will be nice, but how long until the bickering begins, and how will we keep them busy for six weeks without it costing a small fortune?!

Don’t fret! Our Summer School Holiday Guide is here to save the day. Crammed with activities, camps, shows and play ideas, there’s plenty to keep the little ones busy and engaged throughout the long summer break.

As we all know, Queensland families love to explore all corners of our beautiful state. Therefore, our massive Summer School Holiday Guide is split into three areas: Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Take a day trip, a weekend away, or stay local… we’ve got you covered!
