Keeping your children occupied during the school holidays is always hard. So below are a few suggestions of interesting places to visit in the Canberra area with FREE entry.
- War Memorial is a wonderful place to explore with the children. You can plan several trips to explore different parts due to its size.
- National Gallery of Art is a great way to introduce your children to all forms of art. Who knows, maybe your child is a budding Picasso and this visit will help with their creative juices to surface!
- Parliament House is where the Parliament of Australia meets throughout the year.
- Weston Park is a great place for picnics, walking and bike rides and playing on the equipment.
- Floriade is a great way to introduce the children to different types of flowers. Although the entry is free, some activities charge admission.
- Kingston Foreshore is great for bike rides, walking and picnics. Enjoy the serenity of the lake and birdlife.
- Boundless Playground is Canberra’s first all abilities playground, located on the shore of Lake Burley Griffin at Kings Park.
Just remember just taking a walk/riding a bike to your local park is also easy if you don't have transport. You could also have a picnic lunch in your backyard and invite some friends. Cooking with your children is fun and it helps them learn about maths, science and literacy.
The above are just a few activities you and your children can enjoy during the school holidays.
