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. 


  1. War Memorial is a wonderful place to explore with the children. You can plan several trips to explore different parts due to its size.
  2. 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! 
  3. Parliament House is where the Parliament of Australia meets throughout the year. 
  4. Weston Park is a great place for picnics, walking and bike rides and playing on the equipment.
  5. Floriade is a great way to introduce the children to different types of flowers. Although the entry is free, some activities charge admission.
  6. Kingston Foreshore is great for bike rides, walking and picnics. Enjoy the serenity of the lake and birdlife.
  7. 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.
