Spring has finally arrived. With every change of season comes the perfect chance for a fresh routine and a well-deserved break during school holidays. From star gazing at Darby Falls to snorkeling around the Solitary Islands, there are countless activities for the whole family to enjoy this spring!
Anya Treurnicht has some ideas to get you started…

Snowy Mountains
Escape the bustling city and into the serene snowy mountains. The final layers of snow are beginning to make way for the wild flowers and gorgeous trails for horse riding, hiking or picnicking. Plan your day at the pace you want and enjoy the tranquility.


Oakleigh Farmstay
Swap homework for farm work to enjoy a fun hands-on and unique experience collecting eggs, cray fish and feeding animals at Oakleigh Farmstay. Hosting star-gazing every night, Darby Falls observatory is not one to be missed. Make sure to book ahead so you don’t miss out on the spectacular comets!


Australian Museum
Adventures aren’t always outdoors. Recently opened Wild Plant at the Australian Museum offers an incredible array of biodiversity with over 400 animal specimens. With the new and ongoing $5.5 million transformation, the museum is perfect for a day-outing. Children under 16 gain free entry.


Coffs Harbour
The end of winter leaves any beach-lover itching for some sand between their toes. Take advantage of the spring weather and head to Coffs Harbour for a great snorkeling adventure off the Solitary Islands. Offering an abundance of sea-life, you’ll struggle to get the kids out of the water! The Nautilus Resort is highly recommended to experience the ultimate island life with beachfront villas.


Oakhurst Cottage
This place has it all! A relaxing weekend for parents with adventures for kids. Kids will love the incredible outings to find precious gems and meet all the animals around the farm stay. Get comfortable in the cabins, or sleep under the stars at the campsites available at Three Waters High Country Holidays.



An oldie but a goldie, Wet’n’Wild Sydney is every kids dream. Offering endless fun, you can go from relaxing in the wave pools to picking up some serious speed on the impressive waterslides. Opening September 19, the timing couldn’t be more perfect to welcome spring. Beat the spring crowds and pack your swimmers for a day at Sydney’s newest and most fun holiday-addition.
