Spring School Holidays in Canberra

Canberra is blooming this spring and is the ideal destination for a family holiday. Delight in time together after a busy term and find the perfect blend of relaxation for tired minds and energising activities to keep everyone entertained.

Here are our top 5 picks for your September School Holiday Getaway:

1. Questacon

Learning can be fun! Questacon is a great day for all ages with interactive displays and exhibitions exploring science and technology. During the school holidays, we are excited about the special programs running, including:

  • Tasty Science – Sunday 24 September – Three sessions: 10am, 11am & 12pm
  • Liquid Nitrogen Show – Sunday 24 September – Three sessions: 1.30pm, 2.30pm & 3.30pm

2. National Museum of Australia

Discover and learn at this world-class museum. Kids will particularly enjoy KSpace, their very own interactive space. Plus, this school holidays plan your trip in advance and get tickets to:

  • Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks – 28 July to 8 October. See 20 amazing models of international skyscrapers constructed by Australian Ryan McNaught, certified LEGO professional. Create your own tower with more than 200,000 loose bricks in the construction areas.

3. Time for a sweet treat? Visit Patissez

For the ultimate sweet treat with a side of excessive, try the original FreakShake at Patissez at either their Manuka or Civic location. Trust us when we say these are on another level!

4. Get on your bike!

Put all that sugar to good use and get outside to enjoy the spring weather on a bike. Available for hire right outside the hotel, point your bike towards Lake Burley Griffin and circumnavigate the lake. You’ll ride past Floriade and many of Canberra’s national institutions.

5. Floriade NightFest

Worried a flower festival won’t keep the whole family entertained? Think again! Floriade’s after-dark experience is running over the last two weekends in September with sensational light displays and an impressive program of entertainment. Read more about Floriade here.

Enjoy the Family Getaway package which includes accommodation in a twin room with two double beds, full buffet breakfast in Redsalt Restaurant and a 3infun ticket, which includes family entry into three great attractions – Questacon, Cockington Green Gardens and the Australian Institute of Sport.
