School’s out for Summer - fun’s in
Published 17 December 2021
Moreton Bay’s summer of fun has kicked off and there’s plenty of free or low-cost activities to keep the kids occupied all the way through to February.
Mayor Peter Flannery said there’s never been a better time be a kid (or a parent) than right now with a plethora of activities to suit all interests from Council’s libraries, galleries and museums, to environmental centres and our Active Holidays program.
“Bookings for our Active Holidays program, which runs from January 10-23, are now open and it features a range of fun water activities, adventure, sport and nature activities,” he said.
“Learn to juggle with our Circus Skills workshop, find yourself in nature with our all-inclusive Scavenger Hunt and Nature Journaling experiences, or you can learn to scooter, skateboard and BMX at one of our skatepark clinics and so much more!
“Never fear if you can’t wait until the new year, because there’s plenty happening at our libraries, galleries and museums like the interactive Green Screen exhibition at Pine Rivers Art Gallery where the whole family can create stories using stop-motion animation and more.
“You can help escape an under-siege Hogwarts from Lord Voldemort at Redcliffe Library’s Harry Potter Escape Room for the slightly older children and teenagers.
“Join the summer reading club at all of our 10 library locations near you, register for our Minecraft Club, build some LEGO creations and much much more!
“Nature lovers can also explore any of our environmental centres, from navigating through the natural wonders at CREEC and Kumbartcho with the new Agents of Discovery app to exploring the mangrove wetlands at Osprey House.”
