Active Holidays program

No need to worry about entertaining the kids these school holidays, City of Moreton Bay has you and your little people covered with a spring school holiday program (16 Sept - 1 Oct) blossoming with fun, budget-friendly activities for all ages.

With a huge range of free or low-cost options on offer over the two-week break, Council is helping families to get out and explore more of Moreton Bay.

Mayor Peter Flannery said the program is perfect for making the most of our great outdoors and Council’s specialty venues, waterways, parks and playgrounds.

“As the weather warms up, there's no reason to stay cooped up indoors, instead make the most of the many free or low-cost activities happening around our great City,” he said.

“Council is committed to providing Moreton Bay communities with access to affordable activities that support healthy and active lifestyle choices and community connection.

“We have a host of family-friendly events and exhibitions, from live llama visits, dirtgirlworld performances, kids craft sessions, wildlife shows and science experiments that are sure to ignite imaginations and get kids moving.

“Catering for kids and teens (3 to 17 years), and perfect for those itching to get out and burn some energy, bookings are also now open for our popular Active Holidays program.

“There’s water activities, little athletics, yoga, martial arts, gymnastics, boxing, sports, drumming and even hip-hop dancing to name just a few.”

The 2023 City of Moreton Bay spring school holiday program includes a huge range of activities with some special highlights:

  • Dip your toe in to Surf Life Saving with Active Holidays

This event is part of Council’s free, family-friendly festival promoting sustainability and eco-friendly lifestyle ideas on Saturday 30 September at Caboolture Town Square.
