Keeping your children entertained during the school holidays can prove to be quite the challenge. For those located in Queensland, we’ve hand-picked a handful of things to do that can keep the kids busy these September school holidays.
Pacific Fair is hosting a free event designed for big kids and toddlers a ball pit ‘pool’ party. There will be a designated ball pit pool filled with inflatable pool toys, slides with a giant foam pool and kids can ride a wave on a mechanical inflatable surfboard. Taking place from 21 September to 6 October, it’s the perfect activity to keep kids busy these school holidays. The ball pits will be outside Myer and in the outdoor resort area.
Introducing young children to yoga can help them develop healthy habits early on. On 25 September from 9 am–10.15 am, kids aged 2–6 can join a free kid’s yoga session with Revive Yoga and Wellness Centre. No yoga experience is required and kids who are interested are welcome to join in for some movement and fun. You can register here.
For the ultimate mini golf experience with three different themed courses, head to Putt Putt Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast. If the kids eventually tire of mini golf, they can play classic video games at the arcade and cool off at the snack bar. On Saturday 21 September, Putt Putt will be celebrating their 50th birthday. Everyone is invited to this full day of exciting activities like unlimited mini golf for everyone, free sausage sizzles, competitions and music.

Fruit Picking in Bli Bli
Fruit picking is good fun, gets the kids outdoors and is a great way to educate them about where food comes from. With spring in season, it’s worth taking the family to McMartin’s Farm in the heart of the Sunshine Coast.
