Autumn School Holiday Guide for the Greater Port Macquarie

Autumn School Holidays

Monday 15 April to Friday 26 April 2024

Autumn is here and that means the Autumn school holidays are just around the corner! 🌞

School holidays are important for children as they offer a break from the routine and demands of school. They also give families a chance to spend time together doing things they enjoy.

On the flip side, working parents can find school holidays challenging, stressful and expensive!

To help families juggle the conflicting demands during the holiday period, we recently put a shout-out for all the awesome things that can help fill the Autumn holidays throughout the Greater Port Macquarie and surrounding regions.

Be sure to also check out our holiday programs and what’s on for more school holiday inspiration.
