Winter School Holidays

Monday 28 June to Friday 9 July 2021

We can now look forward to slowing down the pace a little and embracing the cooler weather during the winter school holidays.

As Sir Ranulph Fiennes says; “there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing”. So let’s get out there with the kids and explore our beautiful region.

We recently put a shout-out for all the awesome things that can help fill your winter holidays throughout the Greater Port Macquarie. Be sure to also check out our holiday programs and what’s on for more school holiday inspiration.
