Keep the kids busy in the Scenic Rim during the Easter school holidays, with this bumper schedule of cool activities, workshops and events.
There will be no time for ‘I’m bored’ during the Easter holidays by the time you’ve visited the camel farm, hunted for Easter Eggs at a sheep farm and tested yourself on a high ropes course.
Here are ten holiday ideas the kids (and parents) will love.
Enlist the help of the outdoor experts at Camp Kokoda, set on 660 acres on the southern shores of Lake Maroon. Activities available onsite include a flying fox, abseiling, giant swing, canoeing, high ropes, orienteering and hiking.
All of these activities will be supervised by the resident outdoor education specialists.
The school holiday camp runs from April 8 to 11 for children aged eight to 14.
The Council’s popular school holiday series returns with an even bigger schedule of amazing events and activities.
Workshops on offer include a juggling and stage performance workshop with Byron Hutton and Joe Fisher, Flipside Circus workshops, Creative Cooking workshops and art workshops.
Plus there are some great family-friendly films showing in Beaudesert and Boonah.
The team at Mt Barney Lodge will introduce your youngsters to the joy of the outdoors through the CREATE holiday program.
The schedule combines fun and education and features night adventures, bush tucker tracking, rock climbing and much more. If your troops are aged 12 to 14, check out the three-day Bushcraft & Survival Camp.
Your junior adventurers will be in safe hands at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat, where they can choose from a packed schedule of holiday activities.
The Eco Rangers program will have them exploring creeks and streams, feeding birds, racing through rainforest, cooking on a campfire, and you’ll meet many of the native four and six-legged locals.
Now here’s something different. Visit Australia’s largest camel dairy and get up close with these beautiful creatures.
At Summer Land Camels just outside Harrisville you can sign up for the full experience, and go behind the scenes through the dairy and training centre, meet the camels and see how their milk is turned into cheese, gelato and skincare.
During the holidays check out the Arts Festival on April 6 and Little Humpty Children’s Day on April 17.
Join sheep farmer and cheesemaker Carolyn Davidson at Towri Sheep Cheeses for an interactive school holiday workshop on April 20.
Your children will learn how to make their own cheese and they’ll meet and cuddle the resident lambs, sheep and donkeys.
The fun runs from 10am to 3pm and the $90 fee includes morning tea and lunch.
Mums and dads are welcome to stay and enjoy the property.
Head to the Scenic Rim’s beautiful Lake Moogerah for a unique Easter experience – the open-air performance of the Moogerah Passion Play.
This annual event features up to 100 local performers, a Lake Theatre, boats, donkeys and maybe some chooks.
The Passion Play tells the story of Jesus and is non-denominational.
Catch one of four performances on April 13, 14, 19 and 20.
Entry is free and is food available to purchase.
Test your skill on Australia’s largest zipline and high ropes attraction.
