Can you believe it's already half the year gone already. Holidays again for school kids, some last week already as the saying goes the more you pay the less you go. So, we had plans of coming to Melbourne 1st week of holidays and been such a hard decision to make whether to risk going or not, sadly the risk outweighed going so enjoying all the fun to be had in Noosa and surrounds these holidays. Grateful that our Qld government has made the call slightly earlier than expected and has opened the Victorian borders again. Sadly, now Greater Sydney is locked out again from Queensland. When will this end so hard on everyone and everyone just wanting to book a holiday in Australia let alone when we will be able to explore other countries again. If you are lucky to come holiday here in Noosa and surrounds or get to live here then this is the list for you all the things to do these winter holidays.
Shopping Centre Activities
Love a good shopping centre entertainment, always free and just long enough to make it worthwhile and then shopping afterwards.
Magic Chef Workshops
29th June – 3rd July
Magician Nickleby will be teaching your kids how to be a magic chef, the theme is around food. Your child will receive their very own chef hat, apron and magic lunch box. They will be entertained for the rest of the holidays trying out all their new tricks. The sessions are 40 minutes long between 10am – 1pm daily. Bonus parents you get a voucher for a hot beverage. Bookings are essential.
Esports Dance Workshops
6th – 10h July
If your child is 5+ years and loves to bust a move then this activity is for them. Presented by STEM Punks in their Esports Dance workshops. It goes fir 45 minutes between 10am – 2pm daily. At the end you receive a free online course (valued at $49) so those dance moves can continue at home. Once again parents will get a free hot beverage voucher. Bookings are essential.
Super Saver Fun Pass
Offer now until 27th June
So, this super saver fun pass has been running since January and is on its final days to buy and use. So, it’s $37per adult massive saving of $42. What does this get you I hear? Well Movie tickets, 30 minute time play on red and yellow swipers (plus more), 1 adult meal from the fun pass menu, all day carparking. Kids are just $32 saving of $20, instead of parking gets them 1 kids gelato and kids’ meal otherwise the same. Better still get the Mega pass at $50 adult and get to do the Next Level High Ropes Single Circuit Course. Amazing deal full of entertainment and food to keep you going. I took my kids last week for pre-holiday fun to see new “Spirit” movie rated it so high they want to see it again at the cinema. Sadly, just found out new “Minions” movie and what all the merchandise is out for and Happy Meals at McDonalds. Sadly, they have delayed the movie launch by a year.
