School Holiday Fun

Redcliffe Guide | Dec 01, 2017
School Holiday Fun
There’s a lot to do this summer, so make some plans and give your kids an experience to remember!
Childhood is a time for adventure and experience. There’s a lot you can plan around Redcliffe to keep your youngsters busy, and give you some free time to do the Christmas shopping during the school holidays. Here are some ideas!

Walk Back In Time On Redcliffe’s Digital Heritage Trails

Follow along with a map, audio narration and photos on your smartphone or tablet. Try the Convict Trail, which starts near Redcliffe Jetty; or the Esplanade Walk that follows the waterfront past historical sites. Both are easy walks for the family, and more details can be found at

Got A Musically-Inclined Crew On Your Hands?
