Spring School Holiday Activities That Are Away From The Screen
Looking for spring school holidays activities that aren’t in front of the screen? We don’t blame you. Remote learning and lockdown have meant kids are all Zoomed out and with the arrival of spring, it’s now time to get outside again. Here’s our top picks…
Please note: Social distancing, mask wearing and keeping within your 5km radius is essential. If the below aren’t within 5km of your home, please do not travel to them.
1. Grab a Surf Lesson
Did you know that you’re still able to book in for a private surf lesson during lockdown? You can hit up the Manly Surf School if you live within the 5km area or Let’s Go Surfing in Bondi or Maroubra. Pre-book is essential and can be done via each website.
2. Book in for a Tennis Lesson
Inspire Tennis might have had to cancel their spring school holiday programme but with you can still book a private lesson at one of its three locations, including Manly, Seaforth and Narraweena. It’s $35 per hour and can be booked via the Inspire Tennis website.
3. Ocean Pool Swimming
Sydney is blessed with the number of ocean pools available but our top pick if you’re within the five kilometre radius is the newly reopened Dawn Fraser Baths in Balmain. The baths recently underwent a facelift to the tune of $8million and it’s looking pretty swanky. But if not in Balmain, here’s a full list of the best ocean pools for kids and families in Sydney.
4. Hyper Karting
