  • Family
    Parents Only

They happen four times a year. Every year. So why are we always blindsided by the abrupt arrival of the Qld school holidays? The school term seems to drag on indefinitely for students, but fly by too quickly for parents who have to face the holiday juggle yet again.

Here's a start! Get these Qld school holiday and term dates in the diary and get organised this year. You can even add some inspo for a family adventure in your own backyard.

Please note: these Qld school holiday dates are for Queensland public schools. Private and independent schools generally base their terms and holidays around these dates, but they may differ slightly.
