Story by CBR Canberra

Oh, the envy! Imagine mingling with your favourite animals, climbing and crawling through a range of obstacle courses, setting sail on the water, programming and designing a computer game, and even training next to the country’s most elite athletes.

Canberra’s kids holiday programs will have you searching for the fountain of youth, and also questioning how all these activities are within 20 minutes of one another.



National Zoo and Aquarium – Yarralumla

A unique experience for all the primary school animal lovers on break. Your kids will get up close and personal with the animals, playing games, making toys, and learning a whole lot along the way.
