Could your kid win an oscar?
You never know where an AFTRS course may lead, and even if your child doesn’t enter the industry, they’ll stretch their creativity, learn valuable skills and have loads of fun at one of AFTRS school holiday courses. Topics cover a range of interests and abilities including filmmaking, digital animation, movie make-up, screen music, and HSC video skills. Courses are filling fast.
During the April school holidays you can enjoy delicious barbecue everyday from 12pm at Black Bear BBQ. This open yard style restaurant makes it a great place to sit and chill in the sun while you fuel up on their amazing slow cooked ribs, brisket, chicken buffalo wings, potato jackets or other tasty treats, surrounded by aromatic wood smoke, in a relaxed vibe.
Bring your kids to Strike Bowling during the Easter school holidays and for just $25 they can bowl their little hearts out and laser tag like balls of lightening until the cows come home or 5pm, whichever comes first. Meanwhile, you can take a stroll in the open air, shop a bit, enjoy a nice lunch, have a drink or coffee, and then pick up your happily exhausted child.
Fresh is free every day!
Have lunch or dinner at Fratelli Fresh and they’ll feed your kids for free – all day, every day. The Mediterranean inspired menu for grown ups with a simplified version for kids includes pasta, fish fingers and spaghetti bolognese! It’s a great place for a family outing, especially on Sundays between 12pm and 3pm when adults can enjoy a glass of wine while the kids enjoy free face painting.
There are loads of other entertainment, dining and shopping options. Take a look here.
