Your C&G Guide to the Spring School Holidays - Part 2

At C&G, we love providing you with tips and ideas to make the most of our beloved Bayside, and these school holidays are no exception! Last week we rounded up the best of the best for celebrating week one of the school holidays (read it here), and now to present – the best of week two! Covering September 26 to October 3, these outings are bound to put a smile on your dial. Read on.

Sandy Mini Golf

Head to Sandringham for a day out at Sandy Mini Golf, just 20km from the CBD. Families of up to six people can play at once. The golf course features 18 holes and is appropriate for all ages and skill levels, and there’s a café, Golf Academy and Driving Range. Learn more here.

Build a Panda at Gasworks 

Gasworks Arts Park in Albert Park is a family friendly arts precinct with a fantastic program of kids’ holiday activities. Our pick is the bear-building activity on Tuesday, September 27 – where kids can create pandas and bears out of clay. Once formed, the bears can be decorated and children can take home their creation to show off to their friends and family, or take to show-and-tell once back at school. Book here.

Tree Surfing at the Enchanted Playground

Put on some good boots and enjoy a hearty breakfast before taking the scenic route to the Mornington Peninsula’s Arthurs Seat. At The Enchanted Playground, hedge mazes, artistic installations, beautiful bush land and tree surfing activities offer an exhilarating day of fun for the whole family! Even kids under 135cm tall are accommodated for, with the Nipper’s Course providing a safe adventure for the young ones. For lunch time treats, the café and lollyshop are open every day.

Kids Learn to Sail

The Black Rock Yacht Club has launched their Spring holiday program, with games-based training to help kids aged 7-12 build their confidence around the water by learning to sail. Sessions run from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and take place at Half Moon Bay beach in Black Rock. Learn more here

Comic Chaos at The Kids Club

Kicking off on September 27, artist Bernard Caleo will host five sessions of ‘Comic Chaos’ at The Kids Club as Part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Bernard will take kids’ drawings, ideas and inspirations and transform them into one giant comic book! It’s free to participate, and you can grab more details here.
