This summer, Canberra has a great range of engaging and fun activities that all kids will enjoy. If you’re staying home with the kids during the school holidays, these are a must.

Sunset Cinema

Get your snacks together, snuggle in a beanbag chair and watch the summer sun set before watching an outdoor film at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Sunset Cinema is back for another binge worthy season of films, old and new. Catch new blockbusters such as Spiderman: No Way Home, Jungle Cruise and Enchanto or classics such as The Lion King. As usual, providing the perfect movie snacks there will be burgers, ribs and shakes from Boss Burger and classic movie snacks from the Snack Bar.

Canberra City Farm

Take the kids to Canberra City Farm and see the work that goes into the harvest, and how seeds can become feed. Take a farm tour with friendly owners of the farm, and let the kids get down and dirty with soiling and gardening.

Canberra Glassworks

Learn and create masterpieces using glass at one of Canberra Glassworks’ school holiday workshops. Offering a range of hands-on experiences in January, kids can create their own glass tile, learn to fuse glass or enter in the kids design competition.  


Let the kids cool off this summer and learn to stand up paddle board on Lake Burley Griffin, with SUP CBR on Sundays. Paddle around and get to know the lake in a group lesson of up to eight or go one on one. This is the perfect summer activity and a wonderful way to utilise the lake

SUNY Cereal Bar

Giving the old breakfast classic some love, SUNY Cereal Bar is making the cereal of every kids dreams. With a menu filled of international and Australian brands, think Captain Crunch, Lucky Charms and Cookie Crisp paired with milk or soft serve of your choice.

Powerkart Raceway

Offering an exciting range of fun activities for kids, Powerkart Raceway will keep them occupied all day if that’s what you’re after. Test out their synthetic ice-skating rink, score a hole in one in their glow in the dark jungle golf or race your friends around the power kart track.
