NHM's Top Ten Ways to Tire the Kids - AKA school holiday activities

For some of us they’re here already! Yep, day one and I’m off to see The Grinch at the movies. Slightly concerning that I’m already using up an activity on the first day. Here is my list of trusted activities that will help make the holidays fly by!


  • Ralph Break the Internet

  • How to Train your Dragon: The Hidden World

  • Storm Boy

Physical Fun:

  • Inflatable World

  • Megamania or Chipmunks

  • Flip Out

  • Revolution

  • Ten Pin Bowling

  • Ice Skating

  • Tree Tops

  • Holy Moly putt putt golf

  • Any of the awesome pools and many have cool inflatables up over the holidays


  • Hunter Valley Zoo

  • Oakvale Farm

  • Blackbutt

  • Hunter Wetlands Centre

There are plenty of interactive things on at The Museum and each of the libraries and galleries. I also love exploring our bushland but pack the mozzie repellant!

Whatever you end up doing, we hope you have a fun, happy and safe holidays with the kids!
