Finding school holiday activities is to be easier than ever with a new online interactive map of school holiday programs and activities for families in Regional NSW.

Launched by Service NSW the Spring Holiday Break Map has been welcomed by the Minister for Regional Youth, Ben Franklin who said the Map featured virtual reality tournaments, Lego animation workshops and horse-riding clinics.

“With more than 100 free or discounted programs covering everything from space education to sports coaching clinics, cooking classes and rock climbing, there’s enough activities to build an entire itinerary for the school holidays,” Mr Franklin said.

He said the Office for Regional Youth’s Holiday Break program provided young people with opportunities to connect, socialise, and have fun during the school holidays by delivering a range of free and subsidised activities across regional NSW.

“The Holiday Break Program provides a range of exciting activities that give young people in the regions opportunities to try new things,” he said.

“We’ve made sure the funded programs cover a broad range of interests to provide social and recreational outlets to help regional youth become more involved in their local communities.”

Mr Franklin said Create NSW was delivering a range of artistic activities, including its popular song-writing program SongMakers.

Meanwhile, he said the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) was partnering with regional galleries to offer some unique workshops and activities.
