Winter holidays are a great chance to check out an indoor playcentre, book in for a school holiday program, check out a movie, see a show, visit the museum or get crafty at home.

Spring School Holidays: Saturday 30 September, 2017 Sunday 15 October, 2017

Spring has sprung and we love this time of year. Why not take a trip up to Hahndorf and say hello to the baby animals, or plan a camping trip?
