With school holidays around the corner, Sunshine Coast Council has plenty on offer for a fun-filled break for the whole family.

On Tuesday, September 19, the Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings to life the Diary of Wombat at the Lake Kawana Community Centre.

Kids of all ages will be amused by this comedic production about Australia’s naughtiest wombat.

Tickets are $20 and bookings can be made online at scvenuesandevents.com.au.

Caloundra Regional Gallery presents some free seriously fruity fun for kids from September 19-21. Led by 2017 Sunshine Coast Art Prize finalist Samuel Condon, kids of all ages will be inspired by Samuel’s Pineapple artwork.

There will be two session times per day and no bookings are required. For more information visit gallery.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/kids/holiday-activities.

Council will also host free cycling workshops on Tuesday, September 19, Thursday, September 21, and Tuesday, September 26 to help build your child’s confidence on two wheels.

Learn some tips and tricks to get your little one onto a bike or, for your child already on two wheels, step it up with some bike handling, pathway etiquette and road safety awareness lessons.

Children will have the opportunity to learn about building sandcastles like the professionals with workshops on Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm.
