April School Holidays Adventure Festival
Posted on Tuesday, 15th of March 2016
Taking the kids on a holiday is usually fun but it always takes a lot of planning to work out where to go and what you are going to do when you get there. Thredbo is one step ahead for the April School Holidays. With the April School Holidays Adventure Festival you won’t really need to plan much at all. Just pack the car with clothes for being busy outside, don’t forget the swimmers and some warm gear (we are in the mountains you know) and then head to Thredbo and join the party.
The School Holiday Adventure Festival is on every school holidays and the activities change to suit the time of year. April is all about being outside and busy because Autumn in the mountains is usually perfect weather of outdoor action. The program for the festival has activities on every day from April 9 to 17 and many of them are free. There are outdoor games, treasure hunts, kids art classes and ceramics classes, movie nights, trampolining and Slack Lining (rope walking) workshops, all free and on every day.
For the tweens and grown ups there are also guided rides on the Thredbo Valley Trail with 15km of flowing mountain bike trail down the Thredbo Valley and a shuttle bus back. Of course you have all of the usual Thredbo Activities with the Chairlift to the top of the mountain and the network of walking tracks back to the village and out to Mt Kosciuszko. The Thredbo Leisure Centre is also open with the heated pool, water slide, mission inflatable obstacle course, climbing wall, squash court, table tennis, basketball, indoor soccer, trampolines and a full gym. There is the also the Thredbo Bobsled for a rush down the mountain.
This summer Thredbo has done a full make over of the Village Green area. There are new tennis courts at the southern end , the kids playground is getting an upgrade and while the bicycle pump track is still there it has been enlarged and moved over to make room for a new skatepark. The Village Green is now action central for the kids so make sure to bring the bikes/scooters and skateboards.
