April School Holidays Adventure Festival
Posted on Wednesday, 19th of February 2020
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 11 to 25 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, rockclimbing and many more.
For the tweens and grown ups there are also guided rides on the Thredbo Valley Trail with 19km of flowing mountain bike trail down the Thredbo Valley to Lake Crackenback, and a shuttle bus back. If you are more experienced you can do this ride yourself and still take advantage of the shuttle or for the stronger riders there is the full TVT ride from Thredbo all the way to Jindabyne. There is no free shuttle back from Jindabyne but if you don’t have a pit crew you can book a shuttle with one of several local operators,
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.
The Thredbo Village Green is action centrail for the kids with the Pump Track for those kids on bikes who just love to roll, along with the skate park for the shredders, the playground and trampolines to burn the calories too.
