School Holidays

​The City of Bunbury has a range of school holiday programs catering to all age groups - from five years old up to 17 years of age - and to all interests.

We have programs at the South West Sports Centre, Bunbury Regional Art Galleries, Libraries and Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre. We also run our Unleashed school holiday program which takes place in various locations.




Tuesday 24 April

Drop off: 8.30am @ Bicentennial Square

Pick up: 4.30pm @ Bicentennial Square

The kids will be ‘stranded’ on an Island and have to use their orienteering and navigational skills to locate components and build a raft to get to safety. They will then head down river on the newly built raft to the mainland where they have lunch followed by an array of games and team building activities.



Thursday 26 April

Drop off: 8.30am @ Bunbury Back Beach

Pick up: 4.30pm @ Bunbury Skate Park (Cobblestone)

This will be a day of educational, healthy and interactive activities introducing people to the sport of Skateboarding which they can continue for years to come. The boards will be old school cruisers (with COB and Roadwise stickers) suitable for both commuting and being used at skate parks, this way we feel we will also be giving back to the community by letting participants keep the boards whilst promoting and active and healthy lifestyles.


Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre

Come in to the Museum this school holidays and learn about the Vikings. Create and decorate some Viking helmets and jewelry.

Thursday 26 April - 10am to 12pm

You can hang out with the fluffy and scaly creatures who will be visiting from West Oz Wildlife, make your own colourful kaleidoscopes, learn how to create your own stop motion masterpiece, learn about the life cycle of a chicken whilst watching them hatch or settle in for a movie.
