July 6, 2015 - 2 min read

So you need some ideas to tire out those children? Not to worry, we’ve made an easy-to-follow guide on the last week of the school holidays, as well as some great places to stop in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have you covered!

Are you looking for a more relaxing day to bond with the kidlets? We’ve found some awesome activities that don’t require too much effort.

If you’re looking to just hang out with the kids in some fresh air, we recommend heading over to Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park, where you can be as docile as the koalas and see some awesome wildlife too! If that’s not cutting it with the youngens, maybe a camel ride along Lighthouse Beach will? Yes, you read correctly, with Port Macquarie Camel Safaris, you and the kids can go for a soothing camel ride, which has got to impress those little tykes! If you want something that requires very minimal effort, you could always go for a coastal walk or enjoy some sunset gazing.

If you’re after something that requires your children to burn all that excess energy, try these fun-filled activities.

One of the best things about Port Macquarie is its varied landscape—from beaches to rainforest, you can experience it all in one day. Why not head out to the rainforest for an easy hike coupled with beautiful views? There’s always bike and skate parks where the kids can burn all their energy for free! If you’re not opposed to spending a bit of money these holidays, you could also head to Jumbo’s Playland. This way all you have to do is sit back, relax and watch the troublemakers enjoy themselves!

To keep the kids full throughout the day, head to these Port Macquarie restaurants and cafes.

Can’t wait for the school holidays to end? Why not plan a day of relaxation in preparation for next week!
