Active Holidays

Active Holidays is held over the school holiday period for 7-12-year-old children. We make ‘healthy’ shine!


Active Holidays incorporates physical activity, sustainable living and healthy eating through engaging school holiday activities including cooking, surfing, gardening, bike riding, and more!

Our motto: We make ‘healthy’ shine!

  • We create engaging and inspiring holiday activities from key evidence-based health promotion topics.
  • We break down barriers and make health accessible to everyone by providing free or subsidised workshops.
  • We encourage independent thinking, exploring, and creating.
  • We support the development of life long healthy habits and important life skills.

Guided by Healthy Cities staff, volunteers and service providers, Active Holidays runs intermittently over school holidays periods in various locations across the Illawarra. Keep up to date by liking our facebook page for further location announcements.
