Escape the school holiday madness for some Roleystone peace
Get the kids out of the house and up the beautiful Brookton Highway for lots of fun filled activities in Roleystone:.

The gorgeous Araluen Botanic Park is hosting some school holiday fun during October.

From the 4th to the 11th children aged three to fourteen years can visit the beautiful grounds for some cool activities and "busy work".

There's the Discovery Trails for the avid explorer from 10am to 11:30am daily.

There will be an opportunity to get arty and creative later in the afternoon with clay modelling and plenty of crafts on offer.

For $3 per child, the school holiday activities begin at 10am and wrap up at 2pm so there's heaps to do with parents/carers costing only $4 to join in the fun too.

Don't forget there is lots to see and do at Araluen and if you're peckish why not pack some food as both electric and wood-fired BBQ's (between April and November) are available for whipping up some snaggers or juicy steaks.

Otherwise visit the Chalet Healy Tearoom for lunch or morning and afternoon teas from 10am to 4pm and maybe afterwards take a ride on the Araluen Train.

Roleystone Theatre:

While you have made the trek up to Roleystone, why not pop into the Roleystone Theatre for some theatrical entertainment for the kids.

Storytime in the Hills is on Monday 1st, Wednesday 3rd and Friday 5th of October at 11:00am and 2:00pm.

There will be two short plays performed that have been written for children aged three years and up.

Adults and children under three are free and are invited to come along and enjoy the entertainment as well as.

Children's tickets are $10 and that includes a drink and a snack during intermission.
