School Holiday Activities for Teens

It can be difficult for teenagers to find places to go and things to do during the holidays- everything seems to be either aimed at children, or restricted to those over eighteen. Here are a few ways for a teen to keep entertained during the September school holidays.

Go to an underage club night
For a taste of clubbing without the alcohol (although that might not stop some teens from pre-drinking), the underage scene has plenty to offer these holidays. ZOO Underage at Chaser's Nightclub is running twice during the term break, on 28 September and 5 October; or catch Lipstick Underage at the Glacier Bar on the 28th of September.

Beach it
Take advantage of the warm spring weather and go to one of Melbourne's beaches. Sun, sand and ice-cream appeal to all ages.

Go to an all-you-can-eat
Growing teenagers need to eat plenty but often don't have much money (working as a junior in the fast food industry doesn't pay very well). While going to an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord may bring family meals to mind, imagine the fun that a hungry group of friends would have at somewhere like Foodstar, where it costs about $15 per person to stuff yourself with delicious food.

Have a movie night in
For some low-key fun, invite some friends over, make some popcorn and sit yourselves in front of the TV. A warning though, it could be difficult to get everyone to agree on what films to watch!
