Family activities, events & Easter fun
The April school holidays are almost here and it is time to think about what "fun stuff" there is to do for kids in the Nelson Bay region. Before we get started, however, if you are looking for Easter activities, see the article Easter Events For Kids Around Nelson Bay 2019 and if you are looking for family-friendly venues, see the article Top 40 Things to do For Kids in Nelson Bay. Both articles will keep your kids busy all holidays long!

If you are looking for even more things to do, then check out this list below for events and activities in the April school holidays. You will find free activities, coding workshops, discos, petting zoos, magic shows and much more. Your kids won't have time to tell you that they're bored - they will be too busy asking what you what will be doing next!
