Dive into 2021 with City’s Summer School Holiday program

Say farewell to 2020, and dive into 2021 with the City of Newcastle’s Summer School Holiday program.

Designed for families to have fun together, the program features activities that children of all ages can enjoy at the City’s signature attractions including Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Art Gallery, Newcastle Library, Civic Theatre, Fort Scratchley, parks, pools, beaches and more.

Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said 2021 was time for families to reset and start the year with some fun together these school holidays, by celebrating everything that makes Newcastle unique.

“Families don’t need to travel far to enjoy the wonders of their own backyard and celebrate everything that makes Newcastle so unique, this school holiday period,” Cr Nelmes said.

“With a range of free and bookable options at our cultural facilities, there’s no limit to the amount of fun families can have this summer in Newcastle.

“Whether it’s cooling off at one of the City’s local pools or iconic beaches, or escaping the heat to join in fun events and activities at our cultural facilities, families are spoilt for choice for ways to enjoy summer in our beautiful city.

“Kids and teens will relish the opportunity to channel their inner rockstar at Newcastle Art Gallery in response to works of art on display in the summer exhibition WE CAN BE HEROES: a backstage pass.

“Over at Newcastle Museum, discover where art meets science in a unique Cyanotype workshop exploring the world’s first photographic process.

“Get hands on with Newcastle Libraries and enjoy the vast range of activities and workshops on offer, from digital displays to virtual reality demonstrations and beyond, or cool off in air-conditioned comfort at Civic Cinema whilst enjoying movies for all ages on the big screen.

“There are also plenty of open-air options to get the kids off screens and devices and out into the fresh air. Explore Blackbutt Reserve and feed the friendly critters or enjoy a picnic with a view and get a historical fix at Fort Scratchley.”
