As the school term starts up once again after the Easter break, it’s hard to imagine that the next school holidays will be upon us again in no time. Many parents are already thinking about out how to keep themselves and their family occupied during the next school holiday break.

Whether you’re looking for a change in climate, some time away from the city or just something a bit different, Crows Nest has got you covered with 7 kid friendly activities to convince you and your family to experience this beautiful region.


1. National Park Adventures 

The Crows Nest Region features a number of large national parks, with Crows Nest National Park and Ravensborne National Park both within driving distance from the town centre. Take the kids for a hike or scenic walk to explore and experience breath-taking views of valleys, gorges and waterfalls and maybe even spot some local wildlife. Don’t forget to pack a picnic lunch with some local Crows Nest Soft Drinks for a sweet treat.


2. Drone Pilot Heaven 

With Drones gaining in popularity, flying them for the first time can be a bit nerve wracking. The Crows Nest Tourist Park features large open fields perfect for the beginner to master drone flying in relative safety. The Park allows for drone users to fly in their park according to CASA regulations. Whether you’re a first time drone user or an experienced flyer, the park is the ideal space to perfect your skills.


3. Spread Out! 

While city living is often synonymous with crowds and a lack of decent sized recreational areas, the Crows Nest Tourist Park allows families to really stretch their legs and enjoy some serious space. Ride your bicycle around the park or down to the Crows Nest Town Centre. Play a game of cricket, spread out and play a game of frisbee! The Crows Nest Tourist Park is also pet friendly, meaning Fido the dog can come and enjoy the space too.


4. Toast Marshmallows around the campfire 

What would a family trip away be without this epic campfire  treat.  Give kids the experience of  toasting their own marshmallows while you sit back and relax.


5. Make a splash. 

The Crows Nest Region features a large number of dams, creeks and swimming holes where boating, fishing and swimming are permitted. Take your family to visit nearby Cressbrook Dam, Lake Perseverance or Bottlebrush Pool.


6. Street Art Walks 

Just 30 a minute drive from Crows Nest is Toowoomba, home to the First Coat Street Art Gallery. A stroll down a few of the side streets and alley ways will reveal a collection of over 70 large murals adorning the outside of Toowoomba’s older buildings. You will love the fun and colourful murals painted by local and international artists. Your kids won’t even realise that they’re exercising!


7. Everything Else 

Enjoy local family friendly cafes, chocolate shops, arcades and bowling alleys in surrounding towns and villages. It’s a perfect excuse to explore the local gems of the area and keep both children (and adults) entertained.
