Home  -  EventsSpring School Holidays

Spring has sprung in the Orange360 region, and while we remain in lockdown this school holiday period, there’s still plenty to discover in the region.

The weather is great for taking a walk one of our many trails and with less visitors, it’s the perfect recipe for discovering the stunning natural attractions in our region.

Local businesses are also putting together school holiday packs that can help keep the kids entertained at home, from art packs to board games, check out the array of offerings from local businesses below.

As per current NSW Public Order, please remember that all travel is restricted to your own LGA where possible or 5km from your residential address. Remember to wear your mask when visiting businesses, get tested if you have symptoms and stay updated on the latest advice from NSW Health here.
