School holiday care

A number of local organisations run low-cost school holiday programs for children aged 5 to 12. The programs include fun, educational activities and excursions.

The Australian Government can help eligible families with the cost of school holiday care through Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care rebate (CCR) payments.

To find out if you are eligible:

  • visit the Family Assistance website
  • call 13 61 50, Monday to Friday between 8am and 8pm
  • visit a Medicare Office or Centrelink Service Centre
