Make the most of the April school holidays around Lake Mac

Lake Macquarie’s Museum of Art and Culture (MAC) will become a hive of activity during the upcoming April school holidays playing host to a huge range of events.

Major art exhibitions, creative workshops and virtual reality tours are just some of the diverse range of activities that organisers hope will help local kids to learn, grow and connect during the Easter break.

“These holidays will bring fun, social and inviting opportunities for children to enjoy outside of their usual school environment,” Arts, Culture and Tourism Manager Jacqui Hemsley said.

“One of our unique events is a virtual reality program where viewers can see our region 250 years ago when the Awabakal people were the sole inhabitants.”

There’s also a workshop that will help skaters transform their boards into their very own unique artworks.

Sound studio tutorials will also be held at Warners Bay Theatre’s newly fit-out music studio, giving budding artists the chance to capture their sound and the theatre will also host Low Tide, a live music event, on Saturday 9 April that will showcase local talent during Youth Week 2022, which begins on Monday 4 April.

The April school holidays run from Monday 11 April to Friday 22 April but Lake Macquarie City Council’s holiday program kicks off on Saturday 9 April. For more information visit
