At schoolholidays.com.au, our exciting story began with two families. Both were trying to solve a common challenge of keeping their children engaged during school holidays while juggling work and other commitments.
Alex and Elena, our passionate founders and their families, came up with the idea out of personal need.
Alex and his wife, both juggling jobs and other commitments, found it challenging to plan engaging activities for their young kids during the school holidays.
Similarly, Elena and her family, after immigrating to Australia in 2017, often felt overwhelmed searching the web for enriching activities after school, on weekends and especially during school holidays.
The idea was simple:
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a one-stop online space where busy parents can discover heaps of kids' activities and family-friendly events?
In a fortunate twist of fate, these families crossed paths in 2018. Recognising their shared vision, they decided to team up to create schoolholidays.com.au.
Since 2018, our team has been working hard, handpicking the best school holiday activities, programs, events, and fun things to do for families. We’re dedicated to making sure every family finds something to meet their interests and needs.
