April School Break: 9 Auckland Activities To Keep Children Busy

School break is upon us, and that means it's time to unleash the family fun extravaganza. Auckland Council's got you covered with a smorgasbord of activities, whether you're in for a quick thrill or a marathon of fun to keep the kiddos entertained.

Auckland Council's School Holiday Programme

Sign up your children, aged 5 to 13, for an action-packed school holiday extravaganza. Sit back, relax, and know they're in for a wild ride of team sports, cooking escapades, and artsy adventures. Plus, the organisers will whisk them off to awesome Auckland hotspots like Rainbow's End and Butterfly Creek!



Booking is the name of the game. Swing by aucklandleisure.co.nz for all the deets.

Step Back in Time

Wanna journey through the fashion epochs of Aotearoa? Head to the Auckland Central City Library and immerse yourself in "That’s So Last Century: What We Wore 1950s-90s". It's like a time machine for fashionistas, with bonus points for sustainable style education.

Explore the Great Outdoors

Let's get wild, Auckland! With a gazillion parks at our disposal, it's time to unleash the outdoor adventurer in your kiddos. Partnering up with Craftlab NZ and the Auckland Council Parks Team, we've got an epic nature-based day programme on hand that'll have young explorers building confidence, honing bushcraft skills, and generally becoming nature ninjas. Booking's a breeze via Eventbrite.

And for the ultimate outdoor escapade, check out Adventure Into Nature, a free two-day crash course in outdoor survival and leadership skills at Tōtara Park. Your kids will emerge as woodland warriors, ready to take on any parkland challenge. Booking? Right this way.

Local Attractions Galore

Ready for some wild encounters? Swing by Auckland Zoo to learn about our unique wildlife, or dive into the weird and wonderful world of nature at Auckland War Memorial Museum. And don't miss the maritime magic at New Zealand Maritime Museum! It's all about friendship, adventure, and earning your sailor stripes.


Mark your calendars for the ultimate CultureFest at Mount Roskill War Memorial Park. With food, music, dance, and a whole lot of vibe, it's a celebration of diversity that'll blow your socks off!

For Kids Big and Small
