April School Holidays in Darwin & Surrounds


With the end of the Wet Season, April School holidays are a great time to get out and about and visit somewhere new in Darwin and surrounds. Whether it's visiting a new park, riding bikes, keeping cool at a local pool, cooking together or taking advantage of a cheap movie, our directories will give you lots of inspiration. We also have heaps of free/low cost ideas to keep the kids entertained plus a School Holiday Planner you can print and make sure you don't miss any of the fun - don't forget to schedule some 'home days' too! 

Of course it is also the time when lots of classes take enrolments for Term 4, so if there is something
you are thinking of getting your kids to try, now is the time to make enquiries. We have lots of groups
and classes listed on our &
directories and with more added each week, we hope you can find what you are looking for.
From the Team at What's On 4, we wish you and your family a safe and happy School Holidays!
