School holiday activities

Council compiles a two week school holiday program each September. 

Gladstone Region Libraries and the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum regularly host school holiday activities for youths and families.

If your organisation is hosting events or activities for youths during school holidays, we're happy to assist with promoting the event. To arrange, please contact Council's Youth Development team located at the Community Advisory Service.
