If you’re a parent based in NSW, there’s a good chance that you’re juggling lockdown in the rain, AND to top it off, it’s the school holidays. Pulling your hair out? Fear not, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo are here to help! Launching on Wednesday 30th June, the Wild Holiday Hub is the ultimate online destination for parents looking for fun and educational activities to keep the kids entertained during these winter school holidays.
The Wild Holiday Hub offers a range of activities that have been expertly curated by Merlin Entertainments’ Curatorial and Education teams to appeal to the following three age categories:
