School holidays on a budget

Look no further for boredom busting holiday activities on the cheap.

Event and BCC Cinemas

Christmas school holidays are when all the best movies come out and this year will be no exception. See The Crimes of Grindelwald, Robin Hood and The Nutcracker using pocket change with Free2Go’s Event Cinemas ticket offer.

Beaches

Summer is here and what better way to spend your break than visiting some of Queensland’s best beaches. Head north and chill out at Caloundra’s Kings and Dicky beaches, then head to Moffat for an acai bowl to beat the heat. Down south is the bustling Surfers paradise and the more mellow Main Beach on the Gold Coast. If you’re chasing somewhere closer to home, jump on a barge at Cleveland and visit Stradbroke Island’s Cylinder Beach.

Theme parks

Spending your school holidays at Dreamworld, Aussie World and Australia Zoo doesn’t have to be expensive. Free2Go members receive great discounts at Queensland theme parks to help you beat the boredom this summer.

Walking trails

Those who want to enjoy the great outdoors (and score the perfect Insta picnic) can hike the trails at Tamborine National Park, Kondalilla Falls and Springbrook National Park, all for free. Save some cash on the drive there with Free2Go’s Puma fuel discount.

South Bank

Brisbane’s cultural hub has everything to take your school holidays from average to amazing. Grab some ice-cream and dip your feet in one of the many wading pools or have a wander through the Rainforest Walk. Enjoy Brisbane from a new perspective with 10% off the Wheel of Brisbane, exclusive to Free2Go members. The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) and the Queensland Museum are also a short walk from South Bank.

Op shopping

For those who need a bit of retail therapy to unwind from the school year, op shopping is great way to save money and update your wardrobe. Visit the Paddington, West End and Woolloongabba areas to find some perfect pre-loved threads for your next party.
