Yarra Ranges Council, Eastern Regional Libraries, Milwarra Primary School, ADRA and Inspiro have teamed up to provide several free, fun-filled activities to keep the boredom at bay for children these winter school holidays.

The winter activates include meeting Australian animals and critters up close, STEM activities and even the art of chocolate making. Yum!

The winter program runs until 10 July so be quick. All the event details can be found at: https://www.yarraranges.vic.gov.au/Lists/Events/Youth-Holiday-Program-Winter-2019

Mail photographer Rob Carew has already been out capturing some of the fun and frivolous activities on offer.
