The September school holidays (NSW 24 Sept – 9 Oct, QLD 17 Sep – 3 Oct) are a popular time to visit Byron. The weather is warming up, both holiday periods catch the Byron Bay Markets and the Bangalow Markets, plus its still whale spotting season.

Here are a few school holiday activities to consider, and be sure to browse our Byron Bay accommodation guide for a family-friendly place to stay.


Circus Arts Byron Bay is the place to be during school holidays! Our holiday programs offer a comprehensive timetable of activities during both the QLD and NSW school holidays.

Circus Arts Byron Bay boasts a beautiful indoor venue with an incredible variety of apparatus to learn on. We pack the programs with fun circus activities including acrobatics and a swing on the high flying trapeze (for those who dare). We even have a cafe on site and an optional add-on lunchbox so everything is taken care of.

At the beginning of each workshop we take the children on an educational and fun tour of The Farm. We educate them about our cows, pigs, bees, chickens, flower crops, herb garden, orchard and veggie crops. We discuss concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, pollination, organic farming, healthy soil and composting and other ethical farming practices. The children get up close and personal with our pet chickens and when available we taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs.

CHICKENS WORKSHOP – September 23 | 1.00pm – 4.00pm
