Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said that we’re pleased to be offering our school holiday programs once again.

“Wollongong City Libraries, Wollongong Youth Services and Wollongong Art Gallery have been running activities for many school holidays now, and they continue to be popular across our city,” Cr Bradbery said.

“We’re always looking for new and exciting events for our community to enjoy, no matter what the weather. This spring there’s events like a free BBQ down at Dapto Skate Park and activities such as making a kaleidoscope at Corrimal Library. There’s plenty left to get involved in, so make sure you check out what’s on offer.”
