First several links go to events that are currently unavailable, everything else just says “empty your wallet here please”. Is there nothing kids can do for free these days? Apart from going for a walk in the park or playing sports on an oval, there is absolutely nothing for children to do in Canberra that doesn’t cost their Mum ‘n Dad at least $5-$20 per hour, becoming very expensive if you have say 3 children and add transport and parking into the mix. Perhaps a school holiday casual work for teens program would be of more benefit, keeping the kids out of your hair for the day, teaching them valuable life skills and actually making money instead of using it all up?
