Holiday Program

Our Holiday Program engages children in a holistic experience of fresh food production as children explore Pialligo Estate by going on a farm tour in buggies driven by the Estate’s Market Gardener. Children will be given the opportunity to learn about the cycle of planting, harvesting and using fresh produce in cooking.

Our theme for the Spring Holidays (September/October) is ‘A Taste of the World’. Dishes were suggested by children who attended our Winter program.

Price: $99 per day
