Yes it's that time of the year - again!
Spring School Holidays are upon us and these will be the last for 2013 until the long summer holidays over Christmas and into the New Year.
Keeping the kids occupied and staying within the budget can be a challenge but with the weather warming up there are plenty of FREE outdoor activities in every neighbourhood to entertain all ages!
Nationally, Disney's Planes hits cinemas this week and follows on from the huge success of Disney’s ‘Cars’. It's an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure that tells the story of Dusty, a crop duster with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer - and look out for Rochelle, an Aussie plane with a kangaroo painted on her side!
Watch the trailer here.
There's also exciting news for fans of movies under the stars ... Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas kick-starts the summer season on October 20th at Brisbane’s South Bank and will also visit St Kilda in Melbourne, Sydney’s Bondi Beach and Commonwealth Park Canberra.
