New Booking System

Dear Customers,
We have moved to a new bookings system for our School Holiday Programs.

To make things easier on registration day you can register your account now. This will save you time on the day. Your personal details and children’s details will auto fill once you Log In. 

If you have any issues, please contact us at

*With the new system we will be very strict on the cancellation policy, and you will lose your space if you continually fail to show for the programs you have booked. 

We have made a video to help you get started on the new system.

  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the activity start time to register your child(ren).
  • We will may accept enrolments on the day. If your child would like to bring friends, please ensure they are enrolled before the day.
  • Due to popularity all of our activities are likely to have a waitlist. If you cannot make an activity you must cancel via Bookable 24 hours before the day of the activity. 
  • Parents or carers are expected to stay for the duration of the activity.
  • Please do not bring food that contains or has traces of peanuts or eggs as other children may have allergies. 
  • If your child has any special requirements, please make this known during the registration process as well as to the council staff member present on the day of the activity prior to its commencement (we may need more staff or other equipment).
  • Council will communicate any cancellation of activities via email to the contact details you provide during the registration process. We are looking at getting a text service to help get the message out there quicker.
