The school holidays are upon us and given the lifting of COVID restrictions, now is the perfect time to get out and about.

Whether you are heading off on a family bushwalking adventure, looking forward to kayaking on Oberon Dam with friends, or just hoping to relax indoors with the kids, there is something on offer for everyone in the Oberon region.

The skate park will no doubt be a popular place with plenty of locals ripping out their best moves on their bikes, skateboards, skates and scooters.

For families looking for some indoors fun, Oberon Council and the Oberon Library have a great program on offer with a strong focus on craft and creative activities.

The always-popular Lego Workshops will be back, allowing kids to build some inspiring creations and a Book Art class will see people of all ages create artworks, gifts and decorations from old books. There will also be a special craft day on April 15 with an Anzac Day theme where participants can enjoy making poppies and wreaths ahead of Anzac Day celebrations.

Of special interest these holidays will be the Waste 2 Art workshops hosted by sculptor and blacksmith, Anthony Fitzgerald. Participants are invited to bring clean, washed aluminum cans and learn how to create two and three dimensional artworks.

For all activities at the Oberon Library, numbers are limited due to COVID regulations, so bookings are essential, and all children under six years of age must be accompanied by an adult. For more information visit www.oberon.nsw.gov.au.
