Ten events for youth on school holidays
A diverse range of indoor and outdoor activities will be available to youth in the June-July school holidays.
Gladstone Regional Council community services spokesperson Cr Maxine Brushe said Council's Youth Development team was proud to support the 2015 community school holiday program, developed in partnership with local business and organisations across the region.
"The holiday events provide youth who are staying in the Gladstone Region with plenty of enjoyable ways to ensure their two-week break is enjoyable.
"Participants have the opportunity to refresh from studies, broaden their experiences and make new friends who have similar interests."
