Winter School Holidays

Travel Lakeside to Gembrook and enjoy FREE kids activities these school holidays!


Families choosing to travel Lakeside to Gembrook these school holidays can take part in plenty of FREE child-friendly activities. Kids of all ages can enjoy activities including:

  • colouring in
  • story time
  • board games
  • photo opportunities


By parking at Lakeside Station, you'll start your day off hassle-free! Emerald Lake Park has plenty of car park for visitors, and with only a small all-day parking fee, it looks like you're already on the right track! We recommend arriving at the station around midday to allow time for parking, photo opportunities and enjoy the park before boarding the train at 12:20 pm.

In Gembrook, as the kids take part in all of the child-friendly activities, adults can take a break in front of the fireplace, whilst everyone is able to enjoy yummy food and warm drinks during your stopover.

Also, all children who enter the colouring-in competition will go in the draw to win one of three family passes to the next Day out with ThomasTM event held this Spring!
