Holidays in schools means fun, playing all day, travel with friends or families. To kids, the happiest thing to them is ‘no homework’, ‘not to wake up early’ and ‘enjoy fully’.

These holidays differ from schools to schools and states to states. Australia's seasons are at totally opposite times to those countries in the northern hemisphere.

Types of VIC School Holidays

Autumn Holidays (6th April- 22nd April): - When the days get shorter, the temperatures get milder, and the colorful leaves shed from the tree, that’s when you know its autumn. A season, which inspires many to escape and travel once again and go on an autumn holiday.

Take advantage of the rich colors seen in the transition from summer to winter and go for long autumn walks or hiking tours. Devote yourself to regional delicacies and seasonal specialties. You can also visit delightful autumn and wine festivals or escape somewhere south on the beaches or in a holiday house by the sea.

Winter Holidays (29th June- 14th July): - We intend to take winter holidays as an opportunity to take rest, hibernate and be quiet. But there are so many winter traditions around the world that prove this impression entirely wrong. Winter in Australia is the perfect season for exploring the length and breadth of the continent. The cold months are clearly a time of celebrations and parties around the world. The least temperature that you will experience in the coldest regions of Australia during winter is 10 degrees Celsius.

There are a number of reasons to spend your winter holidays in Australia some of which are: Crocodile Cruise, Dolphin watching, watch wildflowers in Perth, Capture the breathtaking valley view, crusade in dessert, experience the ultimate adventure in Ningaloo Reef, greet the penguins on Phillip Island, visit the adorable kangaroos on the Kangaroo Island and many more.

Spring Holidays (21st September- 06th October): - Since Australia is in Southern Hemisphere; spring starts in September and ends in late November, which indicates the arrival of summer. Since the country is big and spring climate varies, it is a good idea to plan your vacation in advance. Many people may want to head south for spring skiing, while beachgoers stay up north to enjoy warmer temperatures.

Summer Holidays (21st December- 28th January): - This is the longest vacation in the whole country; about 5-6 weeks depending upon the states. While Americans celebrate Christmas, with Christmas trees, visits from Santa Claus, and dreams of snowy landscapes, in Australia, Christmas falls in summer where it is popular to go on camping or to a beach over the holiday. Some people of Australia decorate a “Christmas Bush”. It is a native Australian tree with small green leaves and flowers that turn red during summer.
