School holiday time is precious and this weekend we're all about making the most of it.
Since most of your time right now has been all about cramming for the exams, the last few weeks of the school drop-off drill and pounding the home-work books have no doubt taken its toll.
But the holidays are in sight - with the first school holidays set to kick off from 31 March until 17 April.
Enough work, it's soon time for play.
Instead of leaving the kids to their own devices come the Easter break, why not round-up the family and do something worthwhile. Choose stimulating activities that will help you make the most of your time together.
Whether you're a laid-back family in need of some leisure time, or an action-driven pack hunting for the next adventure, Traveller24 has you covered.
Here are a few suggestions on how to make the most of your quality time off - whether you're planning a staycation, or are headed to one of SA's major holiday hotspots.
