The Office for Regional Youth’s Holiday Break program provides young people across regional NSW with the opportunity to enjoy a range of free and subsidised activities to reconnect, socialise, learn new skills and have fun during the school holidays. 

All regional NSW councils and not-for-profit groups can apply for funding to deliver events as part of the Holiday Break program.
