Other activities

Canterbury-Bankstown is always hosting fun events for young people! These include dance parties, camps and mini Olympics activities. Other activities are recreational in nature with fantastic health benefits, like Zumba.

We also often host educational sessions over the summer holidays; ranging from safer driving classes, swimming lessons, classes for parents, and trips to museums or gardening. You can learn a life skill or simply meet new people.
