Easter school holidays are fast approaching and to save you the time of scouring the net and community notice boards, we have come up with a selection of Brisbane’s best value family and kid friendly activities.
Little Days Out at South Bank Parklands
One of the best for especially younger kids is the Little Days Out at South Bank Parklands. There is a huge selection of activities including workshops, games, dance classes and more every Thursday and Sunday throughout March and April and best of all – it’s FREE! Click here to see a full synopsis of the Little Days out Program.
Outback Easter Workshops
Another way to fill up their free time is a day at the Outback Easter Workshops at the Rail Museum, Ipswich. Kids can get involved in a variety of Easter-themed activities in addition to getting up close with non-venomous snakes, native birds, lizards and mammals with the guidance of the rangers from Wildlife Encounters. The only cost is the entry fee to the museum and for kids under 3 years, it is free to enter.
For an aquatic adventure, the Wynnum Wading Pool or South Bank Street’s Beach is just what the doctor ordered. Both have plenty of space and sun for entertaining the kids and giving mum and dad that much needed break.
A local favourite for the school holidays is Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) with children’s programs and exhibitions running every weekday as well as the free Yayoi Kusama – The obliteration room exhibit. Of course, there’s plenty for the adults to see and do as well.
For more active Brisbane kids, a great idea is the Mt Coot-tha trails. If the hike is a little too daring, you can drive to the top and grab an ice-cream at the summit while you enjoy the amazing city views.
Whether it’s some of these great Brisbane experiences, exploring cafes and boutiques in Paddington’s eclectic community, or exploring Lamington National Park’s natural wonders, there is loads to see and do these Easter holidays!
