The sun and the beach are a great blessing for the Queensland kids. When the School holidays start, kids can be entertained in the sun all season. But you have to choose programs that will keep the kids entertained and safe. Here are some of the top School holiday programs in Brisbane.
1. Park Hendra
This is the best place for some extreme adventure. You get to experience a world-class trampoline park and it also has a chance for kids to take ski lessons for an entire hour. If you have smaller kids, you can keep them engaged with the adventure play activities like crawling and climbing challenges. For as little as $70, your kids can enjoy a fun-fulfilled day of adventure (from 9.00am-3.00pm). It is a good idea to book in advance because the demand usually goes up during the holidays.
2. Queensland Museum
The Queensland museum houses permanent exhibitions but there are always lots of changing exhibitions so you will never lack something new. The best part is that most of the exhibitions are free. When planning the holidays, take a time to visit the museum as a way of having some fun-filled educational moments as the kids get to interact with the history of Queensland. There is a café at the museum that is family friendly and the food prices are pocket friendly as well. The museum opens at 9.30am and closes at 5pm daily so you can set your own schedule.
3. Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens
The Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens is one of the top destinations for families. If you are looking for a place to picnic with your family, it doesn’t get any better than this. But you do not have to picnic though- you can just visit to take in the beauty of the gardens and then settle down at their café for a lunch or coffee. The children can play hide seek in the beautiful gardens and they will also watch the beautiful butterflies, dragonflies and native bees. Make sure to supervise the kids though because there is also a crocodile on site although it is well secluded.
4. South bank
Located to the south of Brisbane on the banks of Brisbane is a lush acreage of lush parklands that provide an awesome playground for the kids. The 17 acre property has lots of eateries as well as a great lagoon that has an awesome waterpark area. Can it get better than that? Yes it does – you do not need to pay a single cent to use the facility! You can therefore spend the entire day here just having fun with the kids.
5. Daisy Hill Koala Reserve
If your kids love Koalas, the Daisy Hill Koala reserve is a must-visit. The Koala reserve is an education facility and is therefore free of charge. There are lots of Koala enclosures. You can walk on two levels of boardwalks to view the Koalas after which you can have a picnic. The facility opens at 10am and closes at 4pm.
