If you are heading to Brisbane with children, you will find plenty to do both indoors and out. Brisbane has a network of parks throughout the CBD, so be sure to visit some of the green spaces where you can watch your children at play in the most picturesque surroundings. Roma Street Parkland is particularly interesting: not only is there a brilliant playground, but both adults and children will enjoy spotting the garden displays around the 16 hectares of land.
For a different kind of play time, visit Southbank and try the aquativity, where children can have fun in the water play area. There’s also a man-made beach for a real seaside feel.
When it’s time to head inside, try some of Brisbane’s diverse and plentiful museums and galleries. The Gallery of Modern Art, Science Centre, Queensland Art Gallery and Queensland Museum all come recommended as child-friendly options by the parenting community at brisbanewithkids.com.au.
