South Brisbane Playgrounds
This category is about South Brisbane Playgrounds but also includes Logan and Ipswich to ensure you don’t miss any that fall on the border or are still fairly close to you.
What to look for
All the playgrounds on the Brisbane Kids website are worth travelling to. We avoid listing small local parks and try and stick to the ones that have the wow factor or something unique and different to make them worth the drive. We have made this decision even easier and included a quick fact list for you and a heap of photos to ensure you know what to expect when you arrive.
