Below you will find information for IKEA, Westfield Chermside, Northlakes, Carindale and Indooroopilly Shopping Town,


IKEA at Logan is an ultimate destination for many Brisbane families because of it’s family friendly environment. They offer Wide aisles and an amazingly restaurant, including where kids eat free on Thurs and Fri nights (*check details for going to be sure all offers still apply). Many families head there for a cheap breakfast followed by a browse and buy. In addition to these features, IKEA also have an amazing FREE playroom where you can leave the kids for up to an hour. The kids need to be aged between 3-8yrs- they need to be toilet trained though and will not accept children in a nappy. You will get given a beeper to alert when the time is up and incase your Brisbane Kid wants their parents back. The only downside is you cant book and so they will only take the kids if there is room for them. You should confirm all these services before arrival and can find their contact details via the IKEA website.
