Snow4Kids will be back for its 6th year with a few changes including more snow and reduced ticket prices in 2018. The Snow4Kids Park will feature a real snow experience for Brisbane Kids. Included in every booked session, of which there are seven every day of the festival, kids will have fun with tobogganing, snow play on the snow mountain and throwing snowballs at targets.

The best news is that this year, snowman building will also be included in the session (last year you had to purchase other tickets for snowman making).

Last year’s Snow4Kids Park at The Courier-Mail Piazza was a sold out event that attracted over 16,000 visitors, so booking well in advance is highly recommended.

Please note: In the case of the Snow4Kids Park, anyone over the age of 12 is not allowed to throw Snowballs or ride the toboggans for health and safety reasons. This is to ensure the safety of all children and adults in the park. Adults are allowed to help children where necessary and enjoy the snow play with them.  Adults are more than welcome to build a snowman with their children.

Date: 30th June – 15th July 2018

Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm  daily. Sessions every hour, on the half hour.

Location: The Courier Mail Piazza, South Bank

Cost: $15 per child, per 50 minute session. Ticket covers entry for one person. Every person entering Snow4Kids will require a ticket. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session. Online bookings will incur a booking fee. Babies 12 months and under may enter the park for free with a paying adult.


Remember for both activities your Brisbane Kids are going to get wet and cold so beanies, boots and gloves are recommended as are a change of clothes so everyone can go home dry and warm after their fun in the snow.To find out more about Brisbane’s wonderful array of regular cultural festivals, take a look at the upcoming Brisbane Festivals or our Brisbane Kids Event Calendar

    We plan to do this EVERY year but never have the $$$. Winning for ourselves and 24 other families would be amazing

    How exciting! Some children never get to experience something so awesome.

    Definitely want to win this one. I walked past it the other day and thought it looked great. My daughter would love it. Would love to tell her class mates she won!

    I was honestly a little disappointed in this years event. There were restrictions in place for snowball throwing, reducing the amount of fun as you only had a very small area where people were allowed to do this.

    Last year, there was a lot of snow, but it was not the same this year. The grounds were covered in white plastic sheeting, and the only “snow”, was on the hills that were set up for tobogganing.

    It was so hard to mould the snow – which felt more like ice – into a snowman. Near impossible to make a snowman in the 30 minute sessions.

    Also, I noticed that the gates did not open for entry, until 5 minutes after the scheduled start time and then they started chasing people out 10 minutes before the scheduled closing time – so we lost time out of our paid sessions because of this.

    All in all, last years was good, but it has changed this year, but sadly, not for the better. Hopefully, I can find something better to take my kids to next year.

    Very disappointing and not at all how they describe it to be 🙁
