What’s on in Brisbane This Weekend
Here you are again. At the better end of the week, trudging happily down the easy side of hump day, and starting to skip your way into the weekend. No doubt you are only half-focused on any items of business left and are already starting to wonder how best to fill those lovely two days with things that will keep the family happily entertained and little minds active. Rest assured, there are so many wonderful things you can do to make the most of your family time together this weekend, as Brisbane never fails to offer up a variety of options for you to choose from.
Where can you easily find out what’s on in Brisbane this weekend?
To find out what events are being hosted in Brisbane this weekend, head to the Event Calendar on our Brisbane Kids website. We work hard to keep this calendar up-to-date with what’s on, and by downloading our Brisbane Kids smart phone app you can make browsing and finding specific events even easier and quicker. Check out what events are coming up and also find out about the regular ones too. Brisbane is home to many great markets which are on each weekend and there is usually a fete or two as well. These are always a huge hit with the kids and are a great way to support local schools and community organisations at the same time.
What if there is nothing happening in Brisbane?
It’s ok if there aren’t any events that take your fancy in our event calendar – we still have plenty more suggestions! We’ve found the best places to take the family and fun activities to do in Brisbane any day of the year. Go for a bike ride along the river, visit a theme park or zoo, or eat out at one of the great kid-friendly cafes in your area. South Bank is always popular, and a trip to a local swimming pool is a sure way to keep smiles wide, bodies active and hearts healthy in the warmer months. For those beautiful, sunny days where a picnic is beckoning and staying inside should be a crime, we also have a detailed list of all the best parks and playgrounds with the biggest WOW factor in Brisbane. Try to visit as many different ones as you can, and discover which ones excite your little ones the most!
Rainy Day Ideas in Brisbane
If Brisbane is not putting on its best weather for you, then there are always great indoor activities to explore. Maybe bunk in and get little hands and creative minds busy with some fun crafts. Make a game, some artwork or even some imaginative play toys together! Alternatively, have your own family ‘Masterchef’ bake-off in the kitchen! Brisbane Kids has a huge list of kid friendly recipes to get you started too. If you’re still keen to get away from the house, then maybe a visit to one of Brisbane’s libraries, museums, one of the many cinemas, or an indoor playcentre might be a more enticing option? If you need inspiration, check out our list of the best things to do on a rainy day in Brisbane on the website.
