Fun Places to Go in Brisbane for Kids

Kid-Friendly Bushwalks Brisbane

Want to spend some time with your kids amongst nature? Check out one of the many kid-friendly bushwalks around Brisbane. For a central hike, make your way from the Botanic Gardens and hike up to the Mt Cooth-tha summit. For a casual bushwalk, explore the Bellbird Grove Walking Tracks and enjoy a picnic in the gorgeous clearing.

For Kids With Plenty of Energy

If your kid is known for bouncing off the walls, there are plenty of places in Brisbane that will let them do just that. For literal bouncing, Bounce Trampoline Park is your best bet. If your little ones are less into bouncing and more into climbing, The Jungle Adventure Play has rock walls, high ropes, playgrounds, ninja courses and more for monkeys of all ages. 

Fresh From the Farm

Visiting a farm with your kids is not only a great way to educate them on where their food comes from but also a good excuse to pet and cuddle cute animals. Naughty Little Kids is a goat farm just outside of Brisbane. Feed baby goats and make sure you taste their legendary goats’ milk ice cream. 

The Perfect Day Out For Bookworms

Does your kid love to read? Unfortunately, bookstores have slowly begun to peter out over the last few decades. Lucky for us Brisbanites, there are still a few spots where you and your little one can explore shelves full of stories just for them. Where the Wild Things Are and The Mad Hatters Book Shop are adorable bookstores in Brisbane for kids. For more literary fun, The State Library of Queensland frequently runs workshops and activities that imaginative kids will love, making it one of the most fun places to go in Brisbane for kids.

Take a Day Trip to the Beach

Thinking of taking a few day trips from Brisbane with kids? There is no better way to while away a day with the kids than in the sun, surf and sand. We’re lucky enough to have so many gorgeous beaches only an hour or so drive away. Check out our blog on the Best Gold Coast Beaches for Kids and start planning the ultimate family beach trip. For a beach closer to home, you can always hit up South Bank’s man-made beach and enjoy a picnic in the surrounding parklands after your swim.
