Things to see and do with kids in Brisbane
Brisbane Kids Attractions
Visitors in Brisbane who are travelling with kids in tow will be pleased to know that besides being in one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world, Brisbane itself offers plenty of activities, both outdoors and in.
Take the kids to the Children's Art Centre at the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art for a more cultural outing, while a trip to Sea World, Queensland's most popular attraction, is guaranteed to please with dolphins, penguins and even sharks to captivate and enthral kids of all ages. Pack a picnic, plenty of sunscreen and a Frisbee or ball and head to the New Farm Park where rolling green grass, fig trees and playgrounds will tire the little ones out while mum and dad relax under the shade of a tree.
Kids love animals and what could be better than a trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where children can interact with cuddly koalas and even get to hold them or feed and pet them - a once in a lifetime experience for many since this is the only koala sanctuary in the world where this is permitted.
For those spending a day in the city, stop off at the South Bank Parklands where children can swim at the artificial beach, enjoy a ride on the Wheel of Brisbane, meet other kids in the playgrounds or even rollerblade or skateboard along the river's edge. Other parks which are perfect for kids include Marchant Park and Peace Park, which both feature excellent playground areas and other attractions for children on holiday in Brisbane.
