Transport Yourself to the North Pole at Undersea Putt and Play

Keep the kids entertained these winter school holidays with an undersea experience they won’t forget – playing a round of putt putt in an undersea Putt Put themed course! Undersea Putt & Play features 18 challenging mini golf holes, an arcade, café and bar. While the kids are busy the adults can sneak off to enjoy frozen cocktails at the bar – cheers!


Fast Fun at Laserzone

Experience a fun-filled futuristic adventure at Brisbane’s leading laser tag arena, Laserzone! Located just 40 minutes from Brisbane CBD and in the northern suburbs of Moreton Bay, Laserzone Brisbane features a world-class multi-level laser tag arena, an exhilarating drifting and sliding bumper cars track, a NEW laser lounge featuring a full-service café, board games, licensed bar and an enormous video arcade and prize redemption. There are endless choices for entertainment for both kids and kidults!


Spend Some Family Fun at the Farm

The Moreton Bay Hinterland is an animal-lovers paradise with several farm experiences to delight kids of all ages these school holidays. If it’s something unique you’re looking for, there’s a herd of rescue deer at Lyell Deer Sanctuary just waiting to meet you! If it’s a farm experience you’re chasing, we suggest Trevena Glen Farm for their furry-animal-filled tours and horse-riding experiences. For the younger kiddies, look no further than White Ridge Farm. Here, you can hand-feed goats and alpacas, pet guinea pigs, enjoy a tractor ride or smile for a snap with Gypsy the Camel.


Get your Heart All A-flutter at Bribie Island Butterfly House

Straight out of a picture book, the Bribie Island Butterfly House is always in bloom and surrounded by fluttering butterflies all year-round. With a guided tour of the facility by volunteers, you can step into a butterfly haven and interact with them in their natural environment, even getting to see the breeding lab! Opening hours are Wednesday’s and Sunday’s and is pram and wheelchair friendly. Hot tip! Butterflies like bright colours such as red, so wear a colourful shirt and hat and you might just have a close encounter with a butterfly.


Settle in at the Library

Fancy a peaceful day out of the chill? Why not book your kids in for a workshop at your local library? There are a range of different workshops available at libraries across the region. Find out what's on at your local library here.


Welcome the Whales

Whale season is our favourite season and Winter marks the return of these gentle giants back to Moreton Bay Marine Park. Treat your family to a day of whale spotting and education from the folks at Brisbane Whale Watching. Cruises depart daily from Redcliffe Jetty and whale sightings are 100% guaranteed! Jump on board before all cruises are booked.


Pack a Picnic and hit the Park

Get the kids out of the house and away from technology with a visit to one (or many!) of Moreton Bay’s fantastic playgrounds these school holidays.

The Hills District All Abilities Playground – Leslie Patrick Park, Arana Hills
Spinnaker Park, Newport
Pine Rivers Park, Strathpine
Bray Farm ‘Harry Potter’ Park, Griffin
Petrie Mill Adventure Playground, Petrie

Flip Out in Strathpine

Flip Out is a red-hot favourite with tweens. Imagine more than 50 interconnected trampolines with a foam pit and slam dunk basketball rolled in… it’s a tween dream! There’re also special events planned for school holidays, unleash the ninja in your child.

We hope you enjoy your time exploring all that our wonderful region has to offer these school holidays.
