Some trips out with the family can be quite expensive, however Brisbane has many brilliant activities on offer that won't break the bank.

Here are 5 of my favourite cheap, cheerful and child-friendly places to visit.

1. Redlands IndigiScapes Centre, Capalaba

This hidden gem provides lots to see and do for every member of the family.

With numerous walking tracks, beautiful butterfly gardens and a play area for the kids, IndigiScapes Capalaba is a bargain afternoon out for any Brisbane family.

Grab a hot coffee and a bite to eat from the Tea Garden Cafe, get lost in the native plant maze, and most off all enjoy the stunning scenery around you.
