Playgroup Queensland

The secret to finding Mum friends in your local area

A topic that comes up constantly in discussions on Brisbane Mums Group, is how to meet other mums. Mum friends are so important for your sanity and emotional wellbeing, and having friends who are experiencing what you are experiencing is invaluable.

It's not always easy to find friends in your local area, especially when routines and life circumstances continually change. I find that the older my son gets (he is now a toddler), the more difficult it is to have a coffee shop catch up. At this stage, it's important to look for venues that have a space for the kids to run around, while also giving you the chance to socialise.

Playgroup Queensland is a useful website, which helps you find a playgroup in your local area. You just put in your address and what days you are looking for, and the search function filters playgroups by distance from you.

The Brisbane Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Brisbane mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.
Most playgroups are attached to a community centre, school or a church. There is usually a safe play area for the kids, and the cost is either free or very low with a gold coin donation or up to $10 a week.

The website lists a contact person for the group to ask questions, what ages the group is appropriate for, availability and a bit more information about the group.

Some groups will also offer morning tea and coffee, a playground, or be for a specific group in the community, such as grandparents or a particular cultural background.


You can also become a member of Playgroup Queensland to have access to playgroups across Queensland as well as play activities and online resources, toy library membership and access to competitions, special offers and free events. Membership starts from just $25 for six months.

Playgroup is a great opportunity for you to socialise with parents in your local area and perhaps make some lifelong lasting friendships. As most groups meet weekly, you can get to know some familiar faces. It also gives your kids a chance to make friends and play with some new toys and equipment in a new environment.

If you need some time out from the kids over the weekend, want to enjoy a bit of adult conversation and a relaxed tour of the city, Brisbane Food Safari Club has a new experience starting in July.
