QAGOMA Children's Art Centre

by Sally Foster (follow)
Programs just for babies and kids

The Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, or QAGOMA, is one of the best places to visit in Brisbane with babies and kids. Or without of course, if you ever have a rare day to yourself or your partner! Located in beautiful South Brisbane, there are tons of public transport options to get there, as well as lots of other cool places to visit and eat nearby.

But did you know that QAGOMA also ran free programs and events just for your babies and kids?
