School Holiday Activities in Brisbane

by Sally (follow)
School holidays are not over yet and there are still plenty of days to fill with fun activities for the kids. But as our wallets run dry and our patience wears thin, we may be fast running out of ideas of things to do.

Luckily, both the Brisbane City Council and the Moreton Bay Regional Council have tons of programs and activities in parks, libraries and halls throughout Brisbane. There is a whole page dedicated to 'What's On in Brisbane' on the Brisbane City Council website for these school holidays. This page is absolutely choc full of free and low cost activities for all ages.

The activities aren't boring either. Some of the activities on offer include:

- Science shows
- Arts and crafts
- Gardening
- Story and rhyme time
- Standup paddling
- Circus skills
- Computer and coding classes

That is just to name a few!

If you are looking for just solely fitness related activities to really run the kids (or yourself) ragged, then you can also check out the Active Park Events. These activities focus on sport and fitness and most are completely free.

I have done a few of the Mums and Bubs fitness classes in Oriel Park in Ascot before and it was really great. There was a qualified personal trainer putting us through our paces and it was completely free! It would suit all fitness levels, and because you could bring along your bub, you don't have to worry about finding a sitter.

If you are in the Moreton Bay Regional Council areas, their website also has an active holidays program aimed at kids aged 3-17 years old with a range of sport and recreational activities.

Some of the activities on offer include:

- Soccer
- Gymnastics
- Flying fox and Giant Swing
- Fishing
- Table tennis
- Drum beats
- Scooter and bike training

On both websites you can filter by date, cost, age and activity. Some activities will need to be booked ahead of time so make sure to check the details. Other activities you can just show up on the day. If they aren't free, they are really affordable. Most of the Moreton Bay Region ones seem to be only $5.

If you don't make it to anything over the school holidays, don't worry. Both councils run programs year round so if you are waiting for things to quiet down, you absolutely can. Just keep an eye on their website to see what is coming up.
