What to do in Brisbane at Easter time with your kids
The Brisbane Riverwalk
The Brisbane Riverwalk is made up of 20 kilometres of pathways, roads, riverside parks and bridges. You can choose to do any part of the walk and team it with a City Cat or City Ferry ride. There are a number of parks, picnic spots and cafes along the way at which to stop and refresh. The path can take you under the Story Bridge and along boardwalks through the mangroves. Many sections of the path are shared by walkers, cyclists and joggers and there are even sections of the path where you can watch rock climbers scaling the cliffs and kayakers cruising the river. Along the way you will come across playgrounds and plenty of places to stop for an ice cream to keep the kids happy. Finish the walk off with a night in one of the many hotels in the Brisbane CBD.
Story Bridge Adventure Climb
If your children are 10 or over, then they’re old enough to experience the thrill of climbing the Brisbane Story Bridge. There are 2 types of Bridge Climbs available. You can choose to climb to the top of the Story Bridge to view the spectacular Brisbane city skyline or you can choose the abseil climb, the only experience of its kind in the world, where you get to abseil down one of the Story Bridge pylons into Captain Burke Park below. Both experiences are truly unique to Brisbane and will provide memories that will last a lifetime. The climb can be done at dawn, day, twilight or night with each time offering a different experience. Staying the night at one of the luxury hotels in Brisbane followed by a dawn bridge walk is a once in a lifetime experience.
A day of culture at the Queensland Art Gallery
Introduce a little culture to your kids at the Queensland Art Gallery. Visit the website to see what’s on. There are a range of exhibitions and programs aimed directly at kids particularly during holiday periods along with the usual exhibits and displays. The kids will enjoy the hands on workshops and if the Gallery isn’t enough to entertain them for the day, the Queensland Museum located next door is sure to enthral. There are a number of Brisbane hotels nearby that offer Brisbane accommodation to suit families from budget hotels to luxury hotels in Brisbane CBD.
These are only a few suggested activities for the Easter holidays. Brisbane is a large city with world class entertainment options, a huge range of dining and accommodation types and plenty of free activities for the whole family.
