Don’t let rain ruin your holiday to Brisbane. Instead, have a couple of great wet-weather saviours up your sleeve. Luckily, Brisbane has a number of fun indoor activities to choose from. From interactive museums to a bouncy trampoline park, try one of these nine activity ideas for when the heavens open.

Play a Board Game

Make your own fun in your holiday cabin or in our holiday park’s welcome lounge. No matter how young or old your kids are, board games are a traditional family favourite. From Monopoly to Chess and Family Feud, they’ll surely be entertained for hours. 

Explore the Queensland Museum or Sciencentre

One of the best things about a holiday is getting out and exploring, and the rain doesn’t have to stop you! Go indoors and explore Natural History at the Queensland Museum or Science at Sciencentre for a fun-filled day of learning and activities.

 Get Creative at Plaster Fun House

Plaster Fun House is a fun place to spend the morning or afternoon with your children. From $3 per piece, the kids will be able to get creative, painting pre-prepared plaster creations. With hundreds of plaster pieces to choose from, it’s as much fun for you as it is for your kids. 

Get Interactive at the Workshop Rail Museum

An exciting adventure for children and rail enthusiasts of all ages, the Workshop Rail Museum in Ipswich brings history to life with a range of hands-on exhibits. 

Bowling and Ice Skating

Always a classic option, bowling and ice skating can still draw a happy crowd. Tucked away amongst the fashion set in the Wintergarden, Strike Bowling in Brisbane is a kid’s dream. Or, in both North and South Brisbane, Ice World is a great place for kids to skate around while listening to entertaining music. 

Watch a Movie

It’s a time honoured classic, but nothing beats eating some popcorn while you enjoy watching a movie on the big screen. Try Event Cinemas; wherever you find yourself, the franchise has a couple of locations in Brisbane to choose from.

Go Shopping at Westfield Garden City

In the suburb of Upper Mount Gravatt, Westfield Garden City is one of Brisbane’s major shopping centres. Spend hours entertaining your kids by exploring, shopping, and eating at one of the 440 stores, cafes and restaurants. 

Jump around at Sky Zone

Head to Sky Zone where your kids can jump and play on the hundreds of trampolines. Toddler areas are available, and if your little ones get bored of jumping, there’s also the Skyland on site – Brisbane’s only three storey laser tag arena.  When the rain clears up, check out our other top child-friendly things to do in Brisbane.  Planning a trip to Brisbane and looking for a family-friendly place to stay?
