School Holiday Fun for All Ages in the Moreton Bay Region

Posted: 11am 17 Sep 2019

If you think that last term went quickly and you’re scrambling to come up with ways to keep the kids entertained these holidays, don’t panic.

There are plenty of options across the Moreton Bay Region, especially now the warmer weather has arrived. Here are some ideas to get you started.

So, hit the water or walking track and enjoy this beautiful time of year.

1 AQUASPLASH REDCLIFFE

Get set to bounce and splash your way around the inflatable obstacle course on the water, off Pelican Park at Clontarf. It’s fun for thrillseekers aged over five years of age and will work every muscle in your body. If you’re planning to take on the kids, be prepared to be beaten. Sessions go for 50 minutes, with induction training beforehand. Tickets are $15, 5-9 years old (must be accompanied by a paying adult); $20 for 10 years or older. The park is open seven days a week from 9am-6pm. Check for changes to opening hours due to COVID-19 before you go. Visit aquasplash.com.au/redcliffe to book a session.

2 BRAY FARM PARK

Bray Farm Park at Griffin offers an adventurous day of fun and exploration with a mysterious feel about it. In fact it is called 'Harry Potter Park' by many locals. It combines art , culture and nature to create a unique experience within the family. The park is tucked away in Griffin's Riverbreeze Estate and features two main structures that have a bridge, climbing net, fireman's pole, slide, turrets and windows. There’s a larger climbing net separate from the structures that some people think looks a bit like Hermione’s time turner. Once you’ve finished exploring, go for a wander in nearby bushland in search of birds and koalas.

3 SETTLEMENT COVE

This 95m-long lagoon beside the sea at Redcliffe is the perfect place to have a fun day out. It has several sections that suit swimmers of all ages. For younger children, there is a fenced pool area with mushroom fountains and squirting lizards. Sandy bays lie along the edges of the main lagoon. As you go further into the lagoon, it gradually becomes deeper for more competent swimmers.

4 PUMICESTONE PASSAGE

Bribie Island's calm waters re perfect for children of all ages to go for a swim, wet a line, paddle on a boogie board, or jump in a kayak. Pack a picnic and make it a day — there's plenty to do as the tide comes in and out. The passage is one of Australia’s most important bird and marine habitats on the east coast. It’s home to an amazing array of birdlife, and if you look carefully you may spot a dugong, dolphin or turtle. You can discover the passage from its shores or on the water. There are plenty of options for boat hire, if you’re really keen.

5 SAMFORD CONSERVATION PARK

Pull on your walking shoes or riding boots and head for a day of bushwalking, horse riding, or mountain biking at Samford Conservation Park. The level of activity is completely up to you and your brood. For those just looking for something to do for an hour, there are walking and riding tracks, and longer ones for families up for the challenge. When you’re ready for a break, stop at Ironbark Gully picnic area where you will find plenty of space for your picnic blanket, wood fire barbecues, wheelchair-accessible toilets and even picnic tables. Ironbark Gully is just off Samford Rd at Ferny Hills.
