What’s on this weekend

Posted: 11am 25 Mar 2021

Wondering what you’re going to do this weekend? Here’s your guide to what’s on in the Moreton Bay Region, just north of Brisbane.

Here are some ideas to get you started, with a little bit of everything to keep the whole family happy.

Earth Hour - Night with the owls

Celebrate Earth Hour by turning off your lights at home and heading along to Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre on March 27, 6-8pm.

The centre’s popular evening raptor demonstration will give you the opportunity to watch birds of prey showcase their free-flight behaviours. You'll also learn about different habitats, threats and feeding techniques of our Moreton Bay owl species.

This is a family friendly event and remember to dress warmly. Bring along a chair or picnic blanket.

Bookings are essential. Find more details here

Strathpine State School P&C Flea Market

This typical second-hand market is a treasure trove for the bargain-hunter or collector with a choice of more than 150 market stalls. It is one of the most popular markets near Brisbane and there’s more on offer than merely market shopping with food, coffee, buskers, fortune tellers, massage and even haircuts. The market is on Saturday, March 27 from 6-11am at Pine Rivers Showground. Entry is free.
