Cultural Activities for Families in Brisbane

Brisbane’s South Bank is a hive of culture and modernity. It’s a little reminiscent of Melbourne, according to, so it’s a great place to take children for a day of fun with the bonus of learning too!

Brisbane State Library

Brisbane’s State Library holds storytelling performances which will please the whole family, not just children. From the moment visitors enter and are asked to create special passports to gain entry, the mix of talented actors and children’s stories will keep families enthralled throughout.

Gallery of Modern Art

Art galleries don’t always appeal to children, but the Gallery of Modern Art currently houses a fascinating exhibition of artificial animals and an enormous real tree. The exhibition teaches visitors large and small about the creatures that live in Australia and there are interactive elements to hold the attention span of children. Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to answer questions about the installations. Drawing tools are provided for visual responses and there is even the opportunity for children to get involved in creating their own works of art.
