Our Guide To The Ultimate Family Staycation This Easter

Sometimes the most relaxing holidays are those spent in your own backyard!

This Easter, get the family out of the house and down to the South Bank Parklands for some much needed, long weekend fun. Collating our top recommendations for things to do and see over the upcoming break, you’ll want to take note because this staycation guide will be a lifesaver once school’s out.

  1. Enjoy a sunny day in the Parklands.

The Riverside Green Playground and Aquativity play park have finally reopened, which means its time to pack those prams, load the car and plan a sunny day in South Bank! Free play spaces that will keep the kids entertained for hours, there’s never been a better excuse to get the kids out of the house.

  1. Ride on the Xpress Fun Train.

If you’ve been to South Bank, there’s a fair chance you would have spotted the mini Xpress Fun Train. A delight to young passengers, this train starts from the South Bank Piazza and runs a continuous loop of the Parklands. Available from 10am to 4pm daily and at a cost of $5 per passenger, this trackless train will be a sure hit with the little ones.

  1. Explore the Queensland State Library.

Looking for a great indoor activity this holidays? Explore wild and whacky cardboard sculptures and large interactive digital projections as part of The Great and Grand Rumpus exhibition at the Queensland State Library. Running until the 18th of April, entry is free!

  1. Treat yourself to something sweet.

It wouldn’t be a staycation without a sweet stop at Happy Pops. Creating the most insane gelato creations (adorned with all of your favourite, decadent toppings of course), Happy Pops know how to bring the fun.

  1. Sit down to a family dinner.

Treat the fam to a delicious meal at one of the many, wonderful restaurants in South Bank! For lovers of the classics, we highly recommend booking a table at Barbossa Bar (trust us on this one). Offering a selection of moreish tapas, mains, and kids meals, they cater to all tastes, diets and ages! For those chasing something fresh, fun and a little different, an evening at Poppies never goes astray. With beautiful shared plates and cocktails for the adults, and a tasty kids menu for the little ones, you will not be disappointed.
