Skyzone is a massive arena filled with trampolines, pits of foam and bouncy walls. The three-storey arena also includes laser tag, indoor rock climbing and plenty of other fun activities. While you can let your kids loose to play around, you can consider taking part in some quick exercise classes.

3. Visit Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA)

While an art gallery may not seem like a fun place for children, this certainly isn’t the case with Brisbane’s GOMA. Head straight for the Children’s Art Centre, where you’ll find plenty of kids’ activities. While your kids can get their craft on, you can take time exploring the exhibits and learning more about Brisbane’s art and culture.

And, if you choose to stay with us at Bridgewater Terraces, getting to the GOMA will not be a problem for you. Our holiday apartments are located in Kangaroo Point – just a 10-minute drive away from the GOMA.

4. Hit Riverlife for some adventure on your Brisbane holiday
