HOT: Aquativity, South Bank, Brisbane

Aquativity is the water play park at Brisbane’s South Bank and it’s a must-do for any visit to Brisbane. Luckily Brisbane experiences balmy weather for most of the year which means you can enjoy Aquativity in almost any season (though admittedly my kids are much hardier than me about cold water!). Integrated into the large pool […]

HOT: Riverside Green playground, South Bank, Brisbane

Riverside Green is a large adventure playground in Brisbane’s South Bank and it’s a cracker if your kids are confident climbers. The vibrant pink, green and blue colour scheme is inspired by South Bank’s ‘Grand Arbour’ of blooming bougainvillea and the play area is split up into four play environments. The ‘adventure zone’ contains the […]

HOT: Broadwater Parklands, Marine Parade, Southport, Gold Coast

Broadwater Parklands is a fantastic redevelopment of Southport’s previously dowdy foreshore with a range of sites and facilities, many of them free. It’s one of the best places to take kids on the Gold Coast. Our favourite part is the Rockpools, a semi-fenced water play area featuring water jets, fountains, a waterfall and sculptural pieces […]

HOT: Nude Food Day + Nude Food Movers Giveaway!

I’ve previously raved about Nude Food Movers, the range of reusable plasticware that reduces waste and packaging while encouraging people to pack their own nutritious lunches and snacks. I love it even more since I took a Rubbish Free Lunch Box on our holiday to Japan. It was such a godsend! Every day I was able to fill it with […]

HOT: Tiger Tribe Piccolo range for playing on-the-go

Travelling on a plane with kids can be a stressful experience. How do you keep lively toddlers still and entertained in an uncomfortable confined space? One of my favourite discoveries has been Tiger Tribe’s Piccolo range, portable packages of small colourful and creative activities. I bought the Piccolo Oodle Doodle Crayon Set – Animals for […]
