Kids in the City – Autumn 2024 issue – OUT NOW!

Kids in the City – Autumn 2024 – From the Editor

Travelling was always a massive part of my life BK (Before Kids). It came with plenty of highs (working at a beach bar in the Balearics) and plennnnnnty of lows (stranded with food poisoning on the salt flats of Bolivia).

But that all came to a halt once I became a parent.

People say you can travel with a baby. But I couldn’t fathom it. For me, even doing a grocery run with a newborn was a challenge.

Between the sleepless nights, the feeding, and scraping together enough money to pay the bills, jumping on a plane was a distant memory. And let’s not get into the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis!

But the silver lining of this story? Over the last few years, we have discovered the joy of the family ‘mini-break’. We go places that we can reach in the car; where the kids will eat the food, and there are things to do that everyone will enjoy. It’s affordable (many we can camp at), we don’t go for long, so we don’t have to kennel the dogs—or even better, we go where we can take them too! And there is so much to explore in southeast Queensland; we haven’t scratched the surface.

So, this issue, we celebrate the mini-break. Those incredible places that we have right on our doorstep. From camping and holiday parks to epic kids clubs and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, they are all within easy reach of Brisbane.

Also, in this issue, we visit out-of-this-world indoor playcentre, The Fun Spaceship, and plan the ultimate space-themed birthday party.

And, because all families are really feeling the financial pinch right now, we’ve gone out to the local business community to collect discount codes for our readers. They are for anything and everything related to kid-sized living in southeast Queensland. You’ll find them at the back of the issue.

Plus, we have all the regular news, reviews, events and activities—all bundled up in a super-duper Autumn edition! If you are ever stuck for something to do with the kids, don’t forget to jump onto our website, where you’ll find an easy-to-use calendar with the region’s best kid-friendly activities:
