Where is it: Various locations, ‘20/’21 school holidays at Little Stanley St, South Bank
Why we love it: Putt putt with a Pixar theme – what more needs to be said?!
Tell me more: Mini golf has been a family favourite since, well, forever! So add in the theme of one of the most popular family animated franchises of the last 25 years (yes, Pixar movies have been around that long!) you know that it’s going to be a fun event. Work your way through 9 or 18 holes of fantastically modelled scenarios, all based on Pixar movies – The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Brave, Up, Monsters, Inside out, The Good Dinosaur, Cars, Wall-E, Bugs Life, Ratatouille, Coco and new films Soul and Onward are all covered, and Toy Story is very well represented as well! We had so much fun playing with the kids, the holes have some wonderful challenging elements which the little guys loved, and it’s just as much fun for the grown-ups as well. So much so that from Thursday to Saturday after 7pm, Pixar Putt is reserved for the over 18s only. This one is definitely one to check out, but hurry – it’s only here for a limited time, this summer’s season here in Brisbane is finishing up on 7 Feb 2021!

Where is it: Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast
Why we love it: An attraction within an attraction – what could be better!
Tell me more: You might not think that one of the Sunshine Coast’s most loved attractions (check out our SEALIFE blog here) needs to do much more to get people to visit, but that’s exactly what they do on the school holidays! They always play host to lots of school holiday programs that will keep everyone (not just the little guys) engaged with lots of immersive and interactive exhibits. As an example, our little guys loved exploring the aquarium with a pirate-themed treasure hunt and there was much excitement searching the aquarium for mermaids and pirate artefacts, and the daily pirate and mermaid performances were really fun. Other exhibits we've enjoyed include Lego, Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Angry Birds and SLIMED! (this one was really fun and we got feel and learn about some of the slimy creatures in the sea)!
These school holidays, SEALIFE is welcoming some very special new guests – little blue penguins! As a new permanent feature of SEALIFE, the Little Blue Penguins zone will immerse guests in the wonderful world of the smallest penguin species and no doubt these little guys will be very popular additions.
