Where is it: Boronia Road, Brisbane International Airport
What's it all about: An opportunity to check out some awesome planes and helicopters and to find out more about the aviation industry!
Tell me more: Aviation has always had such an appeal and drawing power for all ages! Here in Brisbane we have an annual expo that is free to attend which showcases the aviation industry. There are 3 hangers which host a number of presentations, displays, seminars and exhibitions associated with aviation careers, training and education. This side of the expo is really informative, but there is no doubt about the main attraction - out on the tarmac for the Aircraft Experience Zone! There are military cargo planes, jets and helicopters, airliners, heritage warbirds, small planes and emergency service vehicles that you can get up close to and even climb on board for a truly authentic experience! Such a fun day out for the family even though it is a little tough visiting an airport without actually flying anywhere!
Where is it: The Grand Chapiteau, at Skygate (DFO), Brisbane Airport
What's it all about: The world renowned acrobatic and performance based circus that tours the world!
How can I join in: Head along to their website to secure your tickets and get prepared to be amazed! There are a number of shows including both afternoon (great for the kids!) and night time slots and tickets starting from $60!
Tell me more: For over 30 years, this Canadian based and premiere performance circus of the world (there are no animals) has been amazing millions of people around the world! As well as permanent fixtures in some of the casinos of Las Vegas, a touring big top and troupe head around the world, bringing new shows on every tour - and luckily for us in Brisbane they love to bring their show here! No-one is exempt from the charm and expectation of Cirque du Soleil (in case you are wondering, this is French for 'Circus of the Sun'), with local celebrities and personalities never missing out on the opportunity to see this amazing show, and adding to the special atmosphere that this circus brings to cities wherever it visits! 'Kooza' is their current offering and as expected, it does not disappoint! The reputation of Cirque du Soleil is genuinely warranted and the truly amazing costumes, choreography, lighting, music and of course the amazing acrobatic skills of the performers will have you in awe! If you haven't experienced this show yet, you owe it to yourself to see what it's all about!
