Where is it: Abbey Museum, 1/63 The Abbey Place, Caboolture
What’s it all about: It’s a fantastic and fun way to introduce you little guys to history!
Tell me more: The Abbey Medieval Tournament is a very well-known event here in Brisbane (check out our review here), and it’s clear that the guys at the Abbey Museum know how to put on a spectacle! So you just know that if they put on an event for kids, you just know that it’s going to be fun! Kids Dig It! is a week of family fun with history in mind – lots of fun old-time games, dress-ups, archaeological digs and heaps more, all entertaining and engaging and even if your little guys are not into history, chances are they will be after visiting! It’s a fantastic school holiday event that will keep the whole family engaged!

Where is it: 1 – 63 The Abbey Place (off Old Toorbul Point Road) Caboolture, Queensland
What's it all about: Spend a weekend transported back in time and see history brought back to life when you attend Australia's largest medieval event!
How can I join in: There are a number of events on so check what best suits you and get your tickets! Or better yet, join a re-enactment organisation and get involved in the event!
Tell me more: Billed as Australia's largest medieval event, the Abbey Medieval Festival spans over a number of days during the winter school holidays, culminating in the Tournament Weekend - 2 days of non-stop reenactments, displays, entertainment and even a real and competitive jousting tournament! There really is no end to the experiences that you will have when you attend this festival - the costumes and the displays are authentic and the smells of the open fire roast cooking are amazing! It is a really well supported and run event and it's hugely popular! There is also a medieval banquet held at night which from all accounts really needs to be experienced, as well as some fun days through the week prior to the tournament just for the little guys! This is yet another of the 'must see' events in Brisbane!
