Where is it: Orion Springfield Central, 1 Main St, Springfield Central QLD 4300
What’s it all about: An amazing arcade experience for the whole family!
Tell me more: Although Orion Springfield is not exactly lacking in entertainment options, there’s always space for a bit more fun. And fun doesn’t come much more exciting than Timezone – certainly one of Australia’s favourite arcades! Timezone Springfield has just opened to bring their unique style to this region. They have been entertaining families for over 40 years, so they definitely know how to bring the fun, with a huge range of arcade games, mini bowling arcade, laser tag, bumper cars and heaps more. There are fantastic deals for arcade credit and it’s definitely a bonus to squeeze a few more games out of your money, and of course they have a fantastic ticket shop to reward yourself after a busy gaming session!
Where is it: 6 Yoga Way, Springfield Central
What’s it all about: A wonderful and casual family café with fantastic healthy food and a relaxing and friendly atmosphere!
Tell me more: Have you ever struggled to find a café that serves yummy food that the kids will tuck into, but is also healthy to boot? Well, we’re sure that Raw Energy will satisfy both requirements! Offering a wonderful array of meals with a focus on healthy and full of energy foods, Raw Energy in Springfield is a fantastic choice for the kids as well! It has a casual and friendly vibe, super yummy food and heaps of activities for the kids (and adults) while you are waiting and dining – card games, books toys and even a little blackboard will certainly keep the little guys occupied while you relax and enjoy the food! Add to that the wonderful, relaxing views of the Orion Lagoon and it’s no wonder that this is one very popular spot for those in the Springfield area!
Where is it: Mack drives around to different locations – keep an eye out for where they pop up next!
Why we love it: Get to meet the real life Lightning McQueen and Mack and take part in fun Disney Cars activities!
Tell me more: So much fun for your little Cars fans – or even if somehow your kids are not into the Cars franchise! There are heaps of fun activities to get into, obviously you will get to meet Mack and Lightning McQueen, but there are jumping castles, inflatable slides, art and craft – even a scooter race! Your little guys will definitely have an awesome time at the Pit Stop but be aware that Cars is definitely not losing its popularity over the years (the original Cars is over 10 years old now!) – so be prepared to wait a while to get in!
Where is it: 154 Southern Cross Circuit‚ Springfield
Why we love it: It's the complete parkland experience! A great mix of lawns, paths, playgrounds and water will make sure that you satisfy everyone's needs!
Tell me more: Robelle Domain is a parkland that is right up there with Southbank, Roma Street Parklands, and New Farm Park as being some of the best parks in the area, and I'm sure more than a few people would argue that it's the best! It's not hard to see why either, as there is so much to do here, from a picnic or a quiet stroll along the kilometres of pathways, or getting into the action at the water-play park, playground, grab a coffee at one of the cafés or pack your swimmers for Orion Lagoon! The water-play area is really fun, with soft-fall floor, lots of sprinklers and a giant dumping bucket! Orion Lagoon is a huge (and free!) public pool area, complete with lifeguards and a great little area for the little guys - it would be worth visiting just for the lagoon, but the playgrounds and park areas are hard to ignore! We've been along to Robelle Domain a number of times and we always have a great time - there's just so much to do! Probably the only downside to this park is that it is so popular so you will need to get in early if you want to secure yourself a picnic spot!
Amenities: Full amenities and there's even a café! 👍👍👍👍
Parking: Enough parking, but it is very popular! 👍👍👍
Access: Easy to access, however it is a large park! 👍👍👍👍
Best for: Everyone! 👍👍👍👍👍
Summary: Certainly one of the best parks in Brisbane! If you are looking for a park that ticks all the boxes, this one does just that! 👍👍👍👍👍
Hints: Get in early to avoid the crowds - it is very popular!
