Where is it: Powerhouse, New Farm
What's it all about: A really nice arts facility on the bank of the Brisbane River (and adjacent to New Farm Park!) that exhibits both art and theater and also runs really fun and interactive sessions just for the little (0-5yrs) kids!
How can I join in: Just turn up, get involved and have fun! Check the website to see what's on, or simply stop by and have a relaxing cuppa while looking out over the river!
Tell me more: Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm is housed in an old power station building right next to New Farm Park. Here they hold a number of different exhibitions and performances as well as a great, weekly exhibit for kids, aptly named Powerkids! We've been to a number of these exhibits and they are presented really well and in a way that immediately grabs the attention of the little ones - and the atmosphere is really relaxed and casual so there's no pressure on the kids or the parents! The exhibits change every couple of months or so, but they really get the kids thinking and they really like being able to contribute in a small way! Plus, once you are finished, you can wander straight into New Farm Park for a play! A great day out!
