Easter Holidays are approaching very fast. If you are planning on attending ticketed events now is the time to secure your spot. If you are winging it with the kids its good to have some ideas in your mind for rainy days - if we actually get any rain.

If you are closer to the city enjoy a trip to South Bank and visit one of Brisbane's premiere playgrounds. South Bank has the additional bonus of being able to have a swim, which you might need if this glorious QLD weather keeps up!
