I'm a mother of four with two coeliac children. I'm always on the lookout for great gluten-free spots around Brisbane and feature gluten-free cooking in my blog: coeliacfamily.blogspot.com.au
I'm also a muso and enjoy live music around town.
Update March 31st 2017
Please note that the Family Weekend and Movie Night scheduled for Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd April, 2017 has been postponed due to the weather.
Worried about the kids going crazy even though it's only the first day of the holidays?
How about locking them up in a gaol for the afternoon?
Well maybe that's not the best idea, but by visiting Boggo Road Gaol in Dutton Park you can certainly keep them entertained for the afternoon and evening with some of the great activities on offer at one of Brisbane's most notorious landmarks.
On Saturday 1st April why not head out for the evening and take the children on a one hour tour of the Gaol to learn more about the history of Boggo Road, or perhaps discover more about some of the gaol's famous escapees? You can follow on from the tour with an Easter Egg hunt which will take place within the walls of the Gaol. This will be followed by a screening of the classic stop-motion children's escape movie, "Chicken Run" by Aardman Animations. If you haven't seen the movie before, it is a comedy escape drama with a touch of passion set on a Yorkshire chicken farm in 1950's England. The film follows the turbulent romance between two farmyard chickens, Rocky and Ginger, who yearn for freedom and plan a daring 'prisoner of war' style escape.
You can participate in as few or as many of the activities as you like. It's the perfect opportunity to get outdoors - why not bring the whole family and have an enjoyable evening!
If you intend to participate in both a tour and the movie, the doors will open at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm tour start. If you are only undertaking the Easter Egg Hunt and the Movie, the doors will open at 6:15pm for the Easter Egg Hunt. You must have a movie only ticket or a movie and tour ticket to participate in the Easter Egg Hunt. The doors will open at 6:45pm for the Movie Only.

Child / Teen – $10.00
Family (2 Adults 2 Children) – $49.95
Movie and Tour Pricing:
