I was a bit disappointed with the listing for the Powerkids event at the Powerhouse at New Farm. I went all the way there from the Gold Coast and discovered there wasn't much on today (Monday). Another family arrived at the same time as us and were really disappointed. It wasn't clear on the website that many of the activities - like the rock climbing and free events - weren't happening today. You should have displayed the proper program that was inside the door at the Powerhouse showing each day and the actual activities on for that day. My kids want to go back and see the little kids theatre performance and other activities but it has been an expensive trip already in petrol to find the event wasnt on!
