2. Deep Oceans

Deep oceans, Underwater, queensland museum
COme play with a giant squid and other sea creatures


Have fun learning all about the deep secrets below earths surface. They say that is is a dark, cold world - where only three people have travelled to. And some would suggest that we know more about Mars than our deep oceans.

This mysterious exhibition is a must see for adults and children alike. Come and marvel at the strange real-life creatures - along with myths and legends - yes that's right those fearsome monsters of the dark, deep, ocean!

While you are there you can see a Giant Squid, meet real-life creatures that have inspired sea monster myths and legends, test the effects of water pressure on your arm, step inside a life-size bathysphere, and hear audio accounts of dives.

The details:

Friday 13 until Sunday 15 June 2014
2 hour performance including 20 minute interval
Queensland Museum: Corner of Grey & Melbourne Streets, South Bank, South Brisbane
Tickets: Prices range from $39 to $59

3. Bounce to get Fit and Fun! Bounce Inc

Get bouncing


Join in this new craze that keeps us entertained while increasing our heart rate (and health and fitness).

This spring-loaded urban playground features more than 100 interconnected trampolines over 500 square metres of circus-grade padding and air bags. What fun!

And while you may think it screams danger: "We remove those hazards by replacing them with circus frame padding. Instead of falling from the trampoline to the ground, you fall from one trampoline to another!". They also have fully-trained staff there to help kids bounce around the place.

They do all sorts of bouncing, including, birthday parties, dodge ball, and bounce fit. More info is on their website.

They also have Bounce After Dark Events for the older kids.

The details:
40 Enterprise Place, Tingalpa QLD 4173
Open Hours:
Mon - Thurs: 10am - 9pm
Fri: 10am - 11pm
