A great way to kick start the School Holidays

Looking for a little adventure these school holidays?
We  had ourselves a little day trip to the Queensland Museum today. Due to the fact that such a great time was had I couldn’t resist the temptation of sharing our day. We were also very fortunate to share our day in the company of some very special friends Glenn and Jennifer and their 3 little people. So 2 families of 5, 6 kidlets under 9 and everyone had a happy, exciting day. Tick, tick and tick!!!
I’m not going to write a novel like the Zamama recap post. Instead I am just going to let the pictures speak for themselves and give you the information you might like to use if you are thinking of heading that way.

TRANSPORTATION
We decided to drive, our other option was to drive to Robina and catch the train but we looked into prices and the more cost effective option was to drive.

PARKING
We parked at the Queensland Cultural Centre car park and it cost us $15 for all day parking, great value. Not sure if parking costs are different on weekdays?

FOOD
Snacks and water bottles were packed. We treated ourselves to lunch at a nearby Café (there are lots close by). Then of course we headed over to South Bank Parklands where there are more places to dine and most importantly for us grab an
ice-cream.

MUSEUM COSTS
General admission is free. If you choose to visit the sciencentre (within the museum) like we did all the costing is here, I highly recommend visiting this centre, I think it was the highlight of the day for Zakidlets and Zabiggies enjoyed it too! You’ll also get the option of attending a 20 minute interactive science show, today’s was all about sound.
There is also a Deep Oceans exhibition on at the moment, we chose just to keep things simple and stuck with the sciencentre but if you have school age children only I would do both. The Museum offers a Mega ticket deal if you choose to go this way.

I give you some of the many fun moments we had during the course of our little day trip adventure!

And more cockroaches

Below I had to take a picture of such a treasure. I shared this picture earlier this afternoon on Facebook and have since found out there are quite a few still in existence in homes of some of my gorgeous readers, it made my night having such information shared back to me.

The old sunbeam mix master

And of course I was drawn to the “Tea”, need I say more than that!

Would we go back? DEFINITELY

Would we do anything differently? NOT ONE THING

City sights in the background

Just go for it lovely ones, you’ll have a ball.
Have you or are you doing something to kick start your holidays? I’d love to hear your ideas. I’m guessing there would be some campers out there with the upcoming Easter break nipping at our heels, I haven’t been game enough to venture down the camping road since having Zakidlets, you never know though, my motto is try anything once, adventures are great!

Stay tuned for my next post, I’ll be sharing the “Poached Fish in Coconut Cream” recipe. Perfect for a Good Friday dish!
Until then……….
