Top Picnic Spots in Brisbane – A Great Experience!

As Covid-19 is slowly easing restrictions around the world, Australia has come out of it fairly well and is a great place to consider spending your holidays especially if you have young kids and are looking for areas with wide-open spaces where your kids can enjoy a picnic while social distancing.


Charlish Park Redcliffe

Plenty of Brisbane hotel apartments are located within easy distance from all the great parks like Charlish Park, Redcliffe. For example, Oaks Brisbane on Charlotte Suites is located just 45 minutes' drive from Charlish Park. The park is situated right next to the family-friendly settlement Cove lagoon and offers plenty of wonderful grassy areas for children to play in.


Daisy Hill Conservation Park

Daisy Hill Conservation Park has a great picnic area as well as the Daisy Hill Trail Hub which is a wonderful place to spend the weekend with your children there are plenty of barbecue facilities as well as picnic areas and great tracks for either a walk or biking up into eucalyptus first. What your children will love about Daisy Hill Conservation Park is that it is one of the conservation areas of Australia's most significant koala populations in the region and thus you are quite likely to find a koala in the trees. It's a great place to pack a picnic and sit out in the greens with your children enjoying a quiet day.


Highgate Hill Park

Highgate Hill park is best known for plenty of free parking and sun as well as shade where you can hang out and have what is possibly the best picnic overlooking the Hills. The gazebo is 62 metres above sea level So you will have quite a fantastic view of the skyline of the city that rivals even that of kangaroo point cliffs. Unfortunately, there are no barbecue facilities available which make it even better as you can pack a lunch and enjoy an evening watching the sunset over the city of Brisbane.


J.C Slaughter Falls

Despite its rather morbid name, Slaughter Falls is a must-visit part of the Mount Coot-tha Reserve in Brisbane. Not only is it the very cradle of nature and spectacular serene surroundings but there's also the beautiful waterfall and plenty of vegetation and rainforest through which you can check out a fun bushy walk trail or spend some time having a barbecue. There are plenty of facilities available at the reserve including car parks toilets, taps and picnic tables. If there happens to be any sudden rain, there are plenty of shelter sheds where you can take shelter and then it clears out.


Jolly's Lookout

Jolly's Lookout is the vantage point of Mount Nebo from which you can look over almost 4 kilometres each way along the Thylogale track. There are plenty of beautiful rainforests mountains as far as the eye can see and a large grass area with facilities such as toilets and barbecue tables and seating areas for you and your children.
