    I have started this thread so we can post about activities in and around Brisbane that are free or have very little cost...

    This weekend is the Mt Coot-tha Childrens Festival.. Starting at 10am and running until 2pm, and best of all it is free !!!

    Enjoy 4 hours of free activities and entertainment including riding ponies, cuddling baby animals, making puppets, hearing stories, meeting “Bubbles” the fairy and the wearable art tree that is home to Kwa-Kwa the Koala puppet, and watching balloon sculpture being made into exotic flowers and pirate swords. Also, stage entertainment includes “Animal Tails” children’s theatre (10.15am), guest appearance by Bruce and Denis Morcombe (11am), “Masala Dance” Bollywood dancing (11.30am), Smartie Pants the Clown and the Brisbane Municipal Concert Band conducted by David Jones (12.15pm) and African Drumming with Joseph Matovu (1.15pm).
