Head to Springfield to wander through the snow, build a snowman and make snowballs.
June 22, 2021
It doesn't snow in Brisbane. It doesn't really get all that cold in winter either. But, until the chilliest season on the annual calendar is over for this year, Brisbanites can still walk through snow, build a snowman and make snowballs — all by heading to Springfield.
No, the weather won't be extra frosty just in the westside suburb. No, we're not living in a Hollywood disaster movie. Rather, Snow4Kids is returning for 2021. The idea is simple: this winter wonderland will bring a heap of real snow to the Orion Shopping Centre, then let anyone with a $20 ticket frolic through it, with the space open daily from 9.30am–4.30pm between Saturday, June 19–Sunday, July 11.
This is a family-friendly event, as the name gives away. If you have littlies to bring along, that'll be welcome news. If you're an adult without any kids in tow, you're still able to head along — but the organisers ask that you be mindful of the fact that you'll have plenty of pint-sized company. Also: no snowball fights.
