Head to Springfield to wander through the snow, build a snowman and throw snowballs at targets.
June 13, 2022
It doesn't snow in Brisbane. It doesn't usually get all that cold in winter, either, although 2022 has been putting that idea to the test. Still, for a few weeks this June and July, Brisbanites will be able to walk through snow, build a snowman, make snowballs and throw the latter at targets in an arcade — 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 2022. The idea is simple: this winter wonderland will bring a heap of real snow to the Orion Shopping Centre, then let anyone with a $25 ticket frolic through it, with the space open daily from 9.30am–4.30pm between Saturday, June 25–Sunday, July 10.
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.
