What's on at Kids Collective - South Bank Parklands

There’s plenty to do at South Bank Parklands on any given day, but Thursdays are a must for kids aged up to five. That’s because Kids Collective, a series of free children’s activities, is on from 9am-1pm.

Kids Collective

Activities change every week, so you can hone your child’s existing skills or teach them something new! They can paint a masterpiece, chase a soccer ball, learn to dance, unleash their super-hero powers and so much more.

Bookings are not required and classes are re-set at regular intervals, so you can come and go as you please. To plan your day, check out the details below. And if you have older kids in tow, make sure you visit Roma Street Parkland’s activities, held during the school holidays. Please note that due to seasonal events, Kids Collective is not on at South Bank or Roma Street Parkland during December and January.
