Just wondering if anyone can give some tips on things to do with a 2.5yo in Brisbane next week. We already have Australia zoo on the list. Need about 3 days worth of activities (so that's one down).
Also if anyone knows of any good places to eat around Spring Hill (or walking/public transport distance) that would be great too

Things to do: Wading in the Southbank pools and generally wandering around there. Roma Street parklands.
As for places to eat near Spring Hill: All I know is the Spring Hill Deli - is supposed to do great breakfasts and lunches.

Ok, the city botanic gardens are great for a run around and a picnic. There is an amazing new playground there too. The museum and art gallery (GOMA) often have kid friendly displays on. The museum is free if you don't go in the main exhibit. They currently have an awesome QLD dinosaurs display that is free. There is also a built in dinosaur play land. Southbank is good if you can handle crowds. Amazing kids water play but don't take too much stuff - people get their stuff nicked all the time because they leave it unattended to watch the kids. The state library has a kids zone that changes themes regularly. There is craft, music, story time and loads of stuff to play with.

Thanks so much - all brilliant suggestions! Where would be the best places for dinner? We will be there a sat/sun/mon/tues and are doing an IVF egg collection/holiday!

GOMA and state library on Southbank. Awesome and free! Also museum and science museum but my kids prefer GOMA and the state library. Roma St parklands are right near by Spring Hill and awesome for a walk and play. Catch a ferry to New Farm park. Swim at Southbank.

There's already been some great suggestions from others and Springhill is a good base to get around etc. My 2.5 year old loves the Mt Cootha Botanical gardens and the Planetarium there, it also has a big cafe which is child friendly.
The Science Centre is fun too.
Dinner wise, there are heaps of restaurants in the city and Southbank as well as the Valley (Fortitude Valley), my kids like the Southbank ones but I guess it depends on what sort of food you're into in terms of specific recommendations etc.
