The Best Birthday Party Ideas For Toddlers In Brisbane

  • Mums & Bubs

Toddlers can be tough to plan parties for – they’re big enough to know what’s going on, but not big enough to do lots of the fun stuff yet. Luckily, there are some great venues across Brisbane that cater especially to the little tykes – and take the stress of Mum and Dad too. One will even come to you!

Some of our favourites birthday party ideas for toddlers are:

Fly By Fun

If staying at home is easier with little party-goers, but you are fresh out of ideas to keep them amused, Fly By Fun Brisbane Children's Entertainment can do it for you! If your child loves Paw Patrol or PJ Masks, The Wiggles or Bananas in Pyjamas, the expert entertainers from Fly By Fun will create an amazing experience. 

With a knack for engaging, interactive parties and an extensive collection to choose from, Fly By Fun are known for bringing popular characters to life - Frozen's Queen Elsa and Princess Anna are notable favourites! You could also opt for a theme like a Toy Story or Fairy party, or include face painting, a magic show or even a petting zoo!

Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society

Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society

If you’ve got a train lover, how about a party spent riding on trains at the Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society? They’ve got three areas available for parties including the popular Picnic Shelter, the fully-fences 5-Inch Station and the open space 'Beside Canteen'.  Of course, children can ride trains to their heart’s content. Trains run through the station on the mainline and for safety, at least one adult must ride on each train with small children.

Kids can ride the trains as many times as they like during your visit. All the parents at the party ride the trains for free! Tip: ensure your guests are wearing covered footwear so they’re allowed on the train.

Parties are BYO - you are welcome to bring along your own BBQ, tables and chairs and anything else you need.

Where: 1992 Wynnum Road, Wynnum West.
Cost: $5 per child. Minimum 10 children.

Southbank Brisbane

Southbank is a hive of activity with plenty of great open space that is kid-friendly and accessible to everyone, anytime.

It’s a great budget-friendly option - just bring some party food and let the kids go wild! You can always finish off the day with a ride in the Brisbane Eye for something dramatic.
