North Lakes Colour Frenzy ‘Glow Edition’ is a fun and exciting untimed family friendly event that’s suitable for all ages. You can walk, jog or run your way through the course. This is a great opportunity to raise funds for a local charity.
Color Frenzy is a fun run for all ages and abilities. Participants can walk, jog or run the course at their own pace and choose whether to complete one or three laps of the track, with three laps equating to 5km.
This year’s event will be held at Lake Eden and will feature a special glow-in-the-dark powder and two new all-ages obstacles stations, as well as the usual foam station and river of bubbles. Participants can also enjoy a selection of market stalls and food vans.
The goal of the event is to raise money for animal rescues, which help rehome dogs like Princess. This year’s fundraiser will benefit Shamrock Rescue Brisbane, a local not-for-profit organization that specializes in the care and rehoming of northern dog breeds such as Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and Siberian Huskies.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through Ticketebo, which also sells tickets to other events in Queensland. Children under five are not required to purchase a ticket and will be admitted free of charge with a guardian holding a valid ticket.
Queensland State Fair
There’s an understated charm and character to Queensland that you won’t find anywhere else. Whether it’s a fine-dining feast, your favorite musician performing live in Australia’s most remote music festival, or an epic adventure on the world’s toughest IRONMAN course, you can experience it first-hand at the state’s special events.
There are lifestyle expos, major shows, agricultural and food festivals, cultural celebrations, community fairs, and much more happening all year round throughout metropolitan and rural areas across the state.
For example, the Brisbane Ekka is a must-see each August as farmers showcase their livestock and crops in the old wood and iron pavilions at the exhibition ground at Bowen Hills. Then there’s the grand parade, sideshow alley, and line-up of live entertainment to enjoy.
You can also go for a whirl on some of the big rides at the Covid-safe QLD State Fair at Pelican Park in Clontarf. There are plenty of quality rides to try including some of the favorites you would typically see at the Ekka, plus a choice of food vendors and fairground treats like dagwood dogs, fairy floss, and popcorn.
Alternatively, the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is a month-long floral fiesta each April that blooms with color and life in the city’s gardens. There’s also a food festival, sideshow alley, grand parade, and line-up of live entertainment to enjoy.
The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair is a unique way to discover the stories of Australia’s oldest living culture. This annual event celebrates indigenous artists and their work, offering visitors the opportunity to meet talented artists in person and hear about the inspiration behind their creations.
You can also get a glimpse into the rich history of the Gold Coast at the Gold Coast Museum and Gallery, which is hosting a fascinating exhibition called Gold Coasters – Our Story Through Art. It explores how the people of the Gold Coast have used art to express themselves and their identities, spanning more than 250 years. This free exhibition features a wide variety of artwork and artifacts, many of which are rarely seen outside of the Gold Coast region.
North Lakes Golf Club
A full golf course, North Lakes is a great place for both the beginner who’s having their first hit, and also the expert trying to refine their skill. The course is a par 70 and includes two large lakes, strategically placed bunkers, and a variety of challenging holes. Besides the course, there is a practice green and a driving range. In addition, the club offers a variety of food and drinks at the concessions.
Designed by Graham Marsh, North Lakes was one of the Brisbane area’s newer courses. It was built on a site squeezed uncomfortably between houses and what appear to be protected paddocks. As a result, it is not as nice a golfing experience as many other Graham Marsh designs. The fairways, for instance, are not as sculpted as is often the case, with players likening them to acres of green carpet. The greens are a different story, however. They are the first in Australia to incorporate TifEagle greens, which are cultivated to promote fast and true putting surfaces.
The event will feature a live band and a range of activities that are perfect for families and groups. Guests can dance the night away to great music or participate in family-friendly games including giant lawn games such as Jenga, Connect Four, and ping pong. The event will end with a spectacular fireworks display over the lake. Guests can also enjoy food and beverages from the many concessions at the festival. Those who wish to pay with cash will be offered a discount for the purchase of drinks and food. The golf course also offers a rewards program where visitors can earn points that they can use to pay for future cart and greens fees.
North Lakes Aquatic Centre
The North Lakes Aquatic Centre is way more than just your average swimming pool. It features a 25-meter lap pool, a custom-built heated indoor Learn to Swim pool, and a toddler splash play area. The center is open 7 days a week and offers swim classes for all ages and abilities.
The new Wellness Pool is a warm water pool designed for exercise and fitness classes such as water walking, Aqua Zumba, Deep Stretch Yoga, and more that are offered year-round. The pool also hosts local and regional swimming competitions.
For kids, there is a new playground and waterplay area called Aquativity which is full of fountains, tipping baskets, sprays, and fun. The park aims to educate children on the water cycle and promote environmental and conservation values.
