The City of Logan’s school holiday boredom busters

We’ve all been there… school holiday time and those dreaded words: I’M BORED!

Well thanks to the City of Logan, there are plenty of options that’ll keep all the kids (and hey, even the adults) entertained this school break.

Shark and Ray Gardens

Offering interactive experiences every hour, no bookings necessary, you can meet marine life like Doug, the eastern shovelnose ray, and Lucky, the little bluespotted marsh ray.

Paul Baker’s love for these friendly fish is unmistakable and he’ll talk you through the personality traits and dispositions of each and every one.

Shark and Ray Gardens is within Nielsen’s Native Nursery at 49-51 Beenleigh Redland Bay Road, Loganholme. You can reach them online here or at 3806 1414.

Kingston Park Raceway

Chances are you’ve heard of this place… especially considering it’s one of the most technologically advanced go-kart tracks in the country.

There are actually three tracks here: The Indy Track for drivers age 5 to 10 years with rookie karts (single and dual-drive options); The Monte Carlo Track for drivers from age 10 to 15 years with more advanced karts; and finally the Le Mans Track for ages 16 and over with Schumacher karts… the best in the biz.

Kingston Park Raceway is at 20 Mudgee Street, Kingston. You can reach them online here or at 3826 2255.

Bayside Wake Park

A wake park with not a boat in sight, you can perfect your wakeboarding skills with cable skiing. They also offer clinics on the weekends for those who are just starting out, so it’s suitable for beginners right through to the most experienced rider. There are even obstacles to get those pros airbound.

Located only 30 minutes from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, it’s a great spot to spend the morning, afternoon, or why not the whole day?

Bayside Wake Park is at 80 Ferry Road, Carbrook. You can reach them online here or at 3287 7777.
