If you’re spending the holidays locally this year, why not take a day trip to Caloundra and the Glass House Mountains area.
Caloundra Regional Gallery will have an exciting new exhibition on from 11 December – 7 February called 'Constructing Landscape: urban visions' which will feature a delightful collection of artworks from regional and national muralists and street artists. Plus, the kids will love the art trail and there’s a free art bag for children aged 4 – 12.
What about a good old-fashioned game of skittles, quoits, Jenga or jump rope? Why not challenge the family to a game these holidays at Bankfoot House! You can bring a picnic and relax in the garden with stunning views of the Glass House Mountains, the kids can make a mini Cobb & Co coach to take home and you can also take a free guided tour and learn all about the history of Bankfoot House. Entry is free and it’s open Friday-Sunday from 10am-3pm (closed from Christmas Day, re-opening January 8.).
Pop into Beerwah and let the kids try out the popular playground at Turner Park, with its 8.5 metre tall multi-level play tower, toddler play area, all abilities carousel, flying fox and more.
Then head to the historic town of Landsborough (Pioneer and Skippy Parks are not far away), wander along the emerging new look Cribb Street, grab a coffee, explore the quaint shops, Instagram the mural painted by local artist Claire Matthews (known as Fuzeillear) and check out the awesome Landsborough Museum.
Finally, I would like to wish everybody and safe, happy and creative festive season. 2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year for us all and now is an important time to reconnect and refresh. I wish you all the very best for 2021.
