If you are a work at home mum, there’s no doubt about it, juggling work and kids is hard. Sometimes, for your sanity, you just need to get out of the house for some different scenery and to let the kids burn some energy. As a Brisbane/Ipswich local, I think the best place to do these things, in my opinion, is to visit one of the many indoor play centres in Brisbane.
It’s here your kids will stay occupied for just enough time for you to catch up on the work you need without pulling your hair out. You know they’re safe, there’s air conditioning, good coffee and free WiFi, so you don’t have to rely on your crappy phone signal to send emails!
But not all Brisbane play centres are made equal because not all of them have free Wi-Fi, which is why I’ve put together this list for you.
Indoor play centres in Brisbane with free Wi-Fi
Rainbow City Underwood
At Rainbow City Underwood your kids will find soft play and big play structures galore, particularly great for kids under 8. It’s lovely and colourful, air-conditioned and the perfect spot for your kids to have fun while you work with the free Wi-Fi. There’s also a café on site with light meals, coffee, cakes and snacks.
Open 9 am to 3.30pm Monday to Wednesday
Open 9 am to 4 pm Thursday to Saturday
Sunday and Public Holidays Closed
Unit F, 5-15 Lapis Street, Underwood 4119 Qld
Lollipops Playland Strathpine
Lollipops Playland Strathpine even advertises it on their website, ‘This is the perfect location to let the kids play to their heart’s content while you enjoy some well-earned downtime with a coffee and free Wi-Fi facilities.’ That’s my kinda play centre!
This place looks super cool with modern, multi-level, child-friendly play frames as well as climbing equipment, slides, swings and jumps – all safe of course!
Open 9 am to 5.30 pm daily (except public holidays)
104 Gympie Rd, Strathpine QLD 4500
When Master E was a toddler, Funkee Monkees was my favourite indoor play centre to visit in Brisbane; it’s a toddler’s play paradise.
Funkee Monkees was always nice and clean; the café has great food and coffee, it’s nice and small so you can always keep your kids in sight and, most importantly, it has free Wi-Fi!
Open 9 am to 3 pm Monday to Saturday
Shop 2, 135 Orange Grove Rd, Coopers Plains, QLD, 4108
Another indoor play centre in Brisbane on my favourite list is Jindalee Jungle. I love this place because it caters to my toddler and my six-year-old with its different play areas yet I can keep an eye on both of them. It’s always been perfect for a work at home mum like me with free Wi-Fi, plenty of tables, a café that serves coffee (critical) and a wide variety of food and play equipment that keeps my kids happy for ages.
9 am to 5 pm Monday to Sunday (excluding public holidays).
Shop 32, Jindalee Home Base, 34 Goggs Road, Jindalee
Now if you’re sitting at home reading this with your kids calling out your name, don’t forget a change of scenery next time to one of these indoor play centres in Brisbane. It’ll be a sanity saver!
