Anyone living in Hawthorne real estate will already know the area is one of the best places to live in Brisbane. If you've yet to check it out, take your kids along this weekend to explore the many activities available to young and old.
Originally an open-air cinema built in the early part of the century, the Balmoral Cineplex now has six cinemas with state of the art technology. Catch the latest movies on the big screen, with crisp sound and all the extras you would expect from a modern movie theatre.
Bulimba Memorial Park
This park is perfect for families of all ages and is very popular among locals. There's a climbing net structure for your little monkeys to play on, as well as a sporting oval for all sorts of ball games. Bring down your budding soccer, football and cricket stars for a run around, or simply let them play on the swings while you sit back with a coffee and supervise.
More than just a book rental facility, the Bulimba library hosts regular workshops, children and baby sessions and writing groups for the community to get involved in.
