Celebrating? Looking for 2 year old birthday party venues in Brisbane? You’ve come to the right place to find the best list! We’ve scoured the city and the suburbs of Brisbane and we’ve compiled a list of the best places to hold a birthday party to celebrate your child’s 2nd birthday.

2 year old birthday party venues Brisbane

The key to the success of a party for 2 year old boys or 2 year old girls is the range and availability of things to do for not just the kids, but the parents and other adults. Trust me on this, you will want to find a happy medium wherever you can of variety for everyone attending! So you really have 2 choices – 1) places for birthday parties that cater mostly for kids or 2) places for birthday parties that cater mostly for adults. Here’s our best list in Brisbane:

1. Indoor play centres

This is the easy option for families looking for a birthday party venue that will suit mostly the kids attending. Within the indoor play centre option, you can either buy the ‘birthday party package’ which usually includes a party room, or you can just invite all the people and have a free for all in the play centre while securing a group of ‘general admission’ tables. The pre-arranged option will include party food, the ‘free for all’ will involve buying food at their canteen. If you have a large number of guests, you may like to book ahead your catering from the canteen. It is highly likely you will not be allowed to bring your own food!
