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 son or daughter’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! Find your local indoor play centre that offers party options here.

2. South Bank Parklands

1st Birthday Party Venues for Kids in Brisbane

South Bank is a great family space, offering so much to do! What we love about this destination for one of our favourite 2 year old birthday party venues if that there is something for everyone. On a warm day there is water play and swimming, on a cooler day, their fantastic multi-ability playground. You can bring your own food here too, which is a great money saver or if you are looking for convenience, there are so many takeaway  food options at one of the many food vendors around the parklands. Top off the whole day with a ride on the Brisbane Eye. One of South Bank’s great advantages is ease of access to public transport or if you are inclined to drive, use a Secure Parking car park and use FAMILIES as your discount code at checkout for a further 25% off the discounted online price.

3. Roma Street Parkland

Roms Street Parkland has two great playgrounds, one is quite new-ish, the other has been around for a while. The new playground is slightly larger and VERY popular with kids of all ages. There is tonnes of space for you to bring a picnic and enjoy the facilities of the area. Check out our review and video here before you make your choice!

4. A train birthday party

Do you have a Thomas the Tank Engine fan to party-plan for? There are two easy options for birthday parties for train lovers:

The Bracken Ridge Central Steam/Electric Railway

Proudly run and operated by the Bracken Ridge Central Lions Club with all proceeds going back to the community. Trains run on the 4th Sunday of each month from 9am – 2pm in McPherson Park, Denham Street, Bracken Ridge at a cost of $2 a ride or 10 rides for $10. They offer birthday parties for those looking for something different. Contact their Train Day co-ordinator Graham Titman on gltitman47@gmail.com for details or find them on Facebook. Bring along a picnic lunch, bring the family and make it a great family day out.

Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society

At $5 per child, with a minimum party booking of 10, treat them to unlimited train rides at the Brisbane Bayside Steam Railway Society headquarters. Located at Wynnum, their website provides more information and contact details. These two ideas are perfect for 2 year old birthday party venues.

5. Your own backyard

Yup! Not even joking! If your two year old could tell you where their favourite place was, I bet they would say ‘home’. So why not celebrate your child’s 2nd birthday party at home where they feel most comfortable? We’ve got a bunch of ideas for party bags, party entertainers and party products and services that you can hire to add a touch of pizzazz to a home party.

We love these yard games that will last forever. So why not invest in some ‘at home fun’ that will last longer than that one special day! Click here to see the range of backyard games.

6. Flipside Circus birthday parties [No longer offering parties for 2yos but consider for 5 years and older]

Yes! A circus birthday party! Alas, Flipside is no longer catering for parties for 2yos, but you can still book a party for 5s and over.

Flipside Circus birthday parties encourage the children to help each other, play together and most importantly – to have a great time in an active and healthy environment. Your 2 hour party will be facilitated by professional circus trainers who develop a fun filled program including group games, individual activities including tissu, juggling, hula hoops, trapeze and trampoline and culminates in a special performance with costumes provided by Flipside Circus.  You can provide your own catering and decor including birthday cake and party bags, to ensure the dietary and style requirements of different children are met. One of our favourite birthday party venues!
