If Christmas lunch has left you stuck on the couch and you’ve decided it’s time to peel yourself away from the television, then take notes with these Boxing Day ideas.

Go chasing waterfalls

On a sunny day, pack a picnic and spend time amongst nature. Our favourite kid-friendly waterfall is Buderim Falls, Sunshine Coast. Enjoy a light scenic walk through the forest from Quorn Close or access the falls directly from Lindsay Road with boardwalk access that’s wheelchair friendly too.

Visit a gallery

The state libraries and museums will often stay open for most of Boxing Day, so take the kids out to learn something new! Not only will you get a cultural fix, it’s a good chance to do something that in our everyday lives we don’t always find time to do.
