Taigum | Playful parks, cafés and more

You don’t need to venture far for a fun-filled day out in Fitzgibbon and Taigum. With plenty of parks, playgrounds and cafes, there’s countless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors while doing as much (or as little) as you want in Brisbane’s north

Discover a hidden world of parks in Fitzgibbon

Whether you have kids, or are just a big kid yourself, Fitzgibbon’s Hidden World Playground is a magical park with some seriously cool play equipment. Let their imagination run wild as they explore the colourful huts, climbable sand creatures, wobble bridges and slides. On the other side there’s a dedicated dog park so even your fur baby can enjoy the outdoors. Continue the fun up the road at Flinders Park, or head out on one of the bush paths that meander beside Cabbage Tree Creek at Taigum.

Fill your belly with coffee or curry

Escape the hustle and bustle with a trip to Espresso 351 in Taigum. The pooch-friendly café has a courtyard for relaxing while you tuck into one of their mouth-watering menu items. Pop by for a paint and sip class, or check-out the café's range of local products. When you're finished, head down the road to Taigum Square to stock-up on essentials, or over to Mungo Scott Park for a stroll among the trees.

Take a detour off the main drag for authentic Indian fare at Royal Rajputana, opposite the community centre in Fitzgibbon. Dine like royalty under the stars or grab takeaway to enjoy in the comfort of your own castle. The team is known for its array of delicious royal dishes, once reserved only for the princely kitchens of Rajasthan.

Dance like no-one's watching

Looking for something to entertain the kids? They’re sure to find their groove at Ellapointe Dance Studio in Taigum, with classes from tots to school aged, ranging from ballet, tap, hip hop and everything in-between. They could also try swimming at the Emily Seebohm Aquatic Centre, or joining an AFL team at the Sandgate Hawks.
