See Brisbane through Bluey's eyes

'Bluey and Bingo Live Interactive Experience' at a Green Heart Fair, Victoria Park (2023)

Beloved Australian cartoon, Bluey, has captured the hearts of children and adults across the globe. With Brisbane as the backdrop to the series, get to know the locations that have inspired your favourite episodes and see Brisbane through Bluey's eyes.

Park bucket list

With more than 2180 parks across the city, it's no surprise that a few have inspired scenes in Bluey

Have fun while being protected from the sun at Benjamina Place Park at The Gap. It's the spot that Bingo and Dougie play in 'Turtleboy'. Kids can now play sun-safe for even longer with the new shade sail installed as part of Brisbane City Council's Sun-safe suburban playground program.

New Farm Park is a favourite park with families. Barbecue by the river, let the kids run around on the expansive lawns, or take inspiration from Bingo and practise your ballet moves in the rotunda as seen in 'Spygame'.

From Wittonga Park in The Gap setting the scene for 'Cricket' to the giant frog with a pink tongue slide at Orleigh Park, West End making an appearance in 'Seesaw', see how many Bluey parks you can find and visit.

Seaside adventures

Thought Buddy's birthday party looked fun in 'Pass the Parcel'? Pack the esky and head to the Wynnum Aqua Park with the family to play amongst the water-spurting whales and wading pools. Be sure to wander down the Wynnum Heritage Trail while you're in the area!

Explore the Paddington Terraces

Stroll down Latrobe Terrace, Paddington and explore the many boutique shops and small businesses that line the street. Once you've worked up an appetite, stop for a bit to eat at The Java Lounge, believed to be the inspiration for the cafe in 'Dance Mode' and 'Favourite Thing'.

Don't forget to find all 16 Kookas scattered along Given and Latrobe Terraces before you leave this precinct!

Spend a day at the library

While there are 33 Council libraries across Brisbane, one in particular will be familiar to Bluey fans. Ashgrove Library is the backdrop for 'Promises', complete with a cafe and playground nearby. 

Sign up for free library membership while you're there to access a huge range of physical and digital resources.
