There’s no doubt that storms have been on the horizon in Brisbane as of late. But before you let the stormy weather bring you down, consider the following to beat the blues:
- Take a trip to Spring Hill Baths
Just because it’s raining outside doesn’t mean you need to stay dry. Head into Spring Hill Baths and have an indoor dip while it’s raining outside.

When: Open week days except closing earlier on Fridays at 6pm – 6:30am to 7pm, Saturday 8am to 5pm, Sunday 8am to 5pm

- Head to Iceworld Boondall or Acacia Ridge
No need to sit around when it’s wet. How about an active day out ice skating?

- Opt For a Stay At Home Day
Sure, you can go out for some fun but why leave home when all you need is right there with you. Set up your living room with some made-up beds that you can put away when the weather gets better, or try some fun recipes from taste.com.au.
- Visit Your Local Westfield
Website: Chermside Mall
You can go out or head into town, or you could opt for heading to your local shops and spend the day in the cool aircon. We’ve picked Chermside Mall for those on the northside of Brisbane however if you live near Carindale or Garden City, there are also Westfield shopping centres close by.
- Head To The Cinemas
Cool down and watch a movie in an airconditioned cinema. Event cinemas are at various locations (usually in the big shopping centres) or the best value cinemas Cineplex at South Bank, Hawthorne and Balmoral.
