MoB Kids: Clock Tower Tours

Experience the magic of a Museum of Brisbane Clock Tower tour. Step into the original 1930s hand-operated lift, travel past the Art Deco-styled clock face and arrive at the final platform 64 metres above ground level for a bird’s-eye view of the city. There is a reason this has been time-honoured tradition for Brisbane families for almost 90 years.

Tours take place every 15 minutes from 10.15am.

Demand for Clock Tower tours means spots are allocated daily on a first come, first served basis. There are no reservations. Hint: Museum of Brisbane opens at 10am. Arrive early for school holiday activities and get your tickets at the front desk on arrival.

Ping Pong a Thon Ipswich

Ipswich

There are 45.8 million men, women, teens and children in the world today who are SLAVES.

45.8 million people with hopes and dreams, who want their lives to matter, to mean something MORE – just like you and me!

Poverty and harsh circumstances have made them vulnerable to the greed of others to be bought and sold like products off a supermarket shelf.

They show courage beyond understanding just to survive another day.

There are 45.8 million underdogs in our world.

Who courageously WAIT.

For RESCUE.

For HOPE.

For JUSTICE.

For FREEDOM.

We Pong because EVERY person matters.

We Pong because every person deserves the chance to live a life that is FREE.

We Pong for the Underdog.
