So you’re back at work and Christmas already feels but a distant memory. We hear you. And yeah, it kind of sucks. What we all need is a dose of good old fashion fun, and Brisbane just so happens to have it in droves this week, armed with some cracking events that will rekindle a little post-festive cheer.

From outdoor movie screenings, to giant science experiments and bohemian French concerts, here are 5 awesome things to do in Brisbane this week.

All Week

Hadron Collider Exhibition

The most talked about science experiment ever, for the sake of your own knowledge (don’t we owe it to ourselves to learn new stuff?), you have to check out the Hadron Collider installation. Fresh off the boat from the Science Museum in London, check out how scientists created the first ever atom accelerator while learning about some pretty neat science-y stuff. Sounds geeky, but holy hell is it cool.

When: Until 25th April 2017
Where: Queensland Science Museum

Sugar Spin: You, Me Art & Everything

Haven’t wished QaGOMA a happy 10th birthday yet? Well you really should, because they’ve got one big ol' party going on all this month! Your mission this week in Brisbane is to check out Sugar Spin; a calorifically colourful, eclectic mix of more than 250 interactive visual and playful art installations that have taken over the gallery. From a giant whirly slide, to a huge Lego installation, it’s a riot.

When: Until 17th April 2017
Where: QaGOMA
Tickets: it’s free! For all the details, click here.

Lifeline Bookfest 2017

Bookworms assemble! The infamous Lifeline Bookfest is back, so arm yourselves with an empty bag or two and make some room on your bookcase—you’re going to need it. Held in the BCEC, rifle though literally thousands of pre-loved titles and grab yourself a literary bargain. Rory Gilmore would be proud…
