Brisbane, Melbourne’s INCREDIBLE Candy Museum Is Coming Our Way

This is it, guys. It's happening and we're so ready for the biggest sugar rush of our lives. We hit you up here with news of Melbourne's Candy Museum way back in June, but if you couldn't make your way down to VIC to enjoy (or, like us, got to watch your colleagues have a bloody swell time jumping into candy-themed ball pits and jumping out of giant birthday cakes while you sat at your desk) it was kind of a bummer.

Now, it's our turn Brisbane, because Sugar Republic is the latest, greatest interactive candy museum is coming in hot! 

ICYMI, this place is kind of a giant homage to Australian sweets, ice-creams and desserts. Here's the deal: from September 23, get down to Valley Metro for the sweetest day of your life. Apart from getting free sugary snacks throughout the exhibit (that alone could have convinced us TBH), you and your group of friends can make your way through 12 'sensory rooms'. It’s like real life Candy Crush, only infinitely less frustrating.

There’ll a doughnut igloo, a fairy floss swing, a soft-serve ice-cream machine and a sherbet-filled rainbow bridge. Not to even mention the adult-size pink ball pit or the chance have a boogie in a human-sized gumball machine. No, really. You can’t make this stuff up.

Make sure that you snap a pic in front of the neon art wall before all your mates do. Selfies are encouraged, thankfully, cause this is the best your 'Gram feed is going to look all year.

Sugar Republic will be at Valley Metro from September 23. You're gonna see this A LOT on your social feeds, guys, so get on down and see what all the fuss is about. Get tix over here

Just don't tell your dentist...
