What You Can Do to Make the Most of October in Brisbane

Friday October 6, 2023 ● By Rachel Sanft // Place Estate Agents

Spring in Brisbane has always brought the heat (physically and metaphorically) and lucky for you, there are plenty of events and activities to help you take advantage of this. If you’re keen on getting out and about, we’ve got you covered for this season.


Felon’s Cinema Sessions | Every Tuesday from 7pm until October 31

Your favourite riverside venue is doubling as a cinema this Spring and you do not want to miss it. Forget a conventional movie theatre and grab your mates for a flick on the river – free of charge!

Until October 31st, Felon’s Cinema Sessions will grace the Felons Barrel Hall every Tuesday evening from 7pm. A perfect opportunity to grab your mates, sink yourself into a bean bag and indulge in a complimentary bag of buttery popcorn, and perhaps a pint of Felons brew to wash it down.

The line-up of movies on offer showcases a perfect balance of ‘then and now’ to ensure everyone can get in on the fun. Dive into the world of fantasy with ‘Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince’ (October 10) or take the thrill level up a notch with ‘Shaun of the Dean’ (October 17) and ‘Evil Dead II and Evil Dead Rising’ (October 31) just in time for Halloween. On the brighter side, ‘Death at a Funeral’ (October 3) will leave you in stitches and if you haven’t already seen Barbie 2023 (what are you doing!), lucky for you, Felons has got you covered on October 24.

 Seating is first-in-best dressed, however, pre-booking will guarantee you a bean bag for only $25. This fee is fully redeemable on food and drink throughout the evening – it’s a win-win!


Lightscape Brisbane | Until Sunday October 8

Step into the transformed Brisbane Botanic Gardens for a multi-sensory light experience. Seeing large success in the UK and US, Lightscape will transport you to a world that feels far from Brisbane. 

Watch the bellowing treetops you know above you become a sky full of stars, the flowers and tree trunks that border the pathways gleam in neon light, or stroll under the hovering sky of glowing poppies. Tickets sell fast, don’t miss out! 


The Medibank Feel Good Program | Until November 30

If you’re looking to level up your physical and mental state, Medibank are offering free fitness classes in South Bank Parklands Flowstate precinct until the end of November.
