Where to beat the heat in Logan

You don’t need to stay at home to keep cool this season as there are plenty of ways to cool off. Here’s our pick of fun activities to beat the heat.

Splash around at a water park

Flagstone Park is an oasis in the summertime with a climbable treehouse, standing water buckets, water jet shooters and waterfalls. Logan Gardens is another popular option. If you’re looking for more adrenaline, escape to Bayside Wake Park where water enthusiasts can wakeboard, kneeboard, or tube.

Take a dip in a pool

Now that summer is in full swing, grab your swimmers and head to one of Council’s aquatic centres. From kiddie pools with fountains to Olympic-sized pools, there’s something for everyone.

Explore the great indoors

Escape the heat into air-conditioned comfort at these Council venues. Admire the latest exhibitions at Logan Art Gallery, sign up for a workshop at your local library, enjoy a show at Logan Entertainment Centre or learn more about our city’s contemporary social history at the Living Museum of Logan.

Pat and play with a shark and ray

Learn about marine animals, get in the water, and play with sharks and stingrays at Shark and Ray Gardens.

Sip on a summer staple

If it’s too hot to move, pull up a seat at your local café for a relaxing day out. Sip on a glass of iced coffee at some of our city’s finest cafes like Slacks Creek’s Extraction Artisan Café or Underwood’s Bake It.

Run, jump, and climb indoors

Loganholme’s Chipmunks Playland features multi-level structures and a mega slide that will keep your little ones cool and entertained all day. If you’re looking for more thrills, head to Underwood’s Area 51 where adults can join in on the fun.

Relax and unwind at a day spa

Unwind with crystal magnesium infused spas, outdoor showers and saltwater swimming pools at Loganholme’s Muse Bath House.

Enjoy a refreshing treat

Nothing beats an ice-cold drink on a hot summer day – our favourites include bubble teas from Underwood’s Excellent Cup, milkshakes from Jimboomba’s Crunchy’s Dessert Cafe and icy craft beers from Underwood’s Monkey Tree Brewery.

Knock down some pins

Logan City Tenpin is for anyone searching for fun and a break from the heat. This family-friendly bowling alley has it all: bumper cars, amusement machines and an on-site café when you need to refuel.

Spend a day at a shopping centre

Cool off, watch a movie, or window shop at air-conditioned centres like Logan Hyperdome or Browns Plains Grand Plaza.
