North Harbour Heritage Park and Bite Markets have become must-visit destinations for families looking for a fun day out in Brisbane’s north, with a series of unique events hosted during 2021.
North Harbour’s scenic surroundings, ample open spaces, strong community spirit and accessible location are a perfect combination for organisers as well as attendees.
An exciting year of events ends on a high note when Opera Queensland performs classic Christmas carols at Bite Markets on Saturday 11 December.
The celebration is free for everyone to attend and includes the Carmichael College choir, a visit from Santa, Christmas markets packed with gift ideas and plenty of festive food to purchase from the Bite flavour makers.
The Shine Bright for Leukaemia walk put the ‘fun’ into fundraising with live entertainment, games and craft activities before the lantern parade honouring the journey of everyone affected by leukaemia.
Songs at Twilight was Opera Queensland’s first visit to North Harbour. The performers treated the crowd to an unforgettable vocal experience as the sun set over Heritage Park.
Local families joined politicians and the North Harbour team to plant 1,000 more trees along the Caboolture River as the community got their hands dirty to celebrate National Tree Planting Day.
The Family Fun Festival at Bite Markets included rides, side show games, a farm animal petting zoo and show bags as visitors of all ages enjoyed an EKKA-style series of nights out.
North Harbour Heritage Park was the perfect place to swing like a ninja and overcome obstacles like a spartan thanks to our partnership with the Australian Federation of Obstacle Sports (AFOS).
The impressive amount of space and the support of North Harbour’s experienced team made Heritage Park the ideal home for the Obstacle Sports Expo organised by AFOS President, Dan Andrikis.
“Having room to work is crucial when putting on an event like our Obstacle Sports Expo,” Dan explained. “At Heritage Park we were able to set up our large courses and still have plenty of car parking for visitors.
“The North Harbour team was a big help with COVID safety requirements, food vendors, security and other important issues which allowed us to focus on our own preparations.
“The scenic surroundings were another big plus point. The walking paths, bike trails and riverside location meant Expo visitors could stay to enjoy the rest of their day within Heritage Park.”
North Harbour’s extensive parklands and green spaces recently won top honours in the Parks and Recreation category at the prestigious 2021 UDIA Queensland Awards for Excellence.
