Things to do in Brisbane

Need something to to this weekend 🙂

Holey Moley in Fortitude Valley.


Those with a competitive side can put their golfing skills (or lack thereof) to the test at Holey Moley in Fortitude Valley. The venue is truly a ‘whole in one’ as it combines a cocktail bar with nine pop-culture themed mini-golf courses. Fight it out to take your place on the Iron Throne or resort to some old-fashioned arcade games to settle the score.

Cost:  $16.50 will get you 9-holes of tear-inducing laughter as you navigate the challenging putt-putt course.
