About the Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct
Kingston Butter Factory is a great place for families to share fun times together, and much of it is free. The historic Butter Factory site has been transformed into Logan’s landmark cultural precinct featuring a year-round program of arts, festivals and entertainment.
Located just a short 30-minute drive from the heart of Brisbane or 40-minutes from Southport on the Gold Coast, it’s the perfect spot for a fun day trip! KBF is also situated right next to the Kingston Train Station, so why not treat to kids to a train ride.
Foster your child’s creativity with a trip to the newly renovated Butterbox Theatre. Their program includes dance, drama, circus and music as well as post-show workshops and activities to extend the experience. Stay on for a picnic on the green or a bite to eat at the on-site café.
Outdoors, there’s a large modern stage where big events take place. From lively market days and delightful children’s festivals, to free music concerts, family movie nights, and enchanting Christmas carols. There’s always something happening to entertain and inspire your children!
The Living Museum of Logan
During the week, you can explore the Living Museum of Logan. This contemporary social history museum is a place where you can see, hear, and experience the stories of the people who have made the City of Logan what it is today.
Here, Logan’s diverse communities tell their own stories in their own words with changing displays that include the foods, and fashions of the city. Browse the First Nations space and hear digital stories from Logan’s elders. If you want to dive deeper into the exhibitions, you can even book a special tour led by one of the Museum’s enthusiastic team members.
The Living Museum of Logan is free to visit. It is open from 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday to Saturday. You can also browse the Museum when there are events or performances on at the Kingston Butter Factory.
