Back in Brisbane!
Get ready for stop two of the Finders Keepers East Coast Tour in sunny Brisbane, kicking off Friday from 12 noon! We’re thrilled to once again bring you a HUGE weekend of Australian art + design plus live local music, delicious food and interactive activities just for the kids.

From 12 noon, Friday is a winner for escaping weekend crowds. Perfect for families as well as parents n’ prams to conquer Christmas shopping with extra room for the little nippers to roam. An absolute hit in Melbourne, we welcome our new supporter Castle & Cubby to Brisbane who will be activating an exciting interactive zone for the young ones. The kids and their imaginations can run wild thanks to these incredibly cute cubbies sourced from recycled materials.
It wouldn’t be Finders Keepers without entertainment from some amazing local musicians and DJs, team Friday night drinks with live entertainment and shopping ’till 9pm! Following Friday’s fun we’ll be open all weekend – check for hours below!
In Brisbane we also celebrate and welcome our Indigenous Program recipient Anindilyakwa Arts, an arts and community centre for the remote communities of Groote Eylandt; Angurgu, Umbakumba, Bikerton Eylandt, as well as some from 4 mile outstation located by the beach and nurturing art and culture. Known for their bush dyed fabrics, weavings and jewellery made from collected shells and seeds, we cannot wait to have Anindilyakwa Arts at Finders Keepers Brisbane.
