Housed within the expansive 4,000sqm purpose-built ‘Northshore Pavilion’,  the building looks to go on and on!

6. It’s meant to give Brisbane a mega tourist boost

Bluey is a worldwide success and Michael Healy, Queensland Tourism Minister, expects people from all over to flock to Brisbane and check out Bluey’s World. If you’re visiting Brisbane and have young kids, it’s pretty much a must-go!

Bluey’s World will be truly captivating, giving fans an unforgettable and immersive experience, it is such a draw card to drive visitation to Queensland,” Healy said. 

“We’re a family-friendly destination and we know that once the family have lived and played like our favourite Heelers at Bluey’s World, that they’ll get out and explore our state, which is Bluey’s world – for real life.

This special event is so highly anticipated on our calendar, we expect more than 200,000 visitors will enjoy Bluey’s World in its inaugural year, injecting more than $18 million into the local economy.”

We are so excited to see Bluey’s World open its doors! If the Hammerbarn/Bunnings madness is anything to go by, we predict it will be a huge success!
