Here at ellaslist, we’re all about providing you with the latest and greatest things to do, see and visit in and around Brisbane – and that includes events, festivals and performances.

Unfortunately though, due to the rapidly changing status of the global coronavirus pandemic, many of the activities we’ve all been looking forward to have been postponed, or cancelled, in order to reduce the virus’ spread, and prevent our hospitals from exceeding capacity.

In an already confusing time, understanding the true meaning of phrases like “social distancing” and “self-isolation” can feel daunting, especially as school holidays approach, and the threat of schools being cancelled indefinitely looms.

As well as providing you with the best options to keep your family active, entertained and engaged during the coming weeks and months, we’ll also do our best to keep you up to date with what’s been cancelled or postponed, and what’s still on and open in and around Brisbane.
