Brisbane is set to be home to a one-of-a-kind immersive experience based on the much-loved Australian kids show, Bluey.
Bluey’s World, set to open in August 2024, will offer kids and parents the opportunity to journey through life-size sets of Bluey’s home and scenes from popular episodes, complete with interactive play and a “mesmerizing soundscape”.
The new tourist attraction will be housed in the 4,000 square metre pavilion on Northshore, near the suburb of Hamilton.
Created by Australian Joe Brumm, Bluey has become a global hit that is now broadcast in more than 60 countries.
Following the adventures of Bluey, a young Blue Heeler dog who lives with her Mum Chilli, Dad Bandit, and little sister Bingo, the animated series has become a hit with both kids and parents and is often praised for tackling series subjects through heart, humour and relatable family moments.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Brisbane was the obvious choice for Bluey’s World.
“Brisbane is at Bluey’s core and now the show is a global sensation, we want to invite fans from around the world to come and experience Bluey’s home,” the Premier said.
“Queensland is a world-class place to live and play and I truly believe that is a big part of why Bluey has captured fans around the world.”
Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said Bluey had “captured the imagination of families worldwide” and the “unique and significant tourism offering” would bring people from all over the world to Brisbane.
“We’re proud to support this world-first event, which will create local jobs and inject millions into our economy, with our restaurants, hotels and tourism experiences benefiting from the influx of excited Bluey fans,” the Lord Mayor said.
Bluey’s World will be produced by BBC Studious and HVK Productions, and is being supported by both the Queensland government and Brisbane City Council.
HVK’s Andrew Kay said the tourist attraction promised to “delight audiences of all ages”, providing visitors with the opportunity to “step inside Bluey’s home, and immerse (themselves) in the joy of this beloved TV show.”
