Play Hubs and Centres

Play Matters Australia has a range of play hubs and centres located across Queensland. Our hubs deliver programs and services that support children and families to connect and play.

Our play hubs and centres are located in Cairns, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Mt Isa, Redlands, Goodna, and Karalee.


Affiliate your play experience

Play Matters Australia offers affiliation for groups and organisations. Our play experts have established and supported thousands of play experiences across Australia for over 50 years, and we stand ready to support you.

We have developed a digital portal and tools to simplify starting and managing your own experience. New groups that start and affiliate with Play Matters Australia are provided with resources and support to maximise success and ensure long-term benefits for local communities.



Play Matters Australia operates its national evidence-based music therapy program, Sing&Grow, in Queensland. Program delivery involves partnering with existing services to ensure the longevity of outcomes for families and children.

If you are a community organisation, submit an expression of interest to partner with us as a ‘Host Organisation’ and bring Sing&Grow to families and children in your local area.
