Melbourne Events and Activities for Families and Kids – April 2014

I’m experimenting with a new weekly blog post – it’ll be a listicle of family and kid-friendly events happening around Melbourne suitable for under 5s (as my kids are 3 years old and 1 year old). I figured since I keep a list of events for my own reference I might as well share my […]

HOT: Discovery Science and Technology Centre, 7 Railway Pl, Bendigo

Discovery Science and Technology Centre is a not-for-profit, community-based attraction based in one of Bendigo’s old brick red railway goods sheds. The space is a low-fi affair and the hands-on exhibits are of the sort that I remember from my childhood spent in museums. There’s no computer/touch screen whizz-bang interactiveness to be found but the kids will […]

Where to celebrate Chinese New Year with kids

Happy Year of the Horse! Chinese New Year is a special time for our family because we’re half Chinese :) Even if you’re not of Asian descent it’s a great time in Melbourne for firecrackers, lion dances and lots of yummy food! Here’s a list of CNY festivals in Melbourne in date order which are […]

HOT: Melbourne Now, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

   If you haven’t heard of or visited Melbourne Now yet, get out from under your rock!

HOT: The Wiggles Exhibition, Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris Street, Ultimo, Sydney

If you’re lucky enough to visit or live in Sydney with young kids, then you MUST take them to the The Wiggles Exhibiton which is currently showing at the kid-friendly Powerhouse Museum. The Wiggles require no introduction and when I told Lady AB that we were going to a Museum to see a Wiggles exhibition her […]

HOT: Clouds by Emma Salzano, Artplay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

One of the reasons I enjoy going to activities at Artplay is that it is dedicated time to play and engage with my kids. It’s a good way to schedule in fun outside the daily grind of feed-play-sleep-feed-play-sleep. Being the second baby, Baby 2.0 has had fewer opportunities to have one-on-one play time so I […]

HOT: Paris to Provence Festival, Como House & Garden, Cnr Williams Road & Lechlade Avenue, South Yarra

Paris to Provence, Melbourne’s favourite festival celebrating all things French, is back in the bucolic surrounds of National Trust’s Como House this weekend. There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year). Given the spacious surrounds it’s a great place to take the kids so […]

HOT: Children’s Week Picnic, Werribee Park, Gate 2, K Road, Werribee

When I was small and asked my parents why there was Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day but no Children’s Day, their reply (which they must teach at Parenting 101) was ‘Every day is Children’s Day.’ So I was quite surprised to discover that there was such a thing as Children’s Week. In fact, it’s a […]
