Jazzamatazz at the Spiegeltent, Arts Centre Melbourne – Giveaway!

I love the Spiegeltent as a venue for children’s concerts and I’m looking forward to attending more concerts during the Spiegeltent’s Melbourne 2013 season when Lady AB and I enjoy a morning of jumpin’, jiving’ jazz as part of Jazzamatazz. The hour long concert is for 2-12yr olds and promises to include jazzy beats and trashy […]

HOT: Barbie Dreamhouse Children’s Tiffin Morning Tea, Aria Bar and Lounge, The Langham Melbourne, 1 Southgate Ave, Southbank

Features: high chairs; pram access; disabled toilets for pram access; kids menu; and children’s activities. When I told Lady AB that we were going out for afternoon tea her eyes lit up and she said ‘cake?’. I nodded. And then it was ‘cake! cake! cake!’ all the way in the car, up the escalators, at […]

HOT: Melbourne Aquarium, cnr Flinders St and King St, Melbourne

I haven’t been to Melbourne Aquarium in over 10 years and let’s be honest from the outset – unless you’re a visitor to Melbourne and/or looking for a kid-friendly activity there’s no other reason for you to go. While on a binary scale of HOT or NOT I’d consider it a HOT, even if you […]

HOT: Chan’s Dumpling Festival, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2013, Treasury Gardens, Melbourne

This year is the first year we’ll be attending the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival en famille. The kid-friendly events in the festival program have never been on my radar before so I’m not sure whether it’s a new category, but it’s great to see that the festival is embracing the fact that families like to eat! One of […]

HOT: Howard Dawson Reserve, 324-366 Burke Rd, Glen Iris

If you don’t have kids, or even toddlers, it’s likely that a playground would have to be very impressive indeed before it caught your attention. Before Lady AB could walk we had a reasonable idea where the green spaces were in our community – a nice place for a BBQ with friends once every couple […]

HOT: Central Gardens playground, 32 Henry St, Hawthorn

Central Gardens in Hawthorn is otherwise known as the ‘Rocket Park’ because the first thing you notice is the tall rocket climbing frame gracing the small playground. It’s a charming play area which has the usual selection of equipment – swings, slides, a seesaw and climbing structures – as well as more unusual items like the […]

HOT: Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Icecreamery, 35 Old Healesville Rd (cnr Melba Highway), Yarra Glen

Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Icrecreamery is a family-friendly destination in the heart of Yarra Glen. The property’s main attraction is a stylish, shaded building housing a chocolate factory, shop and cafe. The cafe spans indoor (air conditioned) and outdoor areas with views overlooking the rolling environs of the valley. Inside there are free chocolate tastings and of course chocolate shopping, […]

HOT: Terrific Toddler Tuesdays, Werribee Open Range Zoo, K Road, Werribee

Werribee Open Range Zoo is a kid-friendly mini-African safari only 30 minutes from Melbourne CBD and a great day out for the family. I get a bit depressed looking at caged animals so seeing them in (gated) open fields is much more appealing to me. The zoo has storybook African animals such as lions, zebras, […]

HOT: PBS Rock-A-Bye Baby Music Sessions, Fitzroy Town Hall, Napier St, Fitzroy

Every two months local radio station PBS 106.7 FM put on Rock-A-Bye Baby Music Sessions at Fitzroy Town Hall. It is a widely anticipated event in the community – lots of parents I know in the area put the dates in their diary well in advance. The concerts are unique because they feature local musicians who […]
