HOT: Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Observatory Precinct, Birdwood Avenue, South Yarra

Before NKOTB Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens used to be the location for after-work power walks, romantic dusk strolls and Moonlight Cinema. I didn’t even know that it had a Children’s Garden. Which means it’s working because this dedicated space for families contains most of the squealing kids, double prams and sprawling picnics in one place, […]

HOT: Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, Southbank, Brisbane

Given that we live in Melbourne this blog is very Melbourne-centric. But we do travel occasionally (especially to Queensland where our extended families live) and sometimes we come across fabulous places and things outside Melbourne that we feel deserve a mention on the blog. The Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane is one of them. […]

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 […]

What made this concert unusual was that for certain segments […]
