HOT: Wombat Bend Play Space, Finns Reserve, Duncan Street, Lower Templestowe

Wombat Bend isn’t one of the best playgrounds we’ve visited in terms of play equipment, but it is a large fenced play area built around a charming bushland setting and a great location for a kid’s birthday party or picnic (as we witnessed on our visit). It’s the kind of place where kids can roam and […]

HOT: Kids’ Flicks at ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne

One of my childhood memories is my mum taking me into the city to watch a Disney film once a year for a school holiday treat. It was my first introduction to 101 Dalmations, The Lady and the Tramp and Fantasia. Lady AB is almost 2 years old and I figure it’s not too young […]

HOT: The Little Bookroom, 759 Nicholson St, Carlton North

In an era where bricks and mortar bookshops are doing it tough, we’re very fortunate in Melbourne to still have The Little Bookroom, the world’s oldest children’s bookshop (open since 1960). Old doesn’t mean musty and fusty – the Carlton store is brightly lit and stocked high with shiny new books for babies to teenagers. […]

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: Hays Paddock playground, Lister St, Kew East

Updated April 2016 Hays Paddock Kew East is not too far from the city and is well-known for being one of the best playgrounds in Melbourne. The large gated area houses lots of play equipment for children of all ages and it is one of the few playgrounds which also caters for children with disabilities. There are four main […]

HOT: New Farm Park Playground, Brunswick St, New Farm, Brisbane

When you’re parents to an active toddler you quickly learn to scope out playgrounds wherever you go. And the most amazing playground we’ve visited so far is in New Farm Park, Brisbane. Yes the space is large and there’s loads of play equipment – swings, slides, climbing frames, rockers – but the best thing is […]
