HOT: Eeny Meeny, 96 Young St, Frankston

Eeny Meeny cafe in Frankston was recommended to me by Frankston locals as the best cafe in town and it was awarded Frankston’s best business in 2014. The cafe is located in Frankston’s commercial heart and provides a serene escape from the bustling streets. The eclectic retro decor gives the inside front room a cosy […]

HOT: Churchill Island Heritage Farm, 246 Samuel Amess Drive, Churchill Island, Newhaven, Phillip Island

Churchill Island is a tiny island off the north coast of Phillip Island which is only accessible via a single bridge. It was the site of the first European agricultural pursuits in Victoria and has been continuously farmed since the 1850s. It is now open to the public as an historic working farm and is […]

HOT: Piccolina Gelateria, 802 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn

Piccolina Gelateria is serving up authentic Italian gelato to Hawthorn’s Glenferrie Rd shoppers with a whole bank of glistening pozzetti tubs. The gelateria has only been open for 9 weeks and already I can’t remember what used to be there! The small shop has been designed by Hecker Guthrie and painted into eye-catching geometric shades of marine blue offset by white […]

HOT: McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park, 390 McClelland Drive, Langwarrin

McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park is a major public art gallery in Frankston and a fantastic family-friendly destination, especially on a sunny day. The gallery building is set amongst 16 hectares of bushland and landscaped gardens and the sculpture park features a permanent collection of  over 100 large-scale sculptures, mostly by Australian artists. There are intriguing and curious […]

HOT: Williamstown Beach, Shelly’s Beach Pavilion and The Kiosk d’Asporto, The Esplanade, Williamstown

Williamstown Beach is a popular beach on the west side of Port Phillip Bay for locals, but does not get as crowded by sightseers, say as Brighton Beach. It boasts amazing sunset views and is a sheltered, shallow beach for kids to play, though sometimes unsavoury seaweed can wash far up the shore. Thanks to […]

HOT: Iron Henry, 480 Neerim Road, Murrumbeena

Lucky Murrumbeena families can choose between several child-friendly cafes in the shopping strips surrounding Murrumbeena Station. But Iron Henry is the only one with a dedicated kids’ area, making it a great option if you have children who are still at the age where they need entertainment so you can drink your coffee while it’s […]

HOT: Porter Republic, 117 Marine Parade, San Remo

If you’re visiting Gippsland or Phillip Island and the kids (and you) need a break from the drive, I recommend stopping at Porter Republic in San Remo, a small town that’s the gateway for the island. The cafe is light and spacious inside and very ‘Melbourne’ in its eclectic industrial chic decor, mixed with a […]

HOT: Altona Beach, Logan Reserve and Norfolk cafe, 139 The Esplanade, Altona

Altona Beach is the unsung hero of Melbourne’s bay beaches in my view. A local, hidden gem that’s actually pretty amazing and well worth a special trip with the kids if you’re not lucky enough to be a local. For me the perfect beach trip with kids has to contain three elements – a nice […]

HOT: Crafternoon Cafe, 718 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

Love craft – but hate mess? Crafternoon in Brunswick is a fantastic child-friendly cafe and creative craft space on Sydney Road and the perfect location for a rainy day adventure. You can’t help but be inspired when you enter. The front room has a decoupage floor, many customer’s artwork dangling from the ceiling and examples […]
