If you’re looking for free school holiday activities this week Highpoint Shopping Centre are hosting free apron design workshops for kids.

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: Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, Cultural Precinct South Bank, Brisbane

   When we visit Brisbane we always visit GOMA – the Gallery of Modern Art – which I consider to be one of the must-do attractions in Brisbane, with or without kids. Their latest special exhibition is Cai Guo Qiang: Falling Back to Earth. The exhibition requires an entry fee and only three large rooms, but they are very […]

HOT: Visiting Bendigo with Kids

Bendigo is an easy family destination, being only 1.5 hours by car from Melbourne. We tend to visit about once or twice year, mainly for the Bendigo Art Gallery’s series of international exhibitions. Even if you or your little ones are not into art there are still places to eat and fun places to visit […]

HOT: Beechworth with kids

     For many families school holidays means an opportunity to get away! So for most of January I’ll be mainly focusing on things to do, places to go and dining out in Regional Victoria – because that’s where most Melbourne families choose to spend their holidays. The first stop on our family-friendly tour of Victoria […]

HOT: Gingerbread Village by Epicure, Melbourne Town Hall, 100 Swanston St, Melbourne

    Lady AB loves gingerbread so you can imagine her excitement when we visited the magical Gingerbread Village by Epicure at the Melbourne Town Hall. This display can be entered by a gold coin donation that will in turn be donated to Make-A-Wish Australia and makes a fun pit stop if you’re towing kids around the CBD […]

HOT: Tumbalong Park Playground, Darling Quarter, Darling Harbour, Sydney

I have been to Sydney many, many times and it’s amazing to still discover new sights in the city now that I have young kids. Sydneysiders may diss the touristy blandness of Darling Harbour but if you’ve got children then there is no better place to hang out in the CBD thanks to the exceptional […]
