HOT: Bayswater Road Reserve Playground, Bayswater Rd, Kensington

Bayswater Road Reserve Playground in Kensington punches above its weight considering its size  – a fenced playground gem in a quiet residential square. The park is small and overlooked on four sides by houses, so it feels like one of those private gardens in England where only special people get the key. There is partial fencing […]

If you’re visiting Frankston Beach with kids don’t miss the Frankston Regional Foreshore Playground, an imaginative adventure playground that’s affectionately known as the ‘castle playground’.

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 […]
