HOT: Pirate Ship playground, Rob Dore Reserve, Carrum

If you have a pirate-mad child (and what child doesn’t love pirates?) then make a special trip to Carrum’s Rob Dore Reserve, where a giant wooden pirate ship has run aground in an awesome shaded, partially fenced playground. I guarantee that it’s a place that kids and adults will love. The pirate ship is decorated […]

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: Jubilee Park playground, Hillcrest Road, Frankston

Jubilee Park in Frankston is a 13 hectare site which is home to cricket, football and netball clubs and a swimming pool – and a new playground! Jubilee Park playground’s design takes inspiration from Frankston’s beach and bushland location, with references to native animals and sea life in the playground equipment.

HOT: Point Gellibrand Coastal Heritage Park, Battery Road, Williamstown

Point Gellibrand Coastal Heritage Park is a fun destination for free water play and for older kids, a place with lots of history to discover. Parks Victoria calls it ‘the richest heritage site in the history of Victoria’. There’s no beach as such and the small patches of sand are rocky and full of shells […]

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: Geelong Play Space, Eastern Park Circuit, Geelong

The Geelong Play Space is a fully fenced playground next to the Geelong Botanic Gardens and it’s one of Geelong’s best playgrounds. The award-winning design combines imaginative features and a mainly natural setting to create a play space that sparks the imagination. As you walk down the musical bell bridge, what first captures your eye […]

HOT: A Maze’N Things, 1805 Phillip Island Road, Cowes, Phillip Island

A Maze’N Things is one of Phillip Island’s most popular family attractions and if you haven’t been in a while (or have never been) it’s worth a visit now that the new SkyTrail has just opened. You won’t be able to miss it as the theme park is marked by a head-turning giant floating tap […]

HOT: Murrumbeena Park, 37 Kangaroo Road, Murrumbeena

Murrumbeena Park is one of south-east Melbourne’s most popular playgrounds and it’s easy to see why. The large play space has different ‘zones’ which means that kids can explore and play for hours. The design combines nature play, a toddler area, a flying fox plus multiple slides and swings with traditional playground equipment. Two parts […]

HOT: Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary, 420 Beach Rd, Beaumaris

Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary is part of the long stretch of beach that runs along the bayside suburbs and its shallow water and collection of rock pools make it the perfect beach destination with little kids. The sand is not particularly white or soft so the rock pools of the Marine Sanctuary are the drawcard. […]

HOT: Eastern Beach Reserve, 95 Eastern Beach Rd, Geelong

Is this view of a tropical resort? No, it’s Eastern Beach Geelong, on our own back doorstep only an hour from Melbourne. Eastern Beach Reserve is right in Geelong’s CBD and it’s an amazing, free place to cool down, have fun, relax and party, right by the shimmering waters of Corio Bay. You can enter via […]
