Melbourne Activities and Events for Families and Kids – Easter Edition Friday 18 April – Thursday 24 April

Easter is this weekend and there are so many Easter egg hunts happening around the city I can’t keep up! Here’s a list of what’s on around Melbourne and its surrounds for Easter. CBD / Docklands Monski Mouse Baby Disco Dance Hall (Friday 18 April – Sun 20 April) – bop to pop hits and cool […]

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: Petty’s Orchard, 1 Homestead Road, Templestowe

It’s amazing that you can drive 30 minutes on the Eastern Freeway and you go from dense high rise buildings to bucolic semi-rural vistas. In amongst some enormous acreage residences is Petty’s Orchard. It’s a working organic apple orchard and it’s been around since the turn of last century when the Petty family worked the Homestead […]

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: Visiting Bright with Kids

Bright is a really popular family destination in the summer holidays – there’s food, wine, cycling, swimming and playgrounds which will keep every member of the family content. Here’s our guide to a family-friendly short stay in Bright thanks to Tourism North East. Where to Stay: Alegria (Elm Court, Bright). Alpine Valley Getaways have 52 […]

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 […]

NOT: Chinese Garden of Friendship, Darling Harbour, Sydney

When you line up the Chinese Garden against the awesome free playground that’s Tumbalong Park it’s hard to give it a HOT.  It’s pleasant enough but not really that exciting and you have to pay $6 per adult and $3 per child over 4 years to enter. Lady AB enjoyed the Chinese Garden though so maybe it should get a ‘lukewarm’ […]

HOT: Studley Park Boathouse Cafe, Boathouse Rd, Kew

Features: pram access (though you’ll need help up the stairs); change table; high chairs; kids menu; standard menu suitable for kids; play areas – boats, parklands, nearby playground. Studley Park is one of the few places in Melbourne where you can row-row-row-your-boat…and enjoy fish and chips afterwards. As the weather starts warming up you can […]

HOT: Carlton Gardens Playgrounds, Rathdowne Street, Carlton

One of the biggest playgrounds in the City of Melbourne is right near one of our favourite kid-friendly Melbourne sites – the Melbourne Museum. The Carlton Gardens playground is also handy for the World Heritage listed tourist attraction Royal Exhibition Building and surrounding Carlton Gardens (and the CBD) making it a great place to stop […]

HOT: Artplay Playground, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

Artplay playground at Birrarung Marr is one of our favourite CBD pitstops, mainly because of its convenient location right by Federation Square and Artplay (two of our most frequented destinations in the city). Artplay playground is also the place that school groups tend to stop on their city outings so my first tip is to try and […]
