HOT: Prahran Market Kids Activities, 163 Commercial Road, South Yarra

Turn tedious grocery shopping into a fun expedition with the family by heading to Prahran Market. Melbourne’s oldest market used to be my local market when I lived south of the river and it’s a great place to browse, try new foods and buy cheap bags of produce around closing time. The undercover market has […]

HOT: Tesselaar Tulip Festival, Tesselaar Tulip Farm, 357 Monbulk Rd, Silvan

Updated September 2016 No longer can T and I jump on a cheap flight for a weekend in Amsterdam. So the Tesselaar Tulip Festival is our next best thing!

From mid-September to mid-October every year the Tesselaar Tulip Festival blooms to celebrate the […]

We live within walking distance of Melbourne Museum and with the onset of […]

Before NKOTB Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens used to be the location for after-work power walks, romantic dusk strolls and Moonlight Cinema. I didn’t even know that it had a Children’s Garden. Which means it’s working because this dedicated space for families contains most of the squealing kids, double prams and sprawling picnics in one place, […]
