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: Discovery Science and Technology Centre, 7 Railway Pl, Bendigo

Discovery Science and Technology Centre is a not-for-profit, community-based attraction based in one of Bendigo’s old brick red railway goods sheds. The space is a low-fi affair and the hands-on exhibits are of the sort that I remember from my childhood spent in museums. There’s no computer/touch screen whizz-bang interactiveness to be found but the kids will […]

HOT: Airbnb for Child-Friendly Accommodation

I recently took the kids and my parents to Sydney and when it came to finding a place to stay I was faced in a conundrum. I needed reasonably priced accommodation for 3 adults, a toddler and a baby within walking distance of Chinatown, ideally with kitchen facilities and separate rooms for everyone (as the […]

HOT: Bubs Taxi Sydney Taxi Service

We recently flew to Sydney with 3 adults and 2 kids so I had to figure out a way to get all the people and the luggage to our accommodation in the city centre.  I decided that it wouldn’t be feasible to get the train and I didn’t want to hang around in the taxi […]

HOT: Maxi-Cosi Hera with Air Protect Car Seat

A second baby means a second set of almost everything. A second bedroom, a second cot, a second high chair and a second car seat. While we don’t own a car we do occasionally borrow cars from friends and family, which means that we still own car seats. With Baby 2.0’s arrival we were in […]

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

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! Tesselaar Tulip Farm is located at Silvan in the Dandenongs, under an hour’s drive from Melbourne. From mid-September to mid-October every year the Tesselaar Tulip Festival blooms to celebrate the working farm’s tulips […]

HOT: Maclaren Quest Sport Stroller

As you may know before NKOTB was born we bought a Taga bike which converted into a pram, so we figured that we wouldn’t need another pram. Since she was born we’ve actually found it easier to carry her in either the Mini Monkey Sling or the ERGObaby carrier, especially since we don’t own a […]

HOT: Ten rules of travel for kids

Tim and I are veteran travellers and we’re starting to plan our first overseas trip with NKOTB. Hopefully this will be the beginning of many exciting explorations en famille and will plant the seed for NKOTB’s independent travelling when she gets older. On Free Range Kids we came across these rules for travel with kids […]

HOT: Long-haul flight packing list

You know that film Up In the Air? Well Tim and I used to travel like seasoned traveller George Clooney – packing light, moving efficiently through checkin and customs and tut-tutting at the families and old people clogging up the security x-ray machine queues (‘What do you mean, I can’t take my water bottle/screw-driver/pen-knife on […]

HOT: Mini Monkey Baby Sling

While it’s been easy to let the hassle and anxiety associated with venturing into the outside world with the NKOTB in tow keep us close to home, we have made a few tentative ventures outside the confines of our home. Given that we don’t have a car, when we do venture out, we’re more than usually […]
