Free Water Play In Melbourne And Regional Victoria

Free Water Play in Melbourne and Regional Victoria

Cool off and head to these locations in Melbourne and nearby surrounds for free water play!

All of them are free except for the ones located in the zoos, which I’ve still included because as a Zoos Victoria member you get unlimited entry for 12 months. Also note that water jets are not always turned on so it’s worth calling ahead (if possible) to check.
