Welcome to Melbourne

Melbourne is brimming with family-friendly attractions and things to do, see, visit, eat, play, create and explore and our one stop website is the largest of its kind in Melbourne covering everything family-friendly from events, activities, kid-friendly cafes and eats, places to go, parks and playgrounds, day trips, classes, school holiday ideas, daily and weekend inspiration.

Our crew hopes to inspire your family to get out and about and exploring the gems of our City and beyond, be it NORTH, SOUTH, EAST or WEST or a road trip out of the City.

Whatever you decide to do with your little explorers in Melbourne, there are plenty of things to keep them occupied and very few of them are expensive. The only problem you may face, is keeping up with them!

If you're a visitor to Melbourne we hope you enjoy your stay and can't wait to see you again!

Play Pods play area at Chadstone Shopping Centre

 play pod play area chadstone

Just when you thought Chadstone couldn't get any better they go and make shopping with a toddler/kinder kid much more bearable with the addition of four Play Pods. The play pods are modern play areas to entertain your little one when you need to take a breather from shopping! You'll find them scattered on lower ground level from DAISO right through to ToysRUs and each play pod is complete with seating. The only downside is they'll all unfenced. On the upside, the Shingle Inn cafe is smack bang in the middle so it's a no brainer where to get your cuppa and bite to eat!

Kid-friendly cafes

Nature Boy Cafe, Murrumbeena

nature boy cafe cubbyhouseSo you want to combine play, conversation, coffee and good food all in one go? With a cubbyhouse and courtyard full of toys, it's no wonder this place is the talk of the town.

Be sure to head out straight out the back with your Mother's group or friends as that's where toddler action is going on! From the unassuming frontage, Nature Boy opens out from a narrow cafe into a spacious area for diners.

Right now we love...

We Make Carpets at the NGV International

triennial ngv melbourneIn an Australian premiere, Dutch art collective We Make Carpets has created a spectacular exhibition for children and families, as part of the NGV Triennial. Mural-sized displays and interactive installations will turn the NGV’s children’s gallery space into a visual feast that encourages young people of all ages to engage with the material world and get hands on with objects such as household kitchen sponges and Velcro.


The Village Green Playground, Brighton

Well, well, well, look what has got an upgrade? One of our favourite playgrounds in Brighton for little ones! What was once a tired playground is now a shiney new play area complete with mini bike and scooter path where the kids can burn off some energy!

Run across the little bridge and enter a colourful wooden play world complete with swings, slides, a climbing frame with tan bark landing, hidey hole and a see-saw. You get the added bonus here of a bike and scooter track that weaves in and out of the playground.
