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 Centres that will keep you toasty this Winter in Melbourne

melbourne play centres winter indoors

It may be cold outside but baby, it's as warm as toast inside one (or all) of these Melbourne Play Centres!

It's the happy medium that makes everyone happy — a play area for kiddies and coffee for the Grown-ups. With cabin fever setting in over the Autumn/Winter months, bundle up the kids and take field trips to a few indoor play spaces. With drop-in play areas, it's great to be able to hang out for a few bucks admission without having to commit to expensive memberships or classes. They'll love exploring the new toys, and you'll love not having to clean up the mess.

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...

Marina Reserve Skate Space & Playground, St Kilda

st kilda skate park kidsAsk us how we entertain and please all three kids at once - this place screams at us all the time! A skate park, a playground with views and the beach and a cafe with take away coffee - winning!

Soak up some rays, take in the sunset (or sunrise!), have a splash and a play at Marina Reserve - a highly valued reserve on the St Kilda foreshore. If you've got a dog, the bonus is, dogs are permitted off leash (but dogs are not permitted within 5m of the playground, BBQ and skate space). There's a large grassed area in between the skate park and playground that's just perfect to throw the ball to your four-legged friend or play some frisbee or even fly a kite.


RF Julier Reserve, Port Melbourne

Julier Reserve in Port Melbourne are what park dreams are made of!
