Here's where to keep the kids throroughly entertained for hours. We promise even the line-ups and crowds will be worth it (ok, in small doses)!



Go kart's, toboggans, water slides, mini golf...and more! Once you get here (about an hour out of Melbourne) the fun never stops.

If you really want to get your money's worth (and let's be honest, who doesn't) plan to arrive early and stay all day and choose a warm day. If you go in busier times (school holidays and weekends), naturally expect big queues.

Adventure Park Geelong, Wallington

Adventure Park Bonitos Bay Water Play

Just over an hour from Melbourne and 10 minutes from Geelong CBD, Adventure Park boasts a diverse array of water and land-based rides that will keep the family highly entertained for hours.

Super charge your summer at Victoria's biggest theme park! With awesome family fun all day long, Adventure Park Geelong is home to some of the coolest water rides in Australia.

Luna Park, St Kilda

Take a walk through Melbourne's most famous 'Mr Moon' face and enter into a magical kids world of 1930's style amusements.

There is no line-up to get in, just enter through the 'Mr Moon' face and once you're inside kids rule the roost! You buy your tickets for rides once inside and go from there. As height restrictions are in place for rides it's natural some of the rides will be out of bounds for younger tots (even the Carousel has height restrictions). The atmosphere, mixed with a sunny day, makes for a fun-filled morning or afternoon out in St. Kilda.

Fairy Park, Anakie

A Maze N'Things, Cowes

Get lost - literally! No trip to Phillip Island is complete without a stop-off to the totally fun, A Maze'N Things. It's a little world of optical illusions, mazes, lateral thinking, mental exercise and puzzles that will entertain, amuse and intrigue both the kids and adults alike.

Plan a definite half a day here (though you can spend as long as you like) as you're going to need it with so much to do, see and explore inside and outdoors.
