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...

Salt Water Lake at Westgate Park, Port Melbourne

pink lake westgate parkIt’s true, there really is a pink lake you can visit in Melbourne and now is the time to visit! 

The pink lake is a beautiful site considering how close it is to the City and Westgate Bridge. You may feel like you’re in bushland due to the flora and fauna and bush setting. 

The pink lake isn’t always pink however. You’ll need to time your visit accordingly. Apparently the best time to visit is the end of Summer.
