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

KereKere Green at Fitzroy Gardens, East Melbourne

kere kere fitzroy gardensThis isn't so much an emphasis on the cafe itself (though it's pretty good and family-friendly), rather, the outside welcoming space for the kids.

This is one of those special places where inside dining works, so does the outdoor fenced-in courtyard or the grassy patch outside complete with sandpit and water play.Beware though it's not the full in splash about in your swimmers type water play but a very shallow watering spot to dip your toes in on a hot summer's day. Combine it with a bite to eat and walk around Fitzroy Gardens then you've set up your day pretty nicely!

IMG 4464Quick! Ring the bell, prepare your vessell, to the high seas we go! Situated at Sandridge Beach Perc White Reserve (near the beachfront), Maritime Cove has a perfectly fitting nautical theme that incorporates the natural landscape including the foreshore dunes.

Sea-animal sculptures and open stage areas resembling shipping containers suitable for picnics enhance the maritime theme. Other features include climbing walls, ladder bridges, water features and a dedicated younger children’s play area.
