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.

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.
