Welcome to Melbourne

Melbourne is brimming with kid-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, cafes and eats, places to go, parks and playgrounds, day trips and daily 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!
