Kid-friendly cafes

Curators Collective, Moonee Ponds

curators-collective-cafeWhat's better than a kid-friendly cafe with all the trimmings? A playground right next to that kid-friendly cafe!

Curators Collective (formerly Oliver's Garden) has everything to hit the sweet spot.

A Playground (unfenced), a take-away window to order from if you want to have your coffee and treats while watching the kids play, indoor seating with highchairs and a scrumptious menu using quality ingredients.

Right now we love...

Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park

sherbrooke forest walkEnjoy a gentle introduction with kids to the Dandenong Ranges on this peaceful walk to Sherbrooke Falls, and find a new favourite escape for walks and picnics. Start at the beginning of the track near the main entrance on Sherbrooke Road, and wind past rough and smooth tree ferns and towering ash.

While you take in the stunning views, the kids will no doubt find all the muddy crevices that you avoid and they might just spot a lyrebird.


Riverside Park 'Black Sapphire', Aberfeldie
