Kid-friendly cafes

Platform 177, Williamstown

platform 133 cafe williamstownPlatform 177 in the WEST is a relative newcomer to Williamstown. This slick, modern cafe scores points for its natural light and menu with a tangible Greek influence.
You'll be pleased to know Mama's (& Papa's) that there's a dedicated small play area that will keep your tots occupied with colouring, kid size table and chairs, toys and books.

Right now we love...

CherryHill Orchards, Wandin East

cherryhill orchards wandin eastMmm, sweet, juicy and ripe for the picking - that would be the oodles of delicious and fresh cherries from CherryHill Orchards. Delight in the picking of cherries at the picturesque and rolling landscape of the orchards.

Pick your cherries then you pay by the kilo. Be careful you don't overpick as you'll pay the price.


Bicentennial Park, Chelsea

bicentennial park chelseaOoh WOW, just wow - calling all adventurous kids!

From whimsical play and hide-out spots, sandpits, climbing frames, little toadstalls, swing sets (including a basket swing), a train whose interior moves (yes, moves!), to scootering around the well paved paths, there is definitely plenty of space to get your play on! And let's not forget those EPIC slides - 2 of them just calling your name. There's so many reasons why Melbourne families flock to this playground!
