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...

Alowyn Gardens, Yarra Glen

Meander through the 'secret' gardens and if you're here at the right time of year (generally first couple of weeks in October) you'll take in the beauty of the arch full of wisteria - magical!


Central Gardens, Hawthorn

central gardens hawthornLocals know this as 'Rocket Park' as it's obvious when you land at this playground, it's all about the rocket ship!

If you're not 'blasting' off there's slides, swings, climbing frame, horsey merry-go-round, twirly bucket seats and a metal bike to keep the kiddos ammused.

The only down-side here is it's completely unshaded. Sad Face.
