Right now we love...

Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium

Little ones will be mesmerised by all the animals and fish; older kids will love learning more about all the animals and water creatures.

Once you embark the building, you go on a self-guided tour, following the signage. The walk through tunnel that features stingrays, sharks and various fish is one of those 'must see' OMG moments! Read more...

Our Top Event of the Week

We love the Collingwood Children's Farm

It's a magical adventure for city kids to delight in farm life, hang out with the ducks, pat the goats, bottle feed the baby lambs and milk the cows.

It's our favourite place to hang out with our friends and little ones.



Our Top Activity of the Week

Veg Out Community Gardens, St Kilda

There's so much more to Veg Out though than just the garden plots. Community working bees are a great way to help out and become involved in what goes on here. There's a VFMA farmer's market happening on the first Saturday of each month. Special events are held with the local community (Easter and Christmas events are popular) and there's a sandpit with toys and bikes for the kids. You'll also find some chickens, bunnies and birds amongst the veggie plots. Read more...
