It may be cold outside but baby, it's as warm as toast inside one (or all) of these Melbourne Play Centres!
It's the happy medium that makes everyone happy — a play area for kiddies and coffee for the Grown-ups. With cabin fever setting in over the Autumn/Winter months, bundle up the kids and take field trips to a few indoor play spaces. With drop-in play areas, it's great to be able to hang out for a few bucks admission without having to commit to expensive memberships or classes. They'll love exploring the new toys, and you'll love not having to clean up the mess.

Move over outdoor play there's a new world of play that's waiting Indoors. This is a Play Centre like no other and it's utterly brilliant. What sets this centre apart from any other Play Centre? The space - there's a floor area of 2270m2! The equipment and attractions - there's just so much to do, you'll want to come back for more!
As far as play centres go, this one pretty much tops them all!
Housed in a large warehouse in Port Melbourne, Play Central will have you coming back for more. There are plenty of good times to be had here, that's if you can whip your mini's away from the DODGEM CARS!
With the Melbourne weather unpredictable and for when the playground just won't cut it anymore and you really need to wear them out, look no further than a play centre! It's always good to have a back up plan when the stormy skies are up in arms and a play/bounce/ride at a play centre is bound to bring some sunshine their way.
If you're not a local, this play centre is worth the trek if you've got little ones (it suits younger children more-so than older kids).
There's a few different zones to play in from a fenced baby/toddler area, bouncy castle, sports area to kick a footy and play basketball, jungle gym and the real crowd pleaser - the trampolines with basketball hoops (even the adults can kick off their heels or boots and have a bounce here).
