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!



Play Central is divided into 'fun zones' including a vibrant baby/toddler area, a climb and slide volcano, dodgem cars (fully fenced), a jungle gym typical of all centres (except this one is massive - ball pit and ball shooters, a super slide and twisty slide, trampoline, climbing frame etc) and what sets this centre apart from the rest is the large sensory area full to the brim with things to do - a reading nook, a pretend supermarket complete with trolleys/cash registers/shopping bags/food items, a home area, a construction zone, soft toys, building blocks, duplo, doll cots, dress-ups and so much more. It's an area to explore and use your imagination.

The cafe and seating area is also spacious and accommodating. Serving your usual array of food (St. Ali coffee, drinks etc), there's also hot food choices, treats, healthy options and a great kids lunch-box deal.

This huge play centre is worth the trek even if you live on the other side of Melbourne. You can even have your next birthday bonanza there. So next time the weather is unpredictable and Melbourne throws some rain or heat at us, Play Central will bring some sunshine to your day. Seriously, it's ace! Ooh...its got air-con too.
