Spend a day of family fun at St Kilda Adventure Playground, covering over 4 hectares (10 acres) along the seafront. This popular family attraction features a reconstruction of a shipwreck, wooden castles, huge slides, zip lines, and lots of toys and games. Opened in 1982 and funded through community fundraising, the playground provides recreational programs to disadvantaged kids living in the area. Often cited as one of the state’s finest adventure parks, the playground has gone through a number of improvements and upgrades, including the addition of a set of play equipment shaped like a submarine, as well as a small maze, designed specifically to be enjoyed by younger children.

  • Great community feel, friendly staff and free food available for all on weekdays. Timings are limited so check before coming and avoid disappointment. More suitable for older kids - 4+ Little ones have a sand-pit and a small play area - but need to be supervised a lot in other areas. Equipment is all wooden hand-made and the staff play with the kids and encourage inclusivity and engagement. There is a free clay class on Thursdays
  • Kids had so much fun. They liked it because many challenges in the playground. What I like best is the trampoline. It has light that shows people to have their turn for 3 mins. When it is off means your turn has finished.
  • Been a couple of times with the special school I work at, fantastic place for the kids, they live it and because enclosed a lot safer for children who may wander
  • Used to live close by and bring my then toddler daughter for a play. One of the better community playgrounds. Parents sometomes lack the ability to discipline their kids so taking turns can be challenging with the trampoline.
  • Our girls loved this place. The flying fox and trampoline was a hit. Lots of space for them to run around. Just be sure to check their website re opening hours as we arrived another day and it was closed.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
