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.

  • Amazing community space! Only downside is really erratic opening hours. Always call ahead, and if no one answers, take it as closed... even if the message states it’s open (as it is not updated if closed). Parking also an issue... ride a bike!
  • Like an unexpected secret garden, this little gem is full of surprises to delight kids of 3-12 years, and you can book a party space and have the run of the kitchen.
  • This is the best playground in Melbourne by far... Make sure to bring your respect and best manners as its a really community feel....
  • 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
  • Sister had a party booked here for 12 and at 1:30 the place still wasn’t open. No call, no notification, no nothing. They just didn’t turn up to open the playground and failed to notify us. It’s a children’s party so everyone’s disappointed. In the wise words of Latrice Royale - “the level of unprofessionalism... far too much”
