Free activities for kids this Autumn at Docklands
Don't let the cooler weather keep your children indoors, when there's a whole bunch of exciting animal related activities going on at Harbour Town Melbourne.

Launching on the weekend of 6 & 7 May, right up until the Queen's Birthday long weekend, the Docklands shopping centre will offer free animal related activities for children every single weekend.

Enjoy a jump on the jumping castle like a kangaroo, have your face painted as a tiger, and cuddle with a rabbit in the petting zoo.

Each weekend will also see meet and greets with animated stars from children's well known TV shows such as: Shaun the Sheep and Hoot & Hootabelle as well as a live Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Jungle Book shows.

Being that the activities are centred around animals, there's no need to leave your pets at home either. Grab your furry or feathered friend and make your way to Harbour Town Melbourne's Pet Meetups where you'll have the opportunity to mingle with other pet-lovers from the local community.
