What do you do on those days when the kids are bored at looking for something to do, where is your failsafe place to go that will keep them entertained. There are some great places all around Melbourne, that the kids will love and that will get you out of the house. From a trip to the park, to a more elaborate zoo visit, we know there are lots of great things to do. We have out own ideas of fun activities, but we also want to find out your top way to entertain the kids in Melbourne.

The Enchanted Maze Garden


One great place that has got plenty to entertain is the Enchanted Maze Garden on the Mornington Peninsula. Not only will you find some brilliant hedge mazes for children to get lost in and explore, but there are other fun activities too. Children will love zooming around on the tube slides, or picking sweets at the old style lolly shop. There is even an indoor maze that is both educational and fun. This is a great place where you can spend the whole day.

If you're children were water babies when younger, then they might enjoy a trip to the Melbourne Aquarium. This place has got everything from sharks to penguins. They may be too young to participate in a shark dive, but the aquarium still has lots of fun activities for them to enjoy. You can open their eyes to whole new worlds with a fun and informative trip to the aquarium. A trip to the aquarium isn't cheap, but there are some great deals if you look at an annual membership.

Looking at creatures a little closest to home, you could enjoy a trip to the Healesville Sanctuary. Here they'll be able to get up close and personal with some adorable Austalian animals, and also learn about the importance of protecting out native species. This can also be a good trip for any outdoorsy types, because you can spend the day hiking through the sanctuary as you enjoy the native creatures and plants. If you join up for an annual membership you'll not only get unlimited visits to the Healesville Sanctuary, but also to Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Open Range Zoo, and Taronga Zoo, Perth Zoo, Adelaide Zoo, Western Plains Zoo, and Monarto Zoo interstate.
