3. Play Central, Port Melbourne

This is a personal favourite and is worth travelling to. Play Central is a huge indoor playcentre and welcomes all ages. The older children love the unlimited dodgem car rides and the volcano mountain. The main reason parents travel from afar to come to Play Central is because the toddler area is a large space for imaginative play. It includes a mini supermarket, a building construction site, costumes to dress and a baby area also.

Small Ideas members receive Free Entry to Play Central.

4. Super Zu, Dingley

It's the only indoor playground in Victoria with tube slides that children can enjoy on their own or together with mum or dad.
