I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.

Nostalgia for Some Excitement for Others
If your kids have never been to a drive-in cinema, perhaps it's time to take them in the school holidays and show them this unique experience. Today, drive-in cinemas are few and far between, Coburg Drive-in, is the closest drive-in in inner Melbourne and has a number of screenings suitable for your kids these school holidays.
Kids under 12 get in free all year round! The cinema screens a variety of current films projected onto the huge 33 metre wide screens, and the sound is picked up through your car's FM stereo broadcast.
No need to go hungry, just visit the retro style diner or you can order from your car via the Coburg Drive-In app (available through the app store) to have snacks delivered straight to you. From popcorn to burgers and fries, there's something for everyone. You can also bring your own picnic dinner.
