If you are up around the Bendigo area and looking for something fun and completely wacky to do, then you and the kids will love to see Confectionery Capers.

Something to delight everyone *Image Copyright Lesley Mitchell

It is essentially a huge shed that the owners have converted into a fun area filled with movable toys, lollies or sweets.

The children are sure to be delighted and the Dads will be fascinated by the intricate contraptions that move things from one place to another. Not to mention the liberal scattering of "Dad Jokes" which should give him plenty of ammunition for the rest of the year.

So much to look at and play with. *Image Copyright Lesley Mitchell

There are all sorts of buttons to push and levers to pull and many of them will end up with you receiving a little sweet treat.

If you would love to see the children's eyes as large as saucers, this is certainly one holiday destination to bring them to.

On the way out you can purchase some souvenirs or some little sweet as a memento of your visit.

So much to see you may not take it all in at once. *Image Copyright Lesley Mitchell
