INSIDE: Roam the Gnome’s Guide to the best things to do in Melbourne with kids and family. Updated 2019.
Melbourne, the home of the best Italian food in Australia, and the centre of art and cultural activities for kids.
There’s fabulous nature playgrounds, community playgrounds, themed high teas, AFL, cricket, Melbourne museums, epic science museums, indoor rock climbing, Luna Park, and a giant Melbourne wheel where you can see the Melbourne skyline from a bird’s eye view.
The Melbourne Zoo and the Werribee Zoo safari park are two of Australia’s best animal parks.
You can fill your days shopping in Melbourne – it’s the hotspot for op shops AND high fashion, and don’t miss Queen Victoria Markets. My woollen UGG boots from there are 10 years old and still look almost brand new!
But when a local thinks of Melbourne, it’s all about the food.
Don’t miss Lygon street for that moreish Italian food, or the main street of St Kilda for decadent cakes and pastries.
Take a look!
