queens park, moonee ponds

This gorgeous park is seriously fit for...well a Queen! With a cafe and two playgrounds, huge shady trees, grassed areas and of course the Queens Park Lake - this is not just a place you can just pop to for a short play. Mamma loves the island rotunda and the wooden playground was a firm fave with the kiddos so put aside a good couple for hours to explore here and guaranteed you'll want to come back to do it all over again. 

Mamma's special mention: Curators Collective Cafe is open daily from 8am weekdays and 8:30am on weekends. Ideally located next to one of the playgrounds at Queens Park you can grab a coffee and a 'cino for the kiddos, pull up a cute little picnic table and enjoy.
