Fun is a bargain at Bumble Beez in Werribee.
This lovely lighthouse is dubbed 'the white queen' and has had her time in the spotlight when it was the location for the old TV show Round the Twist and more recently on Masterchef.
THIS winter, Ballarat is set to transform into a winter wonderland in July, just in time for the school holidays.
Got a bouncing kiddo? Of course you do! Check out this place for an great indoors option.
This newly renovated play centre has mostly all new equipment!
Sculptures, views of the Werribee Open Range Zoo savannah, orchards, gardens.....You WILL be surprised at what you uncover on the Sculpture Walk.
This versatile little flavour explosion is even better when you pick it yourself straight from the bush!
SPLASHPAD is part of the Waterworld complex in Norlane and well, Mamma says this is one epic water play park.
Well this is genius! The Strawberry Forest at Bacchus Marsh is not only so pretty as you weave you way around the strawberry vines, but makes it so easy to see and pick those perfect strawberries.
Did someone say FRESH?! Fruit doesn't get any fresher than this. Mamma and the fam have a ball picking fresh cherries, apples and stonefruits at this 'pick your own' fruit farm. It's a fun activity that the whole family can get involved in - well you'll need every available set of hands to carry back your booty!
The 1000 square metre uninterrupted piece of art is not only beautiful, it tells a great story.
A few tips were required and a few unorthodox plays were exhibited ...maybe a few holes skipped but overall a great time was had. The Bellarine Adventure golf is old school and cool with lush greenery, and timber structures and lots of secret passage ways and fun places for the ball to travel.
Well if there's one thing this Mamma's boy likes to do it's jump....and jump....and JUMP.
October 22 and 23 is the Mount Mitchell Spring Time Party and it looks to be an amazing couple of days. With fantastic food, music, kids activities. Adults $10 kids $5
The Beat opens THIS weekend and is amping up to be a musical blast from the past!
Sssshhhhh....Mamma has a little secret. On the odd occasion after school drop off, Mamma sneaks out along the freeway and heads to Werribee Mansion Spa...
The new NEWPORT community hub and library is now OPEN!
Mamma has never seen a library with a slide before. What a great idea.
This 'Australian first' new interactive art gallery will be opening its magical doors this month and be prepared to be AMAZED. Twelve leading Korean master artists have created over 60 3D images where YOU can be part of the artwork.
The best bit though is of course the gardens. Lovingly tended with pathways, seating areas, plants from all walks of life that you've never seen before or never seen look so amazing.
You WILL need good, solid, comfortable footwear that grips, you WILL need to bring some water bottles, you WILL DEFINITELY need your camera
Introducing the amazing new party space from Little Ginger
Now, some may say 'what is so special about a bunch of gnomes on a freeway' and Mamma can't really answer that question....all we know is we enjoyed our time in Gnome Village - it's just a sweet idea.
Well, it doesn't get more super new than Chipmunks Playland, it only opened last Thursday (May 26 ) and everything is crisp, clean and very shiny! Take a look inside with Mamma's review!
All services running to and from Wyndham Harbour on Friday 10 June will be FREE!
This is a great spot for a party!
