Altona is rich with playgrounds and parks dotted all the way along the shoreline. Grab a friend and head to quiet Apex Park. This is a perfect option for adventure with a cute playground suitable for toddlers and a big ol' grassy area where the kids can run...and run....and run. Mamma says it's a good idea to take your togs and a towel as there is access to a little secluded beach, collecting shells and having a paddle when it's warm is always a highlight - With bay views, toilet block, shady picnic tables and BBQ's, this fab spot also plays host to various Circus's, car shows and even kite flying events.
Mamma's special mention: there is a market stall here from Thursday - Sunday selling fresh fruit and flowers. Handy!
