leisurelink aquatic and recreation centre, grovedale

Mamma thinks this is more like a massive waterpark than just a swim centre, and the perfect place to dive in for some indoor aquatic FUN! With a 50 metre pool, learn to swim pool, warm water pool for exercise, toddlers pool, spa and sauna, two massive 12.5 metre high water slide, a water adventure park and a kids splash pad (phew!), you’re going to have a hard time getting the kids to leave!

The Hoyts at The District Docklands has only recently just opened and it is a little different from the usual kind of cinema. Firstly, every single seat in the entire 8 cinema complex is a powered recliner! Ahhhhh! So good! It really is a touch of luxury to get you fully in the mood to relax and enjoy yourself.

When you go through as many blueberries as Mamma’s family, seeing row upon row of these little delicious gems is a sight to see! Otway Blueberries has been around since the 90’s and they provide blueberries all around the Otways and surf coast. You can, of course, pick your own stash here though too - and Mamma sure does LOVE pickin’!!

st kilda ferry from williamstown, williamstown (gem pier)

This little adventure couldn’t be more perfect! The boat ride across the bay is beautiful, stress free, swift, exciting and most of all fun. Your St Kilda destination is gorgeous, arriving at St Kilda pier, immersed in the beachside vibes - it truly feels like you are on a little holiday!

Oh and The St Kilda ferry and their crew are so lovely - assisting with getting prams on board and they are so lovely with the kids too.

Mamma suggests a Sunday is a good option - the St Kilda Esplanade market is on and always nice to peruse the stalls, stop for some food tuck yummies and take in the atmosphere. You could always plan a family trip to Luna Park or if you are on a tight budget pack a picnic and head for the absolutely lovely Veg Out Community Gardens or St Kilda Botanical Gardens.

Mamma’s special mention: Gem Pier, Nelsons Place and Commonwealth Reserve here in Williamstown is a are a great place for adventure too.
