Mamma loves the moon and rarely misses an opportunity to gaze up at it when it is at its fullest and brightest.
Well, this is an amazing opportunity to get up close and take some time to marvel at Earth's only permanent natural satellite. Museum of the Moon at Scienceworks is quite breathtaking.
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.
