Put another snag on the Barbie

Kids love barbies and does life get any better than having a BBQ next to a playground? Probably not. So tell Dad to get his Barbecue cooking implements out of the garage, drop into the local butchers for some sausages and chops and head off to one of these playgrounds which have BBQ facilities. Melbourne is blessed with a vast array of such places and the icing on the gate is that most are FREE.

Note that some picnic facilities need to be pre-booked with the local council.
