Activities in Melbourne Central Business District (CBD)



One of the comments made in response to our survey was "I was thinking of taking my 3 year old into the city on a train (as I have a couple of hours to kill while my car is at the mechanics) and I was looking for cheap things to keep him amused in the city. We have been to the Aquarium (good but expensive) and museum. It didn't really offer much of what is in the city".

We like dissatisfied users of Melbourne Playgrounds as much as an itch in a place which you can't quite reach. Therefore we want to increase the number and range of activities on our site which are located in the CBD.

The first problem is to find where they are hiding on our site. The easiest way to pry them loose is to do a search by Suburb and select Melbourne. A search in other surrounding suburbs such as Docklands is also time well spent.

This will list:

  • Artplay Playground at Birrarung Marr
  • Australian Centre for the Moving Image
  • Australian Racing Museum and Hall Of Fame
  • City Circle Tram
  • Ian Potter Foundation Children's Garden
  • Immigration Museum
  • Melbourne Aquarium
  • Melbourne CBD Hardrock
  • Melbourne CBD Street Art
  • Melbourne City Baths
  • Melbourne City Bikes
  • Melbourne City Tourist Shuttle
  • National Gallery of Victoria
  • Old Melbourne Gaol
  • Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
  • Skate Park - City (Riverslide)
  • State Library of Victoria
Now, the $64 question - What other activities are available?

If you know of any more activities please let us know. You might be able to help other parents and one exasperated mother in particular.

Just off the top of my head: Docklands playground, Melbourne Museum, the playground hidden behind Melbourne Museum, Fitzroy Gardens - fairy tree, village, Cooks cottage, MCG, Yarra River, Southbank, Crown atrium, Eureka skydeck, Docklands precinct, Melbourne Star, Wonderland, Icehouse, Queen Vic Market, Flagstaff gardens next to Queen Vic, Melbourne Central, Bourke st Mall, lane, Town Hall, Docklands Library, usually something on at Federation Square, lovely churches for those who appreciate the finer things, the Shrine, the light rail Tram to StKilda beach or Port Melbourne Beach and Spirit of Tas Dock (Princess Pier?) can be incorporated into City trips for us too! Likewise, Lygon St, Brunswick st, and Chapel st make for interesting outer CBD lunch stops with a good budget. Don't forget IMAX and the Beanbag cinema at Hoyts for unique movie going experiences. Melbourne Observatory has tours... Ummm... Well.. That's off the top of my head on a Saturday morning... Heading into City today to do the CBD Christmas stuff - so its kinda fresh in my mind. *8vD
