    Default 1st b'day party - venue ideas

    Our house is not big enough to have all of our families invited together, so we need to have DS birthday elsewhere.

    I'm after some venue suggestions if possible please - I'm in Melbourne. There will be approx 10-15 kids (1-10yrs) and about 20 adults.

    I'm scared to go to a park because of unpredictable weather! I'm thinking the Aquarium?

    The aquarium can be pretty costly for that many people, even if they pay for themselves.
    Children play centre are a good idea, the kids can play while parents watch.

    rent out a play group hall perfect for kids as they usually have a playground and indoor toys, a kitchen to use, toilets etc and are fairly cheap to hire for an hour or two
