    Any suggestions on where to take a 6 & 4 year old in Melbourne besides Luna Park, Zoo and the aquarium (As these are already on the list of things to see).

    Can you tell me a bit more about it? We're thinking of going in July. DH doesn't want to, he says it was boring when he was a kid lol, but I think DD might like it. She'll be 6.

    The collingwood children's farm and the children's garden at the botanical gardens is also pretty good for kids. If your up for the drive head down to the penguin parade the kids will love it and with you going in winter the sun sets really early so it won't be too late for them.

    Kryal Castle near Ballarat is good too, and they now have suites you can stay in and you can walk around the grounds after the actual park closes. I loved the jousting.

    We went last year when dS was 2.5 and he loved it! It's a recreated pioneer village that has actors who bring the whole village to life. It's got stage shows, carriage rides, gold panning and mine tours. We also did an old style family picture fully dressed up. There is a night show that is pretty good but is a bit expensive. I love history so really interested me Eta: they do Christmas in July so have snow (bubbles) and carolers. We went in July last year and even though it rained a little it was still really good
