    Free sunny:
    Beach
    Picnic
    Day trip to Dandenongs/Burnham Beeches
    Various free water play areas around melbourne (google them)

    $$ those double decker bus tours are much cheaper than you'd imagine, and you can sometimes get groupon deals for them
    Anakie fairy park
    Kryal Castle (they're both out west but you included geelong so figured you don't mind traveling)
    Luna park

    (Sorry if some of these have been mentioned already!)

    $
    - afternoon tea at a nice cafe (the Kallista Tea Rooms are lovely and a nice drive into the Dandenongs)
    - Collingwood Children's Farm - if you go on market day (check their website) it's only $2 entry
    - Melbourne Zoo/Healesville Sanctuary/Werribee Zoo - consider whether a membership is worth it: with a membership, it's free!

    Free
    - parks, there are so many great ones!
    - library
    - scooter/bike ride

    We have just been to Melbourne about 2 weeks ago. We visited the zoo while we were there, it's rather expensive but loved it, kids also had a ball. Everyone got a treat from the zoo shop there too that was a bit exy too but won't visit again for a while. I also always like what's on at Federation Square, haven't visited for years though, thought it was usually free? It's also a bit out of Melbourne but love the coast, Great ocean road and down that area, also haven't visited for way too long. If you like the AFL the season is almost here for it again, used to love going to footy. Also one of those skydeck things? Rialto towers or something isn't it?

    @2BlueBirds i get the feeling we live in the same area. I can't imagine many people would have sanctuary lakes hotel on their list .
    Point cook homestead is nice too.

    I find the zoo memeberships are so worth it. If you visit each of the 3 zoos once in the year thwn you have covered your membership. Also kids are free during school holidays i believe.

    Free: children's garden at the botanical gardens. Baking, cookie decorating etc, water play at home, mud pies, homemade playdough (big winner in my house), treasure hunt. Park hunt (like a pub crawl but from park to park in your local area minus the alcoholic drinks )

    $: train ride to a new area to explore, ten pin bowling. I think most of the attractions in melbourne have been mentioned.
