Hello all wise ladies!
Dh suggested that we take dd (3) on a holiday to Melbourne later in the year but I'm not convinced there will be enough to do that's fun....
Can you tell me some good and fun things to do?
Also can you recommend anywhere good to stay?( we will have our car so will need a park for that too)

If your little one likes animals you could do the aquarium, the Melbourne Zoo and the Werribee Open Plains Zoo?

If you have little ones you could go out to Belgrave and do a trip on Puffing Billy.
Botanic gardens has the Ian Potter childrens gardens
Have a look at 'Whats on In Melbourne' website for fun events.

The penguins are really cute (the Aquarium), the museum has lots of interesting things to do and look at (great playground adjacent too), just riding on the trams is fun, my kids love that because we don't have them here, the Melbourne Zoo is great too and easy to get to on the train.

Seconding the Zoo, Werribee Open Plains Zoo, Aquarium, Museum & Botanic Gardens.
Also, the Queen Victoria Market is interesting to stroll through. They have a night market in the spring/summer. Collingwood Childrens Farm is supposed to be great. Lots of little side streets in the city for cafes/restaurants/boutiques. Probably will be some sort of sport on, depending on the season.
Not sure about where to stay - never think about it living here lol. I know the ILs always stay at the Downtowner on Lygon St in Carlton. Lots of hotels etc here anyway.

We went down to Melbourne with our 18 month DD earlier in the year and I was surprised at how easy everything was with a child. We stayed in a serviced apartment near a lot of hospitals ... Just near Fitzroy Gardens?? It was great as it was a flat walk into the city, up to Lygon St, to great shopping, but then it was quiet when we were sleeping. We spent a lot of time in parks drinking coffee and watching our little one playing. It's definitely different to previous Melbourne holidays but still a lot of fun.
