Summer means more time for fun family activities and Melbourne certainly has no shortage of fun things for the whole family to enjoy together. Here's a list of some of four favourite kid friendly spots in and around Melbourne.
COLLINGWOOD CHILDRENS FARM
Bringing the country to the city, the Collingwood Children’s Farm gives urban kids a chance to give farming life a go. You can milk the cows, feed the
chooks, ride a pony or play with the baby lambs. A farmer’s market takes place every second Saturday of the month, where you can pick up fresh produce.
The Farm Café serves up hearty meals with a paddock-to-plate policy: everything is made from scratch and ingredients are sourced locally. The farm
is easily accessible via Public Transport from the city.
Gumbuya Park has had a $50 million facelift and rebranded as Gumbuya World – and there is a lot more fun to be had. Gumbuya World comprises four distinct
areas: Oasis Springs, Wildlife Trail, Oz Adventures and Outback Explorers. The Oasis Springs water park features fast slides with steep drops and exciting
twists and turns. For a walk on the wilder side, there is the Wildlife Trail, with more than 50 animal species to see. Oz Adventure is a rides section
for everyone, and Outback Explorers comprises rides for smaller visitors. Gumbuya World is open every single day except Christmas Day. It's best to
have your own transportation to visit this attraction.
A Personal favourite of the team here at Pegasus. No childhood is complete without a walk through that famous giant mouth at Luna Park. From the moment
you walk through you're exposed to a world full of carnival flair; older kids will love The Power Surge and Enterprise, while the family-friendly Silly
Serpent and Arabian Merry are best for the little ones. But nothing beats the classic Heritage Listed Scenic Railway Roller Coaster for a whirlwind
adventure around the entire park. The Scenic Railway is the worlds oldest continually operating roller coaster and is worth it alone for the views.
Classic carnival treats are on offer, and those with a more sophisticated pallet can enjoy gourmet pizzas, deli-style sandwiches and burgers at Café Luna.
