Complete with bright pink astroturf, each of the five Ďbaysí replicates stages of a car wash, with hanging curtains of red plastic, and cool water sprays to run around in when the weather heats up.

This is a completely free activity, and is loved by all ages.

5. Enjoy a cultural play in the Play Pod at the beautiful State Library of Victoria

The State Library of Victoria is a beautiful building to visit. There's even more reason to enjoy Melbourne's central library with your children, because there's a courtyard (undercover) dedicated to kids books and related activities.



The Play Pod at the State Library of Victoria is filled with floor cushions, light box play, a small selection of toys, building blocks, crafts and even dress-ups!

The summer theme of the Play Pod is inspired by Gus Gordonís Herman and Rosie, dedicated to all the great things found in New York City.
