The Melbourne Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Melbourne mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
Unlike similar indoor climbing play centres that cater for just the older age bracket, otherwise play centre with small slides, ball pits and soft play zones aimed at younger kids, this gigantic centre combines the two.
Yep, that's right folks, there's a huge multi-level indoor playground for the little ones (age 1 plus) to explore with mazes, crazy mirrors, slides, soft play, ball pits, ball cannons, small climbing walls and a big volcano slide. Plus, a vast range of colourful walls for children over the age of 4 to conquer.
The play area is segregated into Australian themed zones with fun play equipment you'll no doubt recognise; the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a big yellow and green Melbourne tram, a 'Great Barrier Reef' cannonball shooting zone and the mini 'Uluru' climbing wall.
Huge play areas at Funtopia Maribyrnong
In terms of climbing, because that's where the eyes are immediately drawn to in this magnificent play space, kids are invited to scale the heights of some pretty impressive walls, tyres, a beanstalk, volcano, city towers and more.
Join in on the NEW Art of Beer tour of Melbourne, which will cover the city's relationship with beer, its history and the best places to drink and enjoy beer.
