We’ve pulled together a list of 4 attractions to check out during the holidays that’s fun for everyone, and, lucky for you, with affordable family-friendly accommodation nearby. So get planning and start packing!
Enchanted Adventure Garden
Arthurs Seat VIC
Spend the day exploring mazes, gardens and tree tops at this family friendly attraction in Arthurs Seat. For more adventure, take to the trees on their high ropes course or slide through the zip line. For something slower paced, unwind at the gardens and walk through the trails. Stay over at Nightcap at The Cheeky Squire, within easy access to the Enchanted Adventure Garden and the Mornington Peninsula. Keen yet?
Werribee Open Range Zoo
Make plans for a family excursion to Werribee Zoo these summer holidays. Plus, kids under 16 get free admission during school holidays. How good? A safari bus tour will take you up close and personal with animals from Asia, North America and Africa. There’s also the Australian trail with all your favourite native animals— hello koalas and kangaroos! Stay nearby at Nightcap at Westside Hotel, and you’ll just be a short drive away from the zoo, while keeping the kids busy on the onsite playground.
Puffing Billy & The Dandenong Ranges
Take a scenic ride to explore the Dandenong Ranges by train. Puffing Billy Railway is an open air train that runs through the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. Sit back and relax as you pass through lush green and attractions like Sherbrooke Forest and Trestle Bridge. Unwind at Nightcap at York on Lilydale just nearby. You’ll easily relax at the guest pool while the kids roam around on the two dedicated play areas.
Museum of Play and Art
Let the kids play the day away at the Geelong’s Museum of Play and Art. Their space is dedicated to fun while learning, boasting immersive experiences for children of all ages. There’s the museum wall, where kids can become a Picasso painting, or the “Performance Room” for dress ups and dancing. If that’s not enough fun for the littlies, let them spend hours on the playground at Nightcap at Gateway Hotel, while you relax and check in for some “me time”.
