last days for dinosaurs and megabeasts in melbourne

Well, we know Melbourne families are massive fans of Dinosaurs and Megafauna Have you had a chance to catch the fantastic Dino Park at Melbourne Zoo, Zoorassic at Werribee Open Range Zoo and MegaBeasts at Healesville Sanctuary?.

Nice and close to home - we have Dino Park at Melbourne Zoo. A fab experience for the family, just make your way through the special quarantine entry into the Dino Park to see dinosaurs come to life! You might even get up close, to touch and feed them with their Keeper. Oh and the dino babies are soooo cute!!

And then Healesville Sanctuary has the MegaBeasts! You won’t find any dinosaurs, but you will find some more familiar creatures that have evolved into some of our favourites over thousands of years. Keep your eye out for the giant terror birds that are very much like our emus, the wooly rhino with two horns and even the ferocious saber-toothed tiger!

And lastly, the Zoorassic in Werribee is pretty spectacular - if you haven’t walked through the gigantic gates and followed the Werribee River Trail to spot an animatoronic Dino or two - Mamma says, don’t leave it too much longer!

Each experience is unique and if you are a zoo member - FREE so well worth making sure you catch each one.

mamma knows north and PEET partnership to add to fun in local parks

The Mamma’s have some more very exciting news to share with you all!  The 'Mamma Knows Melbourne' team has been having some great success and lots of fun working with Peet Limited and its Westie communities and we’ve got the chance to bring EVEN MORE family fun to our ever-growing North community! 

YES, we have joined forces again with Peet as the local ‘experts in fun’. This time, Mamma Knows North is in the spotlight in a continuation of an exclusive partnership. Having reviewed and tested hundreds of parks across Melbourne - we know exactly what parents and kids are looking for. Our expertise will be drawn upon to help guide the design and development of the parks and playgrounds at the wonderful Peet communities in Aston located in Craigieburn and Aspect in Greenvale.

Aston Park


Aston, located on Craigieburn Road, is a masterplanned community and will include over 1600 homes when complete. There are already two parks open for play along with wetlands, boardwalks and bike trails. An Early Learning Centre will be opening soon along with Aston Fields and include sports grounds five times the size of the MCG, three soccer pitches, cricket oval and a huge adventure playground!

Aston will also have the future “Aston Village”, which will include a supermarket, café and specialty stores, and Craigieburn Central is just a short drive away.

Go and discover what is just around the corner at Aston. To register your interest, visit or contact Sales Representative Mohit Kumar on 0437 376 331 or



Aspect’s masterplan takes full advantage of the breathtaking views of the Greenvale Reservoir, parklands and the city skyline. You can keep fit with six kilometres of bike and walking trails leading to Aspect’s Destination Park (now open) or Hilltop Park (coming soon!!). Or, simply enjoy some peace and quiet whilst you soak up the views.

With a limited number of lots left, time is running out to live in Greenvale’s most prestigious address.  To find out more or to register your interest in Aspect, visit or contact Sales Representative Marlon Fernando on 0499 955 575 or



Both we and Peet believe that one of the most important elements of any strong community is high-quality parks, playgrounds and open spaces. They are an important part of creating a sense of community and provide places for families, friends and neighbours to connect – whether it’s on the slide, kicking a ball, going for a walk or sharing a picnic.

Mamma says the whole community is set to benefit from the fun and innovative parks and playgrounds this ongoing partnership will deliver. The Mamma Knows North team are extremely happy to be working with Peet and knowledgeable landscape designers, Urban Edge, to maximise the fun factor in each park, playground and open space and ensure they provide a safe and fun environment for kids and parents alike.
