This is one of Mamma's all time fave places to visit with the kids in Melbourne. With two cafes, an organic grocery shop, a nursery, heaps of places to explore, chickens, ducks and more - you would find it difficult to spend less than 3 hours exploring here.
It is the perfect spot to have a mothers group or a catch up - hang out at the grocery store and cafe for a quick bite and a coffee whilst the kids play in the sand pit and check out the chooks. Then take the kids for an explore of the gardens, nursery and playground areas, it really is a fantastic urban oasis.
Mamma's special mentions: Every Saturday Makers & Flea Market 9am-2pm in the market space next to the Organic Grocery. There is heaps of useful and beautiful handmade, vintage, up-cycled, eco-friendly and pre-loved goods here.
