Melbourne can sometimes be stereotyped as a classy, artsy and Michelin star loaded place. You’d think that only adults can have fun in Melbourne, but that’s not the case. There are plenty of things to do with kids here in this lively city. So we have come up with a list of things to do in Melbourne that are kid-friendly and enjoyable for adults too.
1. Luna Park
Luna Park is a very famous Park in Melbourne, and a child is incomplete without setting foot here. The infamous massive entry gate that is shaped like a head and has a mouth that you have to walk through is a delight for kids. Luna Park gets kids excited at the get-go which is excellent. This park has the oldest running wooden roller coaster that gives you a whole ride around the park. It is a Railway Roller Coaster designed to provide you with not only thrill but also a scenic view of Port Philip Bay from the top. Pretty cool, right?

Clip N’ Climb is an adventure theme park that has an array of almost 33 different rock climbs to enjoy. Kids who like the outdoors and adventure will go crazy here. The different climbs are designed for children from all age groups since they are also different in themes and levels of difficulties.
