More Time for Family Fun

26 Nov 2018

Make your next trip to the city a breeze when you let Melbourne's public transport show your family around town.


Start your day with a sweet treat and enjoy a French-style breakfast at Le Petite Creperie [32 Hardware Lane]. You’ll be spoiled for choice by the range of toppings to choose from, but the Nutella almond crepes are always popular. Make you way to Stop 4 on the corner of Bourke Street and Queen Street and hop on the number 96 tram heading towards St Kilda Beach, where you’ll spend a day by the bay. Get off at stop 138 (Luna Park) and head to Luna Park [18 Lower Esplanade, St Kilda] for a morning of fun in the sun. Take on the Pharaohs Curse, which will take you high up for views over Port Phillip Bay…upside down!


After running around a theme park all morning you’re sure to have an appetite. Head to Fat Jak’s [205 Barkly Street, St Kilda] to fill up on tasty burgers or hotdogs for lunch. Then meander down to the St Kilda foreshore with the tribe for some time at the beach building sand castles and enjoying the view. At sunset, take a leisurely stroll along the St Kilda Pier out to the breakwater, and see if you can spot the little penguins who reside here. Afterwards, head back up to The Esplanade and hop back on the number 96 tram towards the city.


Jump off at stop 124A (Casino) and, not too far away, you’ll find The Boatbuilders Yard [23 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf]. Here the family can choose from a comprehensive menu featuring steak, seafood and everything in between. After dinner — and dessert if there’s room — hop back on the number 96 tram and be delivered right back into the heart of town.
