2. Mulligrubs Play Centre
“Smellygrubs is my FAVOURITE PLACE EVER Mum!” exclaims Little Miss three going on thirty. “I love it so much, ‘specially the ‘puter games on the floor!”
Mulligrubs play centre is a state of the art indoor play centre, with play areas and equipment to suit younger children up to 12 years old.
Boasting a number of “firsts” for Australian play centres, Mulligrubs includes Yu kids play equipment, eye play sensory play and a giant multi-level playground.
For the parents, there is a café with viewing screens to relax and enjoy a coffee and a chat, while keeping an eye on the kids.
Located a few kilometres out of the CBD, Mulligrubs is well worth seeking out – the kids really love this place.
3. Bendigo Botanical Gardens
If I was to ask the kids which park they might like to go to for a play, the first place they will both mentions is the botanical gardens. Beautifully landscaped, with loads of pathways for walking, skating, bike riding and scooting, the gardens are designed for family fun and gathering.
Recently refurbished, the playground keep the kids entertained for hours, with both manmade and natural play spaces, inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
There are barbecues and picnic benches scattered throughout the gardens, along with big shady trees and lush green lawns just perfect for a family fun day or celebration, the Botanical Gardens is a hidden treasure for visitors to Bendigo.
