Melbourne for the kids



Description:

Melbourne has an array of attractions especially suited for somewhat erratic attention span of children. From the exhilaration of the Luna Park funpark to the cuteness of the zoo, penguin tour and hands-on children farm, they certainly will not get bored. Add a cruise down some of Melbourne rivers and the Children's Gallery at the Melbourne Museum and a few days should fly by.
