Traveling with children is a little trickier than traveling on your own or with a few mates. Safety is your number one priority, so you can’t do anything too extreme. But at the same time, you have to make sure that they’re always preoccupied, otherwise all their unspent energy will keep them hyper until nighttime. The beauty of Melbourne is that you’ll never run out things to do with the little ones. Here are a couple of my favourite kid-friendly attractions:

A Maze N’ Things

Get lost and let loose in a magical world filled with mazes, puzzles, illusions, and even mini golf. From toddlers to teens, to even the kids at heart, you can be sure to have hours and hours of fun for the entire family.

Find your way out of a two kilometre labyrinth of loops, dead ends, twists, and pirates. Yes, you read that right — pirates! Tickle your brain with all sorts of crazy illusions. Go from fore to score in a maxi mini golf course. No, that was not a typo. It’s actually called “maxi mini golf” because the course is so big. Think that this course is going to be easy-peasy; think again, dads. This course is sure to bring family fun but it’s definitely going to be challenging.

Enjoy brain-tickling family fun with A Maze N’ Things in Melbourne. For more infomation:

Challenge your mates (or the fam) to get a strike on the first go. Bowling is has been a source of entertainment for ages and it’s not going away anytime soon.
