Insider city tips

  • Nat Esler, Editor of Millie Mummy Melbourne

    "For older children free wi-fi is a must."

    We chat with Nat Esler, Editor of Millie Mummy Melbourne, to ask for her insider tips on where to stay and things to do in Melbourne with the kids.

    1. What are the top 5 things you look for in a family friendly hotel?

    A restaurant with high chairs and a kids' menu would be right up there, but having cots, a swimming pool and being in a central location would be ideal. For older children free wi-fi is a must.

    2. Which neighbourhood would you recommend someone who is looking to book a hotel for a family stay in Melbourne?

    I would stick to the CBD, there's a lot more options for attractions and restaurants so it's easier to choose something that will fit within your budget.

    3. What are your top family friendly travel hacks for Melbourne?

    Parents should invest in a lightweight stroller for littlies / toddlers to save little legs. We found one that enables the back rest to lie flat - it meant our daughter could have a snooze while we were sightseeing and we didn't have to return to the hotel for her naps. Colouring books and packs of stickers are great for keeping children amused at restaurants.

    4. What are the best family friendly activities in Melbourne you won’t find on the tourist map?

    ArtPlay is behind Federation Square and is an amazing creative space with scheduled activities for children up to 12. The Ian Potter Foundation Children's Garden within the Royal Botanic Gardens is well worth a visit, with plenty of places to explore and enjoy the sunshine.

    "I always love to stay in the heart of town wherever we go..”

    We spoke with Kate Nelson Founder of Melbourne’s popular family friendly activities and events website - Meetoo - to get her insider tips and travel hacks for a family trip to Melbourne.

    1. What's the most critical thing you look for when booking a family friendly hotel?

    I always look at the photo’s of the hotel online to check a number of things - but the thing I am most keen to know is: is this place clean and relatively up to date with its presentation?  While it’s tricky to tell if a place is actually clean from online photo’s there are a few tell tale hints in the form of how new things look.

    2. Which neighbourhood would you recommend someone who is looking to book a hotel for a family stay in Melbourne?

    I always love to stay in the heart of town wherever we go - even if we drive to a destination I find it’s always better to explore a place on foot and with kids that is easier if you don’t have to walk too far.  Melbourne is a fantastic city with a really vibrant and friendly heart.  In the CBD it’s easy access to many galleries and museums, as well as the cities famous laneways and street art.

    In the same breath Melbourne also has some fabulous neighbourhoods just on the edge of the CBD which are an easy 15min tram ride (or if you’re keen you could walk).  I would recommend South Yarra or Richmond for families - both suburbs are easy access to the CBD and also have a lot to offer on their doorsteps.

    3. What are your top picks of family friendly hotels in Melbourne?

    We’ve had a staycation at the Adara Hotel in Richmond and had a fabulous time there.  It’s lovely and clean, recently refurbished, walking distance to the city (or an easy tram ride), located next to Bridge Road and all it’s fabulous shops (including a Thomas Dux supermarket).  The rooms also have kitchen facilities and the staff are friendly.  I have also had personal referrals for the Adara in the CBD (in Collins Street) as well as the Crown Casino hotels (which have amazing views and swimming pools).  If you’re after a touch of class and have a keener eye for design then the Art Series hotels are also somewhere I’d highly recommend.  We have spend some time (but never stayed overnight) at the Langham Hotel - it has a very classy vibe and I am sure if the front of house and dining areas are anything to go by the rooms would be beautiful.

    4. What are your top family friendly travel hacks for Melbourne?

    In the centre of town it’s now free to travel on trams - but once you venture out of the CBD zone you will require a myki travel card.  You can purchase one of these from any 7-Eleven store or large train station.  There is something called a Visitor Value Pack that could be worth investing in if you are in Melbourne for more than a few days and plan to visit some tourist attractions.

    Behind Federation Square on the river is a great playground - and heading down here is also a great opportunity to walk along the river and enjoy the view.  On the other side of the river is NGV International (we love the NGV Kids exhibitions here) and a little further up the road is the Botanical Gardens - a lovely place to visit with it’s winding paths and (in summer, spring and autumn) Children’s Garden.  Catch a tram down to Acland Street in St Kilda and walk along the beachfront, visit Luna Park and have a meal.
