Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Family Travel -

Mel­bourne ex­udes a cer­tain charm – from its his­tor­i­cal build­ings to its arts and cul­ture scene. And while that might sound bor­ing for the lit­tle ones, the city also has plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties to keep the kids en­ter­tained.

For starters, hop on a tram (around the city cir­cle it’s free!). Lit­tle sports fans will love the Na­tional Sports Mu­seum, housed in­side the halls of the MCG, where they can test their sport­ing prow­ess with in­ter­ac­tive ex­hibits as well as mem­o­ra­bilia from some of Aus­tralia's great­est sport­ing heroes.

The Hilton South Wharf is a great base from which to ex­plore the city, of­fer­ing fam­ily-friendly two-bed­room suites. The ho­tel, lo­cated on the Yarra River, is just a short walk to many at­trac­tions in­clud­ing Sea Life, Mel­bourne’s aquar­ium. (And for mums, DFO South Wharf is right next door for a quick spot of out­let shop­ping!)

More info:

Rates at the Hilton South Wharf start at $615 a night for a two-bed­room suite. Visit www.hilton­mel­bourne.com.au.
