Jewish Holocaust Centre

The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

Reviewed By BepeAustralia - Australia

Melbourne has the largest Jewish Holocaust survivor community outside of Israel, I believe, and this museum is an excellent showcase for the horrors experienced during WWII. Suitable for all ages with guides able to explain what you are seeing, including some who were even incarcerated. There are films as well as exhibits so there is something for everyone.

Elwood Beach

Reviewed By RELLE2 - Hunters Hill, Australia

Elwood is an expansive sandy beach which caters for all sorts of activities in and out of the water. After a day in the sun the parking lot changes over for people wanting to enjoy dinner and the sunset. There is a path for bikes, walkers, runners etc along the beach and also a wide grassy area for picnics and just lounging around without all the sand. We enjoy going for sunset.

Caulfield Park

Reviewed By Fiona H - New York City, New York

really good park providing different areas, Playgrounds, sports fields, good dog walking areas as well as running around the perimeter. The lake provides some interest for the park, and there are some lovely trees. I feel that the park could be maintained a bit better, but clearly it is important for the local community and well used.

Bounce Inc Trampoline Park Glen Iris

BOUNCE is a world where the wall becomes the floor, a slam-dunk is within your grasp and the rules of gravity no longer apply. It's packed with lots of things to do with kids and the family. BOUNCE takes the rush of getting airborne and adds a bunch of new dimensions - from aerial manoeuvres to slam dunking, wall running and dodgeball warfare. The best part is it doesn't matter if you're under 5 or an action sports junkie in training - you're never too old or too young to have an awesome time. With more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed within huge, colourful spaces at a growing number of locations around Australia, BOUNCE is a spring-loaded urban playground with a wide range of things to do with kids; where hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade sponge, giant air bags and Springs. The rush of BOUNCE is infectious. Look around and everyone's buzzing, whether they're running up The Wall, launching into the Big Bag or loosening up in the Free Jump arena. It can be as easy or as challenging as you like - a training ground for aerial sports acrobatics, a place to kick back and look out over the action, or just a hard-core form of exercise that lets you burn energy without noticing you're in the middle of a cardio workout. And our friendly staff are always there to offer safety tips and show you a few moves along the way.

Reviewed By Stefani T

The staffs are excellent. They are friendly and helpful. There was some confusion but rectified quickly. Our host, Liam and his friend, Mr Banana, were superb with the kids. They were fun and engaging, they were very aware of the surrounding and was always prioritising safety without being like "helicopter parents". The facilities were great but ultimately, the staffs won us over. We did wish that we were better informed about the structures of the party as some parents of our guests were requesting jumping access so they can be near the kids. We bought 8 extra but most were wasted because the parents who requested them didn't really require the access.

Unfortunately we arrived too late to go on a tour of the house but had time to explore the Gardens. An excellently presented site with good botanical diversity and an amazing shade house. We are looking forward to returning and viewing the house.

St Kilda Pier

St Kilda Pier is a Melbourne landmark and has traditionally been one of Melbourne's most popular tourist attractions. Providing panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and Port Phillip Bay, the pier is a popular destination for strolling, cycling, in-line skating and fishing. St Kilda's Little Penguin colony is well-known for making the breakwater its home, and is a popular tourist attraction. You can view the Little Penguins from the viewing platform at St Kilda Pier or by charter boat. St Kilda Pier has safe wheelchair access, lighting, handrails, drinking Fountains, toilets, barbeques and a picnic and playground area. Only 5km from Melbourne CBD, St Kilda is well serviced by public transport. Take the tram from the heart of the city. Alternatively, car parking is available in the vicinity of the foreshore.

Reviewed By arfaus - Hong Kong, China

We had a great afternoon walk along the pier and the breakwater. I thought we weren't going to see any penguins during the day, but we saw two - and plenty of orange starfish, jellyfish, other marine creatures and birds. Be sure to bring a jacket or jumper though, because it can obviously get quite cool and windy.
