The Kids and Places Australia app is the Easiest way to find FUN Places to take the Kids across Melbourne & Beyond!

The app is loaded with kid friendly places and family attractions so you can quickly see what’s around you. No more searching through cluttered websites just to find the information you need as the best places have been conveniently added onto one map!

The app has been updated to show ‘Indoor’ and ‘Outdoor’ places and attractions, with new categories added including Kid Friendly Cafes and Family Friendly Pubs. Useful for when you’re out and about with the kids.


• Parents/carers with kids aged 0-12 years living in or visiting Melbourne/VIC that would find it useful to be able to easily see where to take the kids (in any weather).


Just click ‘What’s Near Me?’ and the map will zoom into your location and show all the listings around you (within a 100 km radius). Individual map icons make it easy to see the different types of categories. You can also filter the different categories to narrow your search.

Simply click on a map icon to see the place description, address and contact details. You can also use the ‘Customise Search’ button if you want to search for a place beyond 100 km radius.


The app also includes a useful Play Date Planner! When you find a place or attraction that you really like just save it to your ‘Fun List’, then you have the option to Invite a Friend using the date/time calendar function so you can arrange a Play Date – simple!

Useful app!

Been using this app to help find good playgrounds and cafes, have lived in Melbourne for a while but still finding places that I didn’t know existed!

I like that you can save the places you want to visit on a to-do list and share them with friends.

Developer Response ,

Hi there - apologies that you did not find the app useful however it appears that you are using an outdated version of the app, the latest app has been improved significantly. There are plenty of places listed for free on the app and of course, if you want to find the most useful categories then this is an in-app purchase as described (for a very small cost). Thanks.
