A Trip to the Melbourne Aquarium

Yesterday my sister and I took the kids to the Aquarium in Melbourne:

Wow! Just wow!

It wasn't as big as we were expecting, but we had an absolute blast. So did the kids:

Both of them:

The only thing we would do different if we were to go down again, is to make sure we knew of a couple of places with reasonably priced parking. We had thought we would park at Crown Casino and walk across, but when we got there it was full. We ended up parking at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, which was a little more expensive, but it did the trick.

On a side note, the cafe at the Aquarium is really quite good. I was initially shocked by the price of the kids meal ($10 for chips and nuggets) but it was HUGE. Corben ate the nuggets and Jay and I shared the chips and we all walked away full, so it was well worth the money.

Most importantly, we survived the trip without any tantrums or sooking. Ummm... I am TOTALLY rocking this take-the-kids-out thing.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It really means the world to me! Enjoy your day xx
