6 Places To Visit in Melbourne for Kids – that include LEGO!

Kids (and adults!) have loved LEGO® for over 80 years. Luckily, Melbourne has several themed centres and attractions for LEGO® lovers to get hands-on, learn, and have loads of fun.

                                   

The Ultimate Indoor Playground

Whether you’re a super-fan or starting out, Australia’s only LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne is an exciting all-in-one attraction combining learning, epic displays, exciting rides, fun connection and interactive play. Spread throughout a whopping 2,800 square metres, it’s easy to spend a few hours here exploring the 11 Build & Play Zones, 4D cinema and 2 rides, as well as creative workshops with an onsite Master Builder.

 

Help make Heartlake City a better place with your new quirky LEGO® friends. Catch a rare view of Melbourne as if you were a giant. Or how about a friendly car race with the family, using a cool vehicle you built yourself! And your tiny tots don’t have to miss out either – thanks to soft-brick zone, DUPLO® Farm Adventure, they can play with adorable life-size DUPLO animals.

 

Be sure to check the events page, as there’s always something happening: Halloween nights, adult nights, LEGO® swaps, space missions, and so much more. Coming from Melbourne CBD? LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne is easy to get to. Catch the free bus from SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium; it’ll take you directly to Chadstone Shopping Centre, where LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre is located.

 

Fundays

Set your imagination free and build away at the LEGO® Education Centre. If you’re not throwing a cool kids party or participating in school holidays activities here, look out for the weekend themed building sessions. A brilliant chance for a quick LEGO® fix after a family brunch.

 

Amazing Play In-Store

Play tables, lotsa loose bricks, and the iconic Melbourne tram made of 88,470 LEGO® bricks – who knew shopping could be such a blast for little ones? Westfield Doncaster shopping centre boasts Victoria’s first certified LEGO® store; an inspiring browse combined with interactive play between groceries and clothing. That’s some serious parent-points!

 

Learn Life Skills

Social skills? Analytics? Big-boss-ness? There are some important lessons to be learnt outside of school – that’s where Bricks 4 Kids comes in. This enrichment company is founded on the principles of openness, exploration, and learning –all while having fun with LEGO® bricks! Check out their school holiday workshops, after school classes and lunchtime sessions.

 

Get Tech-ey

Listen-in LEGO® super-fans! If you’re parents to tweens, consider checking out Techcamp. The program allows kids to get innovative – build a basic robot and program it to make some moves? There’s also the Technology and Coding Club, where tweens can discover other cool programming concepts using LEGO® technology.

 

Mind-Boggling Creations

Castles, pirates, spaceships, Star Wars scenes… Don’t miss the two-day Brickvention Annual Conference; guaranteed to leave you in awe, with some of the world’s most spectacular LEGO® displays. It’s a great place to meet local builders, collectors, and other curious kids. Of course, you can also get hands-on here and, and if you’re lucky, feast your eyes on rare LEGO® sets!
