Anakie Gorge Walk

On a cold, wet miserable Sunday we found ourselves looking up some of the best walks for kids around Melbourne. We decided to try the Anakie Gorge Walk.

Newport Lakes with kids

Newport Lakes is a beautiful hidden bushland setting just over the Westgate Bridge in Newport. Less than 15 minutes from home! Winner! Newport Lakes boasts two lakes within the 33 hectare park. There are plenty of undulating walking and running tracks and would be a good place for some hill training (as it’s very flat around [...]

Visiting Melbourne’s Pink Lake

Driving over the Westgate Bridge and looking down you could easily think there had been some sort of toxic spill! But, the bright pink colour in the salt lake you can see is caused by a totally natural phenomenon. This is Westgate Park, the home of Melbourne’s very own pink lake. What makes the Westgate Park [...]
