Hello Weekend! What’s on for families this weekend (27/3/15)

Destination Weekend

Winter is well and truly on its way but there’s still a few outdoor activities about before we all bunker down completely. From cubby house challenges to crazy creature crafts, there are lots of ways to enjoy the two-week break over Easter.

Here are some of our top picks for you and your little ones this weekend.

Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show

Unusual cubbies

The Cubby House Challenge returns this weekend at The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Designed and built by some of the best in the business, the clever and creative cubbies are open for public viewing this week before being put up for auction at the end of the show. Raising funds towards preventing youth homelessness, we absolutely love this project and think it’s a definite must see over the next few days.
