The Best Family Memberships in Melbourne
A list of family Memberships for kids to their favourite experiences in Melbourne. Rather than more and more toys that kids will play with a few times and then most likely forget about, give a gift that keeps giving all year round, and an experience they will remember.
The Best Family Memberships in Melbourne
I am a firm believer of giving experiences rather than things. In fact, I hardly buy my children any toys.
I do however give my kids a lot of amazing experiences, I try to encourage others to do the same. We have travelled a lot since they were young, and we try to get out and about every weekend no matter what the weather is, to do something new.
Memberships are one of my favourite gifts to give any child. A membership to fun experience is a gift that keeps giving, and that kids can enjoy over and over again throughout the year.
We all know how challenging it can be sometimes taking the kids out for the day. Rather than cramming everything in, in one visit, a membership allows you to take things slow, because you know you can go again.
Here are some Memberships for kids in Melbourne that every family should consider:
Zoo’s Victoria Family Membership
The Zoo’s Membership is fantastic as it includes all three Melbourne Zoo’s, Werribee Open Range Zoo, Melbourne Zoo, and Healesville Sanctuary. Each of these Melbourne Zoo’s give kids a unique experience. The price of your membership is covered even if you only visit each zoo once, so it is well worth it.
For stay at home parents a Zoo membership is an easy day out for the kids when they are bored, even if you only go for an hour or two and is fantastic all year round.
