So Many Gems, it's Just a Matter of Finding Them

Oh Victorians, how lucky we are to call this beautiful place home. Despite the obvious natural beauty we are surrounded with, we also have an amazing array of local businesses, a taste-bud tantalizing food scene, and a community-oriented city filled with new events each and every week.

Now that Spring is here it’s the perfect time to check out a new park or playground with the kids. One of our favourite spots is Beacon Hill Park as there’s plenty of paths, multiple playgrounds, hundreds of ducks to be fed, and of course the local favourite, Children’s Petting Zoo.

On those rainy days, Victoria still has tons in store. If your child is needing to blow off some energy there’s plenty of indoor play places or recreation centres that will keep them active. There’s always the option to take in a show or a cultural visit to some of our museum or galleries.
