Jewish Holocaust Centre

The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

Reviewed By BepeAustralia - Australia

Melbourne has the largest Jewish Holocaust survivor community outside of Israel, I believe, and this museum is an excellent showcase for the horrors experienced during WWII. Suitable for all ages with guides able to explain what you are seeing, including some who were even incarcerated. There are films as well as exhibits so there is something for everyone.

Reviewed By NJF2014 - Melbourne, Australia

Chadstone prides itself on being the fashion capital, which it probably is, although I was very disappointed on three visits and not being able to find that special occasion outfit. However, I probably won't ever go there again because of the dangerous car park and curbs. In an underground car park, not brightly lit, an elderly person, had a fall on a curb which was not painted, breaking a bone - followed by a paramedic who came to transport the patient also tripping in the same place. This is really serious stuff !! More lights in underground car park and painting of ALL curbs please Chadstone before more people lose their independence, or heaven forbid, their life.

Our kids have been doing lessons here for a couple of years now. They love the lessons and then love jumping in the pirate pool and having a good play. It does get busy on the weekends and school holidays - but anywhere that has this much to offer is going to.

Caulfield Park

Reviewed By Fiona H - New York City, New York

really good park providing different areas, Playgrounds, sports fields, good dog walking areas as well as running around the perimeter. The lake provides some interest for the park, and there are some lovely trees. I feel that the park could be maintained a bit better, but clearly it is important for the local community and well used.

Elwood Beach

Reviewed By RELLE2 - Hunters Hill, Australia

Elwood is an expansive sandy beach which caters for all sorts of activities in and out of the water. After a day in the sun the parking lot changes over for people wanting to enjoy dinner and the sunset. There is a path for bikes, walkers, runners etc along the beach and also a wide grassy area for picnics and just lounging around without all the sand. We enjoy going for sunset.

Rest House Float Centre

Floatation is an effective form of stress relief and deep relaxation through sensory deprivation, in an environment free from external stimulation. Floatation involves lying in a dark, soundproof pod, suspended in a warm salt-water solution. The Float Tank is a bathtub like enclosure containing an Epsom-Salt water solution (500kg Magnesium Sulfate) heated to skin temperature.

Reviewed By Sally M - Brighton, Australia

I thoroughly enjoyed my "float". The rest house is really new and clean I was very well looked after - the information I was given prior to my experience was excellent. I relaxed totally and meditated part of the time and repeated positive affirmations part of the time. It was all about me. It was so lovely to know that no-one could call me, text me or talk to me. Thank you I will be back next time I need to escape this stressful world for 60 minutes.
