Xcapade Escape Rooms

Escape Rooms are an exciting & challenging real life experience that enable small groups of people to use clues within and sometimes beyond the room to solve puzzles that allow them to escape the room.

We had such a great time trying to decipher the riddles and clues. The clues themselves were very well thought out, and I am surprised we actually cracked all of them, as they were so clever! Great thing to do with a family, an hour well spent!

We had an awesome day on the river. Sea Kayak Australia is one of the only companies in Melbourne that allows you to paddle without a guide, if that is what you are looking for. Great great, friendly staff, reasonable prices and excellent all-round services. Kayaking down the Yarra and in the CBD is a great way to see Melbourne from a different angle. You get a glimpse of the city that most people don't see. As 'Canadian adventurers', we really enjoyed renting from Dave. Super friendly guy. We will definitely be back again!

The city circle tram is free of charge. It's a really quaint old-fashioned tram which does a circular route of most of the main attractions in Melbourne CBD. There is a recorded commentary of the area telling you which stops to use for the different attractions. You're free to hop on and off as often as you want. Or stay on for the complete route! They run every 10 minutes throughout the day, clockwise and anticlockwise so are very convenient. A huge saving from using the city sight-seeing buses!

Heide Museum of Modern Art

Reviewed By Traveller88Melbourne - Melbourne

Donated to the State in early 80s by the free loving, partner swapping, bohemian well heeled couple John & Sunday Reed - this museum of Modern art is avant garde, modernist, experimental..etc..etc. So if you are are a classicist- don't come here! Entry into outdoor sprawling park with sculptures is free but fee into the various buildings incl the Reeds' Homestead where artworks are displayed is steep for a state owned Museum. Check website for prices, times & once you print/purchase the ticket - keep it to show Museum staff as you enter the separate buildings esp. the Homestead located near main entrance.
Current exhibition - Sidney "Nolan at the Newsagent" is juvenile smears of paint on various medium that the penurious artist had to make do before he became the renowned painter of Bushranger Ned Kelley. Err..r- if you are into this type of thing. Have seen Ned Kelley series at Canberra Nat gallery - not my cuppa either. School kids do a great job replicating this I reckon!
I got my money's worth mesmerised by Albert Tucker's "Australian Stories". Loved the open plan style of Heide II & the various mediums of artwork displayed here. Jenny Watson's "fabric of fantasy" ..er..rr... art especially modern art is definitely in the eye of the beholder!! You will need at least 3 hours to take it in - both indoor exhibits & the outdoor areas - a lot to cover. The grounds slope down towards meandering murky Yarra river at the back, with a steep gully near the Homestead & nice views.
My first visit here by 903 bus from Chadstone Shopping Centre - 1 hr ride one way getting on about 9.30 am, just for the fun of it! Concession card holders get a free ride on Sunday (pardon the pun).
Park has interesting sculptures scattered around. The corrugated iron cows grazing in the "meadow" will fool you for the real thing, great place for a walk if you have the time - bring a picnic & enjoy the day out. Wheelchair & pram friendly. Various Gardens & winding paths but undercover shelters are limited - no Bbq. Extensive free parking - there are more parking areas further along Banksia Park. Had hot choc at the Cafe - bit watery but friendly service. Yup - will come again & spend more time exploring the park.

Chocolatier Australia Shop

Reviewed By shandy40 - Melbourne

The intention was to have afternoon tea in some pleasant surroundings and buy some chocolates as gifts. However, whilst there was a large array of chocolates to purchase at the shop, we certainly didn't find it a particularly nice spot for afternoon tea. It was very crowded. The number of the cars in the car park should have given us an idea, not to mention the couple of large minni-cans with groups. It was very noisy and there were lots of kids running around. If you have kids, this would actually be a good stop. The food was OK but that was about all.,

Walked into the briefing with a couple of friends expecting it to be like an escape room... we were wrong!
We were briefed on the heist, given some gear and off we went... into the bank to make the biggest score of our lives! However it's safe to say that we are the worst crooks ever... If it we're a movie, it'd be more of a comedy than a crime flick... not the clever kind... the stupid kind... I think we stole someone's old teeth...
Great experience! The concept is well executed and the roaming security guard adds to the adrenaline rush. We will definitely be back to redeem ourselves!

Diamond Valley Railway

Reviewed By phebianMelbourne - Melbourne

Brought our 5 year old grand-daughter here (and her older sister) for a birthday treat. After a reasonably long ride around corners, through stations, across Bridges and through tunnels; we asked our birthday girl what she wanted to do next. The reply was
"Please may we do it again, but on another train." We did and they were just as excited the second time around. What a fantastic place! There are picnic facilities, a children's playground, horse rides, and a van that sells enormous gelati ice creams!. Definitely worth a visit.

Hays Paddock

Reviewed By Brianturkey - Melbourne, Australia

Went to Hay's Paddock with Belmore school (for disabled children). Most of the kids were in wheelchairs but all had a great time.
The playground area is enclosed by fence with child proof openings. Most of the equipment is wheelchair accessible and there are bbqs just outside the playground area.
The place has been well thought out and provides a great range of activities.
Boroondara council do Playgrounds brilliantly and this is no exception.
Tons of parking, easy access, good facilities (toilets etc) and the security of the enclosing fence make this place a stand out.

...but I left with the knowledge and savvy to create my own brewery and be in direct competition with CUB, with the eventual goal being to buy a majority share of CUB and liquidating the assets and giving all excess beer to the masses in my own personal Robin Hood moment.
