Melbourne offers many different and fun activities for kids, but if you are looking for a great day out in the heart of the city, all you have to do is look up high for things to do in Melbourne with the kids.

Located beside the Yarra River in Southbank, the Eureka Skydeck is one of the best things to do in Melbourne with kids. The Skydeck is the highest vantage point in Melbourne, providing a 360 degree bird’s eye view of the entire city and beyond. Sitting on Level 88 of the iconic Eureka Tower, Eureka Skydeck is 285 metres above the ground but only a swift 38 second elevator ride away.

After being whisked up the elevator, Eureka Skydeck presents a host of educational activities and fascinating facts from the interactive displays on offer. There are 30 viewfinders positioned around Eureka Skydeck helping families discover places of interest across the city from the MCG to the Westgate Bridge to the Dandenong Ranges. LED information displays projected across the floor point to key landmarks including The Royal Botanical Gardens, Flinders St Station and the Shrine of Remembrance.

The awe-inspiring Edge Experience at Eureka Skydeck thrills visitors of all ages. The Edge is a transparent glass cube, which slides out from the building, suspending those inside 285m above the city. The Edge is one of the most exciting family and kids activities in Melbourne

School Holidays are the perfect time to visit the Skydeck for things to do with kids in Melbourne. Each holiday period the Skydeck comes alive with fun activities for kids and meet and greets with the Skydeck mascot Deckstar. See the ‘News and Events’ page for an update on the next School Holidays activities.

The Skydeck kiosk also sells a range of hot and cold drinks and snack food, or for something more substantial Eureka is located close to the Southgate dining and shopping precinct.

Discounted car parking is available close by in the Eureka Wilson’s Carpark for Skydeck customers.

So for things to do in Melbourne with kids, don’t look further than Eureka Skydeck; the highest place for kids activities in Melbourne.
