Every now and then you just realize how much Melbourne has to offer for families. Most of the time we go to old favourite hang out spots but then sometimes we run straight into new spots and get blown away with what have been here all along without us knowing it. Rippon Lea Estate garden is one of those spots. Through a little gate you step back in time and get to visit the old mansion with everything kept as is from the turn of the century. The several gardens with leafy pathways are also a great place for the kids to run around to explore. You can sneak under a waterfall and even climb several lookout towers to get a better view. The highlight for us were the magical fern hangar which felt a little bit like walking in to the closet in Narnia except for a more tropical version!
We had a great time here this Sunday and will definitely come back again soon. Next time we will bring a picnic basket and sit down to listen to the Jazz band that was playing.
