Sugar Republic opens on the 6th Floor of Myer Melbourne
The Sugar Republic, an indoor playground/art museum of (liquorice!) all sorts has returned to Melbourne after its successful run in Fitzroy last year.

Offering "hundreds and thousands" of sugary themed play rooms for the young and the young-art heart, the Sugar Republic is an Instagrammable delight. A play space filled with a rainbow of colour and oversized candy inspired art sculptures to see, touch and interact with.
Relive your childhood as you visit a classic ‘80s Milk Bar designed in collaboration with Melbourne artist Callum Preston, sit inside a giant cookie house, play Licorice Tic Tac Toe, sink into the Big Gum Bubble, walk into a Chocolate Box, create your own Sweet Dreams and take a taste of honey in the new Honey Bear Room. Plus all of your favourites from last year re-imagined for 2019: the massive ball pit, rainbow room, life size birthday cake, neon wall, swing room and a host of sweet delights.
We spent an hour enjoying Sugar Republic with our two boys; 5 and 10yrs.
They adored the huge colourful hundreds and thousands ball pit, which really is a sight to see. The magificent views from the pit overlooking our beloved Melbourne certainly put a new spin on rooftop pooling!
