Create memories with your kids with one of these fantastic Melbourne experience gifts

We're lucky living in the country's cultural capital because there's a big long list of things to do with kids in Melbourne. And most of the places we visit offer vouchers or membership options, which we think make excellent experience gifts for children.

If you're big on gifting but you're not so keen on acculumating more stuff in your home, maybe it's time to start ditching the toys in favour of experience gifts?

Experience gifts might not be much to look at or play with, but giving your family members fond memories and precious times together, and perhaps even a newfound passion or hobby, can last a lifetime.

Without further ado we give you our top experience gift ideas for Melbourne kids:

MUSEUMS VICTORIA ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP

A membership to Museums Victoria will grant your family unlimited access to: Scienceworks, the Immigration Museum and Melbourne Museum. Plus if you're travelling interstate or to NZ you will be able to use your Museums Victoria Membership to enter many more partnering museums.

Scienceworks Museum


A household Museums Victoria Membership will cost you $99. Order yours here.


ZOOS VICTORIA ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP

A Zoos Victoria membership will provide you with unlimited entry to Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary, and Werribee Open Range Zoo, with free reciprocal entry to five interstate zoos.

Lemur Island at Melbourne Zoo


Other benefits include discounted experiences, a free subscription to Zoo News Magazine and a 20% discount on Vjunior family tickets at Village Cinemas.

Adult membership is $114 per year. A child under 16yrs is free. Memberships can be paid via monthly installments. Order yours here

MERLIN ANNUAL PASS

What is a Merlin Annual Pass? It's a membership that gives you access to 10 top attractions, not just in Melbourne but other cities too. The Merlin Annual Pass will unlock 12 months access to SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne, Otway Fly Treetop Adventures, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium (Auckland), SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Madame Tussauds Sydney, Sydney Tower Eye and Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures.
