Bunnings Hardware Cafe and playgrounds have to be the best kept secret for free family entertainment.
The Mentone store has a fantastic cafe with a simple menu and a fully fenced free to use indoor playground, making it a perfect spot for mothers group catch ups.
The kids playground has a multi level climbing tower with tunnels and curly slide, plus a cafe is next door so you can still keep an eye on the kids while enjoying a cuppa.
Free Kids D.I.Y. Workshops run every weekend in the space next door to the playground. The workshops are best suited for children over the age of 5 and numbers are limited, contact Bunnings Mentone to book.
