best outside the east
Mamma has gathered a collection of her favourite spots out of the East.
We have popped them onto the one handy page so if you are meeting friends from the other side of town or just feel like doing something a bit different - have a browse and be sure that it will be worth heading into the city or over the bridge!
Here in Mamma Land we LOVE a carnival, a fete and a show. The thrill of the rides, crunch of the popcorn, stickiness of some fairy floss and the cheerful sounds of the games. Each weekend Wonderland Junior roll out the fun for your family and they have a soft spot for your little ones.
Mamma loves spending time checking out locally made goods at markets!

First & Third Sunday of the month Now Westside Mamma has a secret – if you have a train fanatic in your fam Bulla Hill Miniature Railway is a fantastic way to hang out on a Sunday or how about a birthday party?
Great cafe, plenty of play to be had at Planet Kids!
There are play centres and then there is PLAY CENTRAL! When it comes to the fun-o-meter - Mamma says Play Central goes all the way to 11.
This is a really great park - it's just a bit different, with a creative use of space and the location makes it even more interesting. Built in the shadow of the Bolte Bridge it has water play features, excellent sand play and some fab sliding action.
This is a great all year around kind of fun for the crew - once they get the hang of you'll find it hard to get them off the rink and the smile off their faces.
Mamma has always been fascinated by what lies beneath and Sealife Aquarium takes you on a fantastic adventure into this magical underwater world.

Mamma says jump aboard and take a guided tour upon the Polly Woodside and you will not be disappointed.
Werribee Zoo could possibly be the Mamma Knows West team's favourite all round family destination in the west. There is so much to do here for all ages and it is constantly being improved.
Wow, is all Mamma can say, just WOW. This 'Australian first' new interactive art gallery BLOW YOU AWAY!
Whether it's your first time coming here or your million time, you'll never get bored of this amazing zoo.
We may have discovered a new favourite place to play each time we go to visit Grandad.
