How to spend your time off in Melbourne recreationally?

It can be hard to know what to do when you have time off. Here are some reasons to help you decide whether to visit a museum or a theme park or maybe both.

 Many people don’t often visit museums as they tend to think they are boring and wonder what the appeal is. The people who do visit museums will have different reasons from social to personal.


Museums are a great way to learn about human history and the different cultures around us. Just by viewing art you can get a mindset into that time period and find out their culture, beliefs and morals. You can always consider paying a visit to expos or educational conferences in a place like the Melbourne city conference centre.


If you ever feel like you are having a blank and wonder where you can get some inspiration from for whatever reason it may be then a museum is a great place to recharge your batteries and to get inspiration. Observing the artwork of artists can stimulate ideas for you to create something whether it be writing, music or art itself to.

Supporting the arts

There isn’t as much art within the schools now it seems to be getting cut as the budgets are getting lower. Kids still need to be exposed to art and they need to learn about where they came from and all about human history. What world will it be if the children are growing up within experiencing what museums can offer and missing out on that level of education?
Museums are not just for adults but also for older children too. They can offer a different insight up close that what the internet and books can give them.

Visiting a theme park is fun and exciting and if you like to get an adrenaline rush then this is the place for you. Theme parks have everything from little rides for the children to the bigger rides for teens and adults. There is so much to see and no one will be bored in a place like this.

Being a kid with the kids

We are always looking for ways to relive our childhood and the ways we can bond with our children in a way they find exciting. You can just kick back and see everything through the eyes of the children and there are plenty of rides that are suited for both the parents and kids to ride to enjoy it together.

Great photo opportunities

We are here living in a world that revolves around technology and social media. You need to take plenty of photos so you can look back on them. We all take pictures when we are out somewhere exciting but capturing photos of the kids on the rides right at the moment without them posing is the best pictures to take. When we pose, we see a smile we don’t see the surprise, excitement so catches them in the action and enjoy looking over them for time to come.

Relieve your stress

Time to relieve the stress of everyday like and let it all out on some rides with the kids. The excitement and fun of it all will make you forget about the stress and focus on the excitement in front of you. Consider visiting the restaurants, café and stadiums in Docklands, which has a beautiful view and could definitely contribute towards being a stress buster.

Whichever you want to do both works well for their own different reasons. You will know which one is more suited for your family. Importantly have fun and learn along the way.
