Cultural Center
“Right next door to Collingwood Children's Farm and only a short 15 minute stroll along the Yarra River you will find the historic Abbotsford convent. It has a fantastic bakery and other restaurants with local artists and designers taking residence there throughout the year. A local must see!”

Farm
“This is a fantastic place to visit (with children or without!). It is a 15 minute walk along the Yarra River and is a beautiful oasis only a few kilometers from central Melbourne. There is a farmer's market held there on the second Saturday of each month - be sure not to miss it!”

“This Victorian boathouse has a terrace to sip your latte and watch life on the river or you can hire a boat and float downstream in. Afterwards, go for a ramble along the Yarra River among the Redgums – inner Melbourne's only remnant woodland with trees that are hundreds of years old. Very special.”
