“The great thing that the Scout Movement has to offer, probably better than any other organisation in the whole of Australia, is the opportunity for young people to discover their key strengths and utilise them on a regular basis.
The happiest people on the planet have discovered what their core strengths are and use them every day.” – Dr Michael Carr-Gregg

1) Moonlit Animal Sanctuary
2) 550 Tyabb-Tooradin Rd, Pearcedale. VIC.
3) Open 10am to 5pm daily. Cafe onsite or byo picnic. BBQ facilities – need booking. 03 5978 7935
4) This place is amazing. Get in touch with our native animals. It can easily take up a whole day and you would never be bored. Spend as much time as you like feeding very friendly kangaroos and wallabies that are free roaming. Pat a koala, hold a live python, walk with a dingo, watch an entertaining eco show and learn about our endangered animals. Meet the wombats and learn about how dangerous these cuddly looking creatures can really be, talk to the cockatoos and check out the blue tongue lizards.
So great to see how this sanctuary is making a difference and creating breeding programs for our endangered animals. Spend a day there and your visit will help this amazing place to provide a ‘sanctuary’ for these animals, rather than a zoo, and establish more breeding programs for our endangered animals. Can’t get better than that!

My son and I are doing it together and my daughter wishes to try this weekend as well.
Having done other martial arts we find the less formal nature of this very welcoming and quite pleasant and very suitable for those who have done no combat arts and are of modest fitness.

1) Board games, role player games, organised games space + cafe/bar – ‘Games Laboratory’
2) Melbourne city centre, 328 Little Lonsdale Street
4) this is a big, open two-level space that seems to be run by gamers, has a nice welcoming, communal vibe to it. There is a games library where you can choose a board game for (last I remember) gold coin donation. They also have organised Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering type games. Plus a downstairs cafe/bar with games. No cats though. The cat cafe is down the road.
