CHILDREN'S WEEK (22 - 30 October)

Today is the first day of nationally celebrated annual event Children's Week in Australia (universally celebrated on the fourth Wednesday of October, which is the 26th of October in 2011). It is annually celebrated since 1996. It aims to celebrate the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a fun time when children can demonstrate their talents, skills and achievements.

Even though it is a national festival, there will be different activities in different states. So, you may want to contact or check out the website of your state's Children's Week Australia office and see what activity calender they have. For the ones in Vic, I recommend you visit to see what they offer to you locally (different councils may have different activities too). Here I am listing only a few activities from a huge range for the Melbournians: 

- Children's Week Launch 2011: Melbourne Zoo, Elliott Ave, Parkville  
Date: 23/10/2011 Time: 10.00am-4.00pm 

- Music and Art Discovery Day:  Great Hall and Gallery Spaces, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Road 
Date: 24/10/2011 Time: 10.00am-2.00pm.

- Lets Go Baby-O!: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston Street  
Date: 26/10/2011 Time: 11.00am-12.00pm

- Dress Up, Afternoon Tea with Families:  Little Assets Melbourne City, Ground Floor of World Trade Centre, Siddeley St 
Date: 28/10/2011 Time: 3.00pm-4.30pm

These are only a few of many as I have mentioned before. Some of the activities are totally free of charge while there are some which may require some fee (eg. entry fee). Check out if you would like further information and the full list of events around Melbourne city. 

Have a lovely Children's Week with your children!
