OUR INSPIRATION

Play Central came about from an unlikely pairing of two fathers who despaired over the lack of children's play centres in the local area. Being kids at heart they created a vision for the ultimate indoor play centre that provided both active play and imagination-based play activities for fun and development in a safe, bright and friendly environment for children and adults alike. Play Central is the realisation of that vision!

The location was chosen carefully to ensure the integration of Play Central as a vibrant part of the community amid the local shopping and residential precinct of Port Melbourne.

we've created a haven just for you!
