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.
