Besides the all new top innovations, my goal was to recognize the old times playground. The nintendo's and 286's and even spectruns. The top moment was my youngest, 4, holding a 80's Nintendo wired control like it was a brand new wii remote. :) Peaceful...More

Attended an invite event only for breakfast and am presentation - first time I had seen this venue - it's pretty drab surroundings not inviting and not representing the name at all - there are better places

During the summer holidays, you can expect a crowd; the displays were fun nd interactive while very informative. Would recommend to families with kids of all ages.

The ACMI is easy to find and is a great free attraction. They have a wide range of artefacts including Cate Blancett's Oscar, Crocodile Dundee's hat, Kylie Minogue's dress and the Mad Max car! Loads of interactive exhibits too including earlier video games. Definitely worth...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Can you elaborate on how the hours were wasted? Im thinking of flying up one morning, getting in as early as possible and then flying out of Melbourne that night. But i'm worried that might not be enough time to enjoy the show if i book the 10am Saturday session?
