DreamCity a hit with families!

After opening in late December 2019, the first 4 weeks saw close to 8,000 visitors to DreamCity.  Parents have been raving about the experience too with 5/5 rating in Facebook and 4.9 in Google Reviews. "Wow the kids had an amazing couple of hours with some amazing educators. Such a fun, hands on experience suitable for all ages. My three kids aged 5, 8 and 11 had the chance to learn about and try their hands at being surgeons, pilots, radio host, fireman, electrical technicians and virtual reality. Incredibly fun and informative staff.  Also great soft serve ice cream to top off our great day! I recommend this place for children of all ages! Oh and fun for the adults too, 'best day ever' my kids said."  Kelly Cowlishaw, Facebook, 28 February 2020.

Real and relevant School Excursion experience

DreamCity is your ideal excursion destination.  For teachers looking to make learning real, relevant and relatable, then you can't do much better than a visit to DreamCity.  Each high-tech career activity is very authentic - for example the DreamCity surgery is kitted out with laparoscopy equipment that surgeons train on.  Students are in control of their learning, in fact they are in control of DreamCity!  It's built on the premise of engagement through hands-on immersion in real-life careers.  Enquire about a School Excursion now.

7s Sunrise at DreamCity

What a blast!  Sam Mac, Sunrise's weather man, dropped into DreamCity on 26 Feb to see what all the hype is about.  Students from Bentleigh West and Middle Park Primary Schools starred in a series of fun, live crosses that highlighted the STEAM learning opportunities at DreamCity.  Check out the video highlights.

New DreamCity Café open for business

Mums and dads won’t miss out while the kids are having fun.  Our DC baristas have mastered the science of the perfect latte in our new café.  You can match our favourite Genovese coffee with a sweet treat all before the kids’ first podcast!

STEAM and FUN combine at DreamCity

STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) have been recognised by all levels of government as the key elements of our jobs of the future.  DreamCity is doing its part to inspire young children with the possibilities of STEAM.
