Kid-Friendly Cafes and Restaurants to Bring Your Child to this September Holiday

We're taking a short break from our eco-friendly parenting guides this week! The September holidays are coming up, so we decided to put together a few suggestions for cafes you can bring your child to for this short holiday.

We're organising this list by location--you don't have to travel far to have some fun with your children. Many of these restaurants and cafes are also located near parks or wetland reserves so that you can bring your child to enjoy the outdoors and teach them about the beauty of the environment!
