Overview

Imagination Station is a play centre in the heart of the central city with a whole lot of LEGO! Our LEGO and DUPLO play areas are for children and adults and we're open from 10:00am-6:00pm everyday. Entry is by donation, with a recommended donation of $2 per person. We run after school classes three afternoons a week (Mon, Thu, Fri) during term time, school holiday classes and a school holiday programme called Brick School. We run classes in stop motion animation, robotics and Technic. All tickets are sold through Eventfinda. You can book our party area on weekends or Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons (during term time only) for your child's next birthday. Or book the whole place for an after hours private event, meeting or party (from 6:00pm). Our capacity is limited to 50 people (for fire safety), so you can now book to guarantee your space during weekends, school holidays and public holidays. You can make a booking for up to 5 people for an hour through our website. As we are a play centre, adult supervision is required at all times for children under 14 years of age. We have a partnership with Mrs Higgins who deliver coffee and cookies and they donate 10% back to us. They also provide catering for birthday parties and events. Bathrooms and a nappy change facility are available within Cathedral Junction and are open from 10am-4pm during summer. All other times, they can be accessed using our key.

Great kid's activities with only a donation requested. Lots of small and large legos and lego computer games. It is in the cathedral junction area. Our son really enjoyed it and wanted to go back!

Nice clean environment, small baby area is not too overwhelming, I like that they restrict amount of people allowed in. Good to grab a coffee to take inside, and let kids watch the trams
