Surfing Mums I recently heard about this on the radio. Such a great concept. It was started by a mum that was struggling to get back into the surf after having children. The group takes turns in looking after children on the beach so everyone gets an opportunity to surf. It has a really lovely community feel to the group so if you are a surf lover you should definitely check it out. See the website for your nearest location. http://surfingmums.com/
Have you heard of the website meetup.com? A FREE site, no fees as the website makes money from the group organisers. You just need to register with an account from a registered email address. Here are the groups I found in Melbourne relevant to families and parenting.
