Visitors with children will never be far from a city park or playground. One of the local favorites is Doug Hull Adventure Park, situated at the northern edge of Coburg Lake Reserve.

The largest event venue here is Coburg Velodrome, which has hosted multiple charity events, concerts, festivals and outdoor movie shows since 2015. For displays of local art and small events, drop by Schoolhouse Studios, which is located a few steps from Coburg Train Station.

Since Coburg is a suburban area, traffic is generally fluid until you get closer to Melbourne. Having said that, it’s best to avoid the area near Oval Stadium whenever there is a Lions match.
