Nubo is an innovative educational play space that connects families through purposeful design and quality learning experiences. The first of its kind in Australia, Nubo, meaning cloud, brings play back to its essence to create an environment that encourages families to play, explore, connect, grow and learn. And while physical activity is certainly important, and there are plenty of ways for kids to be active here, they can also build, get arty, indulge in pretend play and read books in the most lovely book nooks I’ve seen.
The design allows adults to interact with their children as they read, create, build, climb and taste, or enjoy some quiet time away from their everyday duties whilst observing meaningful play from a safe distance.
As you enter the space, the first thing you see is a giant spider-like climbing frame with a huge slide coming down from the top. And while it’s not suitable for the toddlers who make up the majority of patronage, the bigger kids will love it.
Our favourite part of Nubo is a gorgeous library weaved around a giant hot air balloon where kids can curl up to read their favourite book. There is also a building room full of Big Blue Blocks, MagFormers and Kaleido Gears; and plenty of places to slide, climb and hide and then land in a big blue ball pit at the end. Instagram obsessed Mummy’s will love it.
There is also a range of children’s master classes including cooking, arts and craft, music and facilitated play sessions. At the moment these activities are included in the cost of admission but as they develop these events further into workshops that are run in series, they will be charged separately. So, for example, a kid can come for a weekly workshop without also paying to use the play space, but they can choose to pay for a bundle of both if they wish to do so.

A baby change mat is located in the small feeding room.
There are also small sized kids toilets in the bathrooms with mini sinks.
There is a cafe on site inside Nubo that serves decent coffee, small meals and snacks. Surprisingly the coffee is actually pretty decent and there is a clear emphasis on healthy, wholesome food made fresh to order with items such as salads, sandwiches and smoothies.
If you’re in the Alexandria area, feel free to dine at Fratelli Fresh afterwards if you’re after a delicious bite.
