Imo u can take out Chadstone mall and Luna park.
Chadstone is something like our Mbs.
Luna park unless you're a crazy fan of rides, I wouldn't recommend because doesn't look worth it. Prudential carnival ride looks more fun

If you're going Philip island to see penguin, just go st Kilda instead, it's free penguin viewing

You can try replacing your whole of Monday with Great Ocean Road tour.

But I went to the Philip Island website and they said got other sights there like chocolate factory and stuff .. this not worth making the trip?

Yea one of the plan was to watch penguins... but again they come up in the am which Iím not there yet.. and go in the evening which means
Have to stay late and make the trip back

Are there any hot springs in and around Melbourne? In laws were keen..

Is there any near attractions?

I googled and only had Peninsula at Mornington which is quite far .. abt 100+ km one way out of Melbourne and ard there are golf courses

It depends, clothing here in SG is cheaper and right size, over there some other things are cheaper, like chemist warehouse medicine (nurofen normal or zavance for dental pain etc), oral B precision clean toothbrush, etc. Need to compare then buy.

For kids if too hot in March can go for $1 KFC mountain dew freeze or 7-11 slurpee, or can check out the online catalog for coles/woolworths (update every wed) where they will sell magnum ice cream (4 pc pack) at $4 only, IXL fruit of the forest jam only $2 etc

For data sometimes can get the optus $30 pack at $5 or $10, or the amaysim $10 pack at $2 etc, just browse the 40 pages catalog.

Farm day visit = fruit picking ?

One thing I missed is the roast chicken over there, crispy on the outside and yet so soft/tender on the meat inside, much better than all the chicken rice stall in SG. You can try the vietnamese chicken rice there also.

My friend who went to both Philip island and st kilda pier said he regretted paying to go Philip island. I've never been there though so don't take my word for it.
