About Us

Indoor play area and playground

Situated in Bairnsdale, East Gippsland, Benchelo’s Indoor Play Centre & Cafe is open 7 days a week and all public holidays except Christmas Day.

We are a local, family-owned business who are raising our own young family. Our dream of starting an indoor play centre started when we noticed that East Gippsland lacked an indoor fully-contained space for families to let their kids go wild – especially on the cold, wet days that are common in our region. We dreamed of a place that large families with babies, toddlers, and older children could enjoy – and with Benchelo’s, we made this happen.

Our bright and colourful play equipment has been designed by one of the leading indoor play specialists for children between 12 months and 12 years old. We have guaranteed peace of mind by working with these specialists to provide a CLEAN, SAFE environment. We adhere to all relevant Australian standards and provide ourselves on safety and cleanliness.

Our lovely little café provides coffee, drinks, and tasty snacks for both parents and children to enjoy. Hungry and thirsty kids will love our café, and parents will have an excuse to enjoy great coffee and cake. Like our playcentre, the café adheres to all relevant Australian safety standards.

Kids party room

We offer two rooms for party hire that can be made into one huge room if you require more space (additional costs may apply). Your child is unique, and their party can be too – not only do we offer various themes, but we can customise anything. Our friendly staff are here to help customise your party to best fulfil your child’s birthday wishes. Another important thing for kids parties is the food. We understand this and offer both platters and onsite catering to complete their special day. We can also supply a cake, cupcakes etc. at an additional cost – or alternatively, you can bring your own. 

Please contact Benchelo’s to make a booking on (03) 4116 2023. Make sure to get in early to lock in the day and time you prefer! We will make sure to follow up with you 48 hours before the party to confirm any bookings and make any alterations. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your booking, and the remaining balance can be paid on the day. If your party is on a school day, we’ll give you 10% off.
