$12 gets you in for a full day of monkeying around.

If you've ever seen the Hardrock climbing centre on Swanston Street and thought 'Holy hell, looks fun but I wish that was more horizontal than vertical', bouldering might be your new thing. Bouldering, if you haven't heard, is the safer and more strategic cousin of rock climbing. Instead of going up, and panicking at the top, during bouldering you pick a route along a series of graded hand and footholds — and if you mess up, the worst that can happen is that you jump off onto the mats. The bouldering centre at Hardrock Nunawading is a bit of a trek but the $12 entry fee covers you for an entire day of monkeying about. But be warned, if you're new to this your arms will certainly ache the next day.
