Things to do with quite small children in Melbourne during this week... with no car. Got any good suggestions?

Hey there. We're going to Melbourne for MrTaff's conferencey thingo and myself, toddlertaff and babytaff will be footloose and fancy free on Thursday and Friday with nothing to do. Can you suggest some local (we're staying at the Swanston on Bourke and Swanston) entertainment for someone with two littlies and no car?
Budget is not a concern... it's our first ever family holiday with babytaff (who is now 14 months old) so we want to make it special... Toddlertaff is 3.5years and I'm very, very old.
I'm open to buying fun things for the kids too, so shopping is not completely out.... but kids don't tend to enjoy that fabulously much. And we'll need very local food joints too.
Basically, I think I need central Melbourne for young parents... and bonus points for tips to getting to and from the airport on public transport. (I don't do the no-carseat thing, so taxis are out.)
And extra bonus points for tips on what to pack in terms of the weather. I'm a sweltering Sydney chick... who has only ever spent a few days in Melbourne, so know nothing about it. (Oh the shame.)
