    Default Visiting Perth - would love some advice!

    Hi Perth Ladies,

    we are coming over to Perth in about a weeks time to compete in a National Competition. There is a big group of us and we have 5 kids under 5 between us. Do you have any suggestions on activities we can do both for us and for the kids? Someone has suggested the Zoo...any other things that we should see?

    Hillarys is a nice day out with small kids - they have an aquarium http://www.aqwa.com.au/ plus shops, markets, restaurants and a little paddle beach.

    I second Hillarys and AQWA, perfect for families! Kings Park and the Botanic Gardens are great too

    Heathcotte Reserve in applecross has an awesome playground that's great for all ages (we were there yesterday with kids ranging from 2yr to 11yrs and they all had a blast) and there's free bbq's and a cafe. It's on the river so gorgeous views.

    Depends where in Perth you are and how far you are willing to travel... There's a few indoor play grounds in Rockingham and there used to be one in Fremantle.

    I find aqua pricey for the amount of time that the kids want to be there, but maybe that's just me.

    Kings Park in both the Stickybeaks area and Rio Tinto play zone are awesome, the zoo is great, look at The local govt websites - freo, perth, nedlands, Claremont, mosman park, subiaco - all areas between freo and perth. All the websites would be www.fremantle.wa.gov.au format.

    there are drive ins at Kingsley and usually have a kids movie on which is kind of cool if you don't have one near you, take deck chairs and bean bags and dinner with you.

    Hope you enjoy yourselves!

    Whiteman park is nice is you want a picnic or BBQ, they have a few stores museums and a kiddy pool. Plus most of it is free might be worth looking into.
