For families looking for things to do in Perth with kids, there’s plenty to keep the whole family happy. Take advantage of the beautiful climate and explore the great outdoors. Have a cultural experience that entertains as well as educates and wear them out with a day of play.
AQWA - Aquarium of Western Australia
Let the kids explore all 12,000 km of WA's coastline in just one day! The aquarium and underwater tunnel are the largest in Australia and are home to every kind of sea creature from tiny fish and crustaceans to giant sharks, turtles and rays. If the kids are over 12 years old, they can Try Diving and have an amazing experience with a qualified dive instructor.
West Coast beaches
Perth's west coast beaches are world-class, with sparkling bays, great surf-breaks and sublime snorkeling spots, there is something to suit all tastes and ages. For a full day of fun, head to Scarborough where you'll find a great strip of cafes, restaurants, parkland, playgrounds and of course the beach itself. If you're after a quieter option, Port Beach is free from crashing waves or if you have a furry friend to bring along, Grant St Beach allows off-leash dogs so they can play too!
Getting a selfie with a Quokka has become a must-do for anyone visiting Rottnest Island - and kids will go crazy over being so up close with the little furry animals. Jump on a ferry and spend a day exploring all the island has to offer - bike riding, walking trails, fishing and snorkeling. Don't leave without a #quokkaselfie!
