  • They have just opened this adventure playground close to Pinjarra. http://www.kids-around-perth.com/adventurescape-playground-austin-lakes-south-yunderup.html I want to go and check it out. I heard about it in “Today Tonight”. It looks very good.


  • wow wish I was in perth these school holidays, those activities look pretty amazing :)


  • I love Perth Zoo! Years ago I lived for 6 months almost in front of the zoo. We went there almost every day, after school for example when the zoo was almost empty.
    Another great zoo is in Pinjarra. Around 80 km south of Perth. It’s called Peel Zoo. It’s small but gives great experiences for the kids because you can feed so many animals. A really friendly place!!

    • Sounds absolutely wonderful – lucky you being able to going to the zoo.


  • Lke kr
