It can be hard to keep the kids entertained during the Winter school holidays because the weather can make it hard to get out of the house. Luckily the Winter holidays are only 2 weeks!

Here are 5 great things you can do with the kids to help keep them entertained:

  1. Snow: Snow is not usually seen in Western Australia but Esplanade Park in Fremantle is going to be transformed into a Winter wonderland these school holidays. There will be ice skating, tobogganing and a giant inflatable slide. Tickets start at $8 including skate hire. On from 24th June to 17th July.
  2. Festival: Held at Claremont Showgrounds, the Kids’ Funfest is packed with fun rides, stage shows, exhibitions and more. On 9th and 10th of July. Prices start at $17.50.
  3. Show: 9 days of excitement under the big top at the Kids’ Wonderland. Packed with rides, carnival games, activities, shows, exhibitions and more. Located at Hertha Rd Reserve in Stirling. Ticket prices start at $15. On from the 2nd July to 10th July.
  4. Science: Visit Scitech, which is located in West Perth for amzing Science themed exhibitions, planetarium, puppet theatre, and heaps of exciting holiday classes for the kids. Entry prices start at $12, holiday classes extra. Open everyday.
  5. Movies: Winter time is perfect for seeing a movie and Hoyts have great family ticket prices. With “Finding Dory”, “Ice Age 5″ and “The BFG” all out these holidays, you may even want to go more than once.

  • The Kids Funfest sounds like it is full of excitement.


  • Visit their local toruist centres and you may find out about some free or very reasonably priced places to visit, where the best scenery is etc. I do remember the national gardens there were spectacular, not just the gardens but the birds too. I don’t think any of the wildflowers will be in bloom at all. You may be able to find out where you can see dried ones – probably won’t interest the kids though. I am sure there is probably some great museums, art galleries, libraries there too. Sometimes libraries have kids activities – some are free, others you pay a fee for.


  • Great ideas. We are planning a trip to Perth in the holidays.


  • Love reading about whats on during school holidays. You find out about somethings you may not have known about. Any ideas are great to keep the kids busy.
