Adventure World Water Park promises something for every family member. Children can enjoy spending the day going through Yarli’s Safari in their own little safari car and stop by to say hello to koalas in Koala Kingdom. The “Big Kids” can enjoy a wide variety of adrenaline-pumping rides including the iconic pendulum swing ride, Goliath, the heart thumping roller coaster, Abyss, and the world’s longest funnel water slide, Kraken. Booking in advance is advisable as the theme park gets extremely busy especially during the summer months.

Waterbabies, this is your calling! Perth’s Outback Splash is all about the tipsy turvy waterslides and seasonal water-based attractions perfect for a day out in the sun. Cool down in Splash Island, the ultimate water playground with interactive sprays, colourful water cannons and instruments.

Situated on the scenic Mandurah foreshore, King Carnival not only offers a wide variety of fun games and rides, it is host to Western Australia’s biggest Halloween event, Screamfest in October and other live entertainment shows throughout the year.

A must do is to take a ride on the 60-year-old ferris wheel and take in the picturesque views of the estuary of Mandurah. It’s a great spot to also celebrate birthday parties if you are ever looking to celebrate a loved one.

Yallingup Maze

If you are visiting the Margaret River Region, spend a few hours in Yallingup Maze, the only timber maze in the wine valley. A place for all ages, it features outdoor mazes, nature play areas, a bouncy castle and also an indoor puzzle cafe. Challenge yourself through the maze with your kids or if you prefer to be indoors with some air-con to cool down, the indoor puzzle cafe has free-to-play puzzle games and a spacious area to wind down.

Kalgoorlie Boulder

While it’s not a theme park, a day to visit the biggest gold mining area makes an adventure of its own. Make a trip into the Golden Outback by taking a train ride directly from Perth. The Prospector is well known as a rural passenger train service that connects East of Perth to Kalgoorlie. The modern Prospector, known locally as the Kalgoorlie train, departs twice on Monday and Friday and is fitted with all modern technology to make your 7-hour train journey comfortable.
