It’s summer school holidays, which means every parent in Perth has heard the words “I’m bored” at least 500 times by now. But two issues are no doubt holding you back from getting out with the kids and discovering the best things to do around Perth. The first is figuring out something new to do with the kids because they have already been to the movies and the local pool ten times already. Most importantly though, you don’t want the outing to cost you an arm and a leg.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Kleenheat to shine a spotlight on a number of the top things to do in Perth that won’t cost a lot of money, proving that you can get a lot of value with a little.

Pirate Ship

Put on a bandana and strap on an eye patch as you jump on a pirate ship and cruise the waterways of Mandurah. Enjoy a 45-minute scenic cruise and be entertained by interactive pirates as you look out for the local bottlenose dolphins.

Cost: From $15.00


While the kids are no doubt bouncing off the walls, Bounce centres around Perth are the perfect place to escape the summer heat with jungle gyms, obstacle courses, wall climbing, and a world of trampolines allowing the kids to burn off any pent-up energy. 

Cost: From $17.00

Supa Golf

The first step to your kid(s) claiming a Green Jacket at The Masters might just start at Supa Golf. With oversized club heads and golf balls, the whole family will be able to enjoy a round out in the Swan Valley.

Cost: From $8.50

Instead of heading to the beach or your local pool, jump in the car and head to the Perth Hills for a day at Lake Leschenaultia — a former railway dam that is now a recreational lake in the Shire of Mundaring. The Lake is the perfect spot for a family outing with cool shaded areas, white sand beaches, and playground equipment. To best take in the surroundings of the lake while you are there, hire a canoe or a SUP.

Cost: From $16.00

Telethon Community Cinemas

Make the most of Perth’s warm summer nights and take in the latest blockbusters and family classics at Telethon Community Cinemas. The kids will love laying back in a bean bag under the stars, enjoying their favourite movie on the big screen. With four locations around Perth, you’ll be able to find a Telethon Community Cinema near you.

Cost: From $7.00

Point Walter Mini Golf

Mini Golf is a classic family outing; however, at Point Walter, you’ll putt your way through one of the best 18-hole mini golf courses in Australia surrounded by native trees and bushland — providing quite the unique mini golf experience. 

Remember — just tap it in.

Cost: From $18.00

WA Museum Boola Bardip

With ever-evolving exhibitions, no two visits to the WA Museum Boola Bardip are the same. Visiting the museum as a school holiday ritual will ensure your kids continue to open their minds to the world around them and the many stories that define Western Australia.

But for an added treat, after touring the museum, head on down to Elizabeth Quay for an ice cream.

Cost: Kids 15 and under are free

Treetops Adventure

For parents with kids who are forever climbing things — or perhaps climbing up the wall with boredom — pack up the car and head north to Treetops Adventure in Yanchep. Here they will be in for a day adventure they will never forget as they glide ziplines and take on over 70 aerial challenges.

Cost: From $32.00

Art Class

For those with kids who have a creative flair, signing up for a school holiday art class is a great way for them to explore their creativity while honing their art skills. Creative Kids Art Club provide several classes for kids aged four to 14 including painting, drawing, and clay.

Cost: From $35.00
