Perth school holidays are coming up – September 25th (when the kids break up) to the 13th of October when school resumes for the last term for 2015.
While it can be an expensive time, especially if you have more than one child and you’re coming from inter or intra-state, school holidays and keeping the children happy and occupied doesn’t need to break the bank.
Kids In Perth has a great list of twenty-four free or inexpensive activities for families: here are a few:
- Pack a picnic and head for the Synergy Playground at Kings Park – the kids will be occupied for the whole day here!
Try the 11 Adventure Bile Track challenges at Kewdale’s Peachy Park!
Spend a couple of hours watching planes take off and land from the viewing platform at Perth Airport
DFES school holiday fun is free – dress up like a firefighter and have your photo taken!
Free entry to the Perth Museum for an inspirational outing!

It’s AWESOME October these school holidays at WA Museum – Perth will be hosting a number of exciting events as part of the 2015 AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things. Exciting shows and stories will feature the extraordinary lives of caterpillars, a secret suitcase mission, a cloud expert’s special dream, and Jay’s Jungle star Jay Laga’aia!
