Catch the ferry to Perth Zoo
Perth is home to one of the oldest zoos in the country, and also one of the most beautiful. Situated in South Perth, Perth Zoo is a very short and enjoyable ferry ride from Perth CBD across the stunning Swan River. Once you’re there, you’ll see that the zoo boasts more than 150 exotic and native species of animals from all over the world – plus, you can even hire wagons to cart the family around in case all the walking around is too much for little legs, and there are also spots for mums and dads to grab a coffee.
If your kids are into science, then take them to West Perth’s Scitech Discovery Centre. Scitech is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and maths. There are loads of innovative and interactive museums for kids to get involved in, as well as exhibits that change throughout the year.
