Our Top Activities For Kid Friendly Fun In The City!
Elizabeth Quay Water Park
In the warmer months, the kids will love cooling down at Elizabeth Quay in the BHP Water Park. The interactive water park uses jets and lighting to create fun water choreography, perfect for little ones to splash around in. There’s another great park within walking distance, as well as a carousel for those not so warm days.
Jersey Jack Gelato | VIK PARTNER
It’s not a trip to the city without an ice cream from Jersey Jack Gelato in Perth. Their ice cream flavours change seasonally, but the ultra-smooth and creamy textures are guaranteed. You can even enjoy waffles, a donut sandwich or crepes!
We might not be ice cream connoisseurs, but Kate and the kids tested it out for themselves. Here’s what they had to say:
Located at Yagan Square, which is a really short walk from the hotel, Jersey Jack Gelato offers 50% off when you show your wristbands! That’s such a great discount … and OMG the gelato is sooooo good! We loved having a sweet treat and enjoying all that Yagan Square had to offer too!
Offer: 50% off the total bill
The best playgrounds in Perth can be found at Kings Park. Hop off the Perth Explorer tour (or alternate public transport) and just a short bus ride out of the city will land you in one of the largest inner-city parks in the world. With a multitude of playgrounds playing host to free electric BBQ’s, drinking fountains and public toilets, you have everything you need for a good day out with kids. From the Tree Top Walk, to Rio Tinto Naturescape and Synergy Parkland full of dinosaurs, you’ll find plenty to do. To see what else is on offer at Kings Park, check out our blog.

Free, outdoor, kid friendly movies sound too good to be true right? Northbridge Piazza frequently host special movie nights for the kids with popcorn and bean bags to boot. Perfect spot to pack a picnic or enjoy some cheeky take away. It’ll feel like a huge treat!
Perth Mint Tour | VIK PARTNER
One of our favourite places to send families is The Perth Mint. You might be thinking that’s not very exciting for kids, but you’ll be surprised how much they love it!
Kate from South West Mums took us up on the challenge, and here’s what she had to say:
I never thought the Perth Mint would be a family friendly place to visit – but do you know what – it was actually one of the highlights of our trip! It was so kid friendly too! Hubby and I really enjoyed learning about the history and interesting facts and the boys were mesmerised by the gold pour and were welcomed by our lovely tour guide.
The Perth Mint offer a “Kid’s Challenge” where they are given a question “scratch” sheet that they can answer as the tour unfolds. There are two separate age groups which made it really accessible for all ages. Once the tour concluded, the boys were presented with medals by our tour guide – they were so chuffed!
Offer: Free entry to The Perth Mint Gold Exhibition for one child (aged 4 – 15) when accompanied by a paying adult
Yagan Square Play Space
Looking for somewhere to tire the kids out from their ice cream sugar rush? Yagan Square Play Space is located right on top of the building, just a few minutes from Jersey Jack Gelato. With different areas catering to each age, your kids will love the geological terrain and rock inspired formations.

Being in the city centre has its perks – one of which is being so close to amazing sporting games. Next time you’re in the city, why not see if there’s an event on at Perth Arena (4-5 minute walk away) or Optus Stadium (~15 minute bus). Ask our concierge to have a look at what’s on for you or check out the Perth Arena & Optus Stadium websites.
Live out your childhood dreams of being a mad scientist at Scitech, located in West Perth. Just a short CAT ride will transport you to another world. Explore the planetarium, expedition reef, or even experiment in a CSIRO Lab Workshop.
Ivy & Jack | VIK PARTNER
Top off a big day of exploring with a meal right in the heart of Perth City at Ivy & Jack. Kids Stay & Eat for Free for breakfast, lunch and dinner at our restaurant from a special kid’s menu which they’ll love!
We loved eating at Ivy & Jack while we stayed at Holiday Inn® Perth City. It was so family friendly.
Nothing was too much trouble, the tables were big (so important with clumsy kids), the kids were given fantastic activity packs when we arrived, plus kids under 12 eat free if you’re staying at the hotel (conditions do apply). And my boys are pretty fussy but wolfed down their food.
Some of the delicious meals hubs and I ate included seafood marinara (which was amazing) and a delicious beef burger served on a milk bun with onion rings (washed down with a beer of course).
The boys feasted on spaghetti bolognese and fish and chips. They loved the spaghetti so much they ordered it two nights in a row! We loved that the kids were served on colourful plastic plates with their own colourful cutlery too. It’s the little detail. – Kate
Offer: All kids under 12 years of age eat free when dining with an adult. Two kids eat free per one adult.
