Summer. Long balmy evenings, school holidays and a little more time to spend making memories with family and friends. With the hustle and bustle of Christmas over, the next few weeks are a great time to explore your local neighbourhood and ensure you don’t hear the dreaded “I’m bored” until the kids are ready to head back to school!


Host a BBQ

What better way to show off your new home than by hosting a summer BBQ. Making the most of your new kitchen and outdoor area in your spacious Kinmore Green home, invite your nearest and dearest for an afternoon of delicious bites, fun for the kids and some socialising for you. We recommend easy salads, some staples for the BBQ and outdoor games for the kids – big and little. The smells and sounds of the perfect Aussie barbie. For some BBQ inspiration, we have just the trick:

Aquamotion Wanneroo 

If you’re keen on getting out of the house for an afternoon, particularly on a long hot summer’s day, put Aquamotion Wanneroo on the top of your list. Less than a 15-minute drive from Kinmore Green, this is a family friendly fitness and leisure centre located in the heart of Wanneroo. Whilst it features a fully equipped gym,group fitness classes and  fully tailored personal training, we think it’s the fantastic aquatic facilities that you’ll come back to again and again. The children’s splash pad is a hit with the younger kids and parents alike – an outdoor pool, covered with a shade cloth, the splash pad features several water features which will keep the children entertained for hours. 

Easy, convenient and a fun day out for all, visit this link for more information:

Landsdale farm

A great day out for families of all ages. With animal feeding, cart rides and many farm animals to visit, there is something for everyone at Landsdale Farm. There’s storytime and craft for mini farmers, and a multitude of animals to discover during your visit from pigs to guinea pigs, peacocks to ponies. Animals aside there are lovely gardens for picnicking and playgrounds in the shade – and don’t forget to hunt for gnomes hidden in the gardens whilst you’re there. There’s a weekday and weekend schedule posted on their website so head on over for all the details and to plan your next day out at the farm.


Perth Ice Arena    

Whilst traditionally we think of ice skating as a winter activity – here in Perth what better time to give it a try than the summer holidays when it’s hot and we’re looking for ways to stay cool! Head to Perth Ice Arena in Malaga, just a 10-minute drive from Kinmore Green and try it for yourself. From novice through to figure skating everyone is welcome to give it a go and who knows perhaps discover your inner Torvill or Dean…

Kingsway Aquatic Play Space 

Just a 5-minute drive from home Kingsway Aquatic Play Space will be your go to over the holidays. Also known as Kingsway Dinosaur Park, it’s located at Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex and has a new fully enclosed water play space. The shaded area has a variety of water play for the kids to enjoy – a splash pad, sprays and jets from above and below and a tipping bucket! The water is on daily from 8am until 7pm and the water features can be activated via the push button just inside the gate.

Hillarys Boat Harbour 

Pack the boardies and a beach umbrella and hop in the car for a day trip to Hillarys, don’t forget the sunscreen! The shallow calm waters are suitable for all swimming abilities and is an ideal spot for families to relax and enjoy the water without worrying about waves catching the kids unaware. The Boardwalk has food galore and is sure to have something for even the fussiest of eaters – not to mention multiple choices when it comes to ice cream! Between the water and the boardwalk, you can swim, eat and drink to your heart’s content.
