Family days out are the stuff that memories are made of. And for anyone who lives near, or is visiting, the Swan Valley then boy-oh-boy do you have an amazing natural playground in which to spread your wings.
And the best thing about the Swan Valley is the sheer variety of incredible days out to choose from. The following will whet your appetite for your next adventure with your nearest and dearest, with each option being more than suitable for kids (and big kids) of all ages.
Embrace Mother Nature
Revel in the glory of the outdoors at the incredible Whiteman Park. Start the day out with a bike ride or a bush walking trail, enjoy a ride on a vintage train, discover the Australia of old in the fascinating transport museums, feed the kangaroos, meet Rusty the camel… There’s so much to do here for the whole family. Plus, nearly half of all the Park’s land is dedicated to the conservation of wildlife – so while you’re having fun you’re also contributing to the ongoing beauty of our wonderful region.
Perfect spot for a bit of lunch…
After a busy morning exploring Whiteman’s Park, take some time out for lunch and slow the pace with an authentic German restaurant experience at Elmar’s in the Valley. Boasting one of the best dining experiences in the Swan Valley, here you can re-fuel on authentic German cuisine, sup a genuine German beer from the on-site micro-brewery, relax and be served by an attentive team who really know how to welcome the whole of the family.
If the kids still have energy to burn, they can run it off in two-acre biergarten and playground, specifically designed as a safe place for the little ones, while the parents can relax. Elmar’s has become a pretty iconic Swan Valley dining experience, so it’s advisable to book in advance. And the good news is that they’re open for lunch on most public holidays and don’t charge a PH surcharge, bonus! To secure your table visit their website for more details.
