5 Places to Travel in Western Australia These Summer Holidays
With warmer days and longer nights, now is the time to explore Western Australia and make the most of the summer holidays. So get the family together and start planning your holiday under the sun. We’ve put together a list of 5 attractions to visit during your trip, plus affordable accommodation nearby to make planning stress-free.
AQWA (Aquarium of Western Australia)
Take the family for an adventure at AQWA. The kids will learn all about WA’s marine life in the daily “Sea School” program through song, stories, and craft. You can take a self-guided tour of the aquarium and come face-to-fin with giant sharks, turtles, stingrays and more! While in town, explore these spots around the city to get the most out of your Perth trip, then top it off with a stay at Nightcap at Belgian Beer Cafe.
A trip to the zoo with the whole family will make for a great day out these summer holidays. Try the “Close Encounters” daily program for an up close experience with rhinos, giraffes, lions, penguins, elephants and more animals. There’s also free guided walk tours with a zoo keeper and plenty of regular kids events running throughout the year. While here, experience more of WA with these attractions, then relax from all the sightseeing with a stay at Nightcap at Belgian Beer Cafe.
This Instagrammable lake will delight your family with its bright pink hues caused by algae, high salinity and light. See it at Hutt Lagoon in Geraldton and pack a picnic while you’re here, or head to the lookout to take in all of the lake’s pink glory. Of course, don’t forget to take some photos! While in Geraldton, check out these other attractions and stay over at Nightcap at Wintersun Hotel.
Next Level Monkey Business and Aquastatic
If adrenaline and fun is on the summer agenda, take the family to Next Level Monkey Business & Aquatastic. The zipline and ropes park caters for every age; everyone will enjoy zig-zagging, swinging, climbing and making a monkey of themselves. For more summer fun there’s Aquastatic, Australia’s largest inflatable water park. It’s right on the Busselton foreshore, with easy access to Nightcap at the Ship Inn.
