The winter school holidays are just around the corner and sometimes it can hard to constantly come up with fresh ideas to keep the kids occupied. But don’t let the cooler weather dampen your spirits, there is still plenty to do around Brightwood Baldivis to keep the kids entertained for hours on end. 

Baldivis Children’s Forest 

Brave the cold, grab your gumboots and venture outdoors to Baldivis Children’s Forest. This sprawling, unique 20-hectare public reserve, was created and maintained as a bushland reserve for kids to enjoy as a conservation wetland. Local students have played a key role in establishing plants indigenous to the area – providing a natural and safe habitat for a whole range of animal, reptiles and bird species. Head to to find out more. 

Inflatable World

Home to the biggest indoor inflatable playgrounds in Australia, this fun filled venue is located slightly further afield in Mandurah but well worth the visit. This play space is all about having fun, so bring the whole family and bounce away – it’s not just for the kids and we recommend joining in with your kids.  Find out more here.

Catch a Movie Feel like escaping the rain and staying warm and cosy these holidays? The we suggest paying a visit to ACE Cinema Rockingham and catching a movie. With a great selection of new releases to choose from and an endless supply of buttery, warm popcorn, your kids won’t want to spend their holidays anywhere else. Check out their session times here
