A family guide to where to eat, stay & play in Perth.
Where to eat in Perth with kids
Go to this community farmer’s market to buy bacon and egg wrappers (the school parents give you to raise funds), and let the kids ride on the bouncy castle ($3) and the free kids’ activity table (starting at 9:30). There are also smoothies, donuts and gingerbread men, and you can eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Sometimes there are pet farms, face painters and puppet shows. There are no less than four playgrounds around the grass.
Address: Kyilla Park, Cliveden St &, Union St, North Perth WA 6006
CLANCY’S BEACH BAR
Clancy’s Beach Bar is Suitable for early risers, open at 6.30 in the morning, serving breakfast rolls, mini waffles and an outdoor coffee shop. It is about 5 steps away from the playground and only 10 meters from the sandy beach. This cafe is next to Clancy’s, a popular fish and chip bar with a relaxed atmosphere and incredible sea views. Inside, the little tongs will love colourful beach chairs and decorative ocean-themed ceilings. For a more refined breakfast, please walk across the parking lot to the Odyssea terrace (a squashed avo is great).
Address: 195 Challenger Parade, City Beach WA 6015
The brewery is good at keeping kids busy so that parents can enjoy their liquid amber, and Fremantle’s famous brewery, Little Creatures, is no exception. Pass through steel vats and the bustling open kitchen at the rear, overlooking the fishing harbour. Find a play pit filled with slides, blocks, truck toys, and small objects and crosses. Country fries always win, and parents should order meat kabobs.
Address: 40 Mews Rd, Fremantle WA 6160
Mandoon Estate is a lush and spacious Eden on the outskirts of Perth. The industrial district gives way to the vineyards, where everyone can find something suitable for them. Families with young children will be drawn to Llawn, which is dotted with picnic tables, opposite an enclosed playground (picnic rugs are also provided) and an art gallery. You can order pizza, fries, and picnic food at Spit Hut (yes, Dad, there are barbecues on the weekends). Or reserve a table at the bustling Homestead Brewery and enjoy burgers, pizzas, and bar food.
Address: 10 Harris Rd, Caversham WA 6055
This huge bar next to the new Optus Stadium in Perth is known as the largest bar in Australia. Tips for yourself: Before you enter, send your mobile phone number on little Johnny’s arm. We recommend Riverside Terrace (bring sunscreen) for parents who want to eat quietly while watching their children on the Burswood Park playground opposite. There is also a family-friendly lawned beer garden with Giant Jenga. Kid’s burgers and fish and chips are obviously the most popular.
Address: 1 Roger MacKay Dr, Burswood WA 6100
You can buy double copies here. There is the exquisite island Market restaurant in pale pink and white wood overlooking the Indian Ocean, which serves exquisite Middle Eastern cuisine, or the casual partner restaurant Canteen, which exudes the aroma of fish tacos and hot fries. Everyone has eaten murals or takeout. The Island Market has a sunken area for children to play (toys have been removed since COVID19) and an outdoor area with a dining table; the boxes of chicken with toast and cheese are comparable to the ones with fish and chips. I found a canteen under the same roof, next to the playground and coastal walkway. Both attractions allow you to enjoy the beautiful Perth sunset from your circus seat.
Address: 364 W Coast Dr, Trigg WA 6029
THE SUNSHINE HARVESTER WORKS
Hidden in the old warehouse is a series of vendors serving hot burgers, wood-fired pizza, Asian street food and ice cream, and a small beer next door de it Factory and winery (also fun for adults, right?). Go straight to Airstream’s silver caravan – Dumplings Perth is run by former MasterChef contestant and meatball pro-Brendan Pang. Adults will like the Sichuan chicken dumplings, while the kids will like the crispy pork wontons. Check the opening hours of the independently managed venue, and there is a spacious floor for children to walk around.
Address: 2/1 James Street Corner Beach y, James St, Fremantle WA 6160
THE RITZ-CARLTON, PERTH
The first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Australia The hotel is fresh and pleasant, suitable for children. In addition to providing teepees and treasure hunts for younger guests, the hotel’s children’s menu can also allow adults to spend a special evening. Hearth (elegant restaurant-reserved seats) and Songbird (lounge bar with high views of Elizabeth Quay-sitting on the deck outside) share an easy-to-handle lamb chop and easy-to-make chicken nuggets menu, fries and spaghetti. Should we mention the banana split dessert without sauce? For kids unlikely to be sedentary, the hotel offers afternoon tea gift baskets to go, including coconut lamington, honey mousse, and passion fruit muffin.
Address: 1 Barrack St, Perth WA 6000
Stop arguing about taste and save a few pennies on Chicho’s tasting flight; family-run, we think this is Perth’s best ice cream place. A single flavour egg cone costs $ 5, but a five-flavour tasting flight costs $ 17 and covers the whole family. Trust us; you must try the pistachios, caramelized fries and white chocolate macadamia made from scratch. Wow, try anything; this is all great.
Address: 180 William St, Northbridge WA 6003
Superstar Waffles is located in the narrow arcade of the modern and rough Northbridge, which feels very street. But even the coolest kids will feel knee weakness once a hot plate of customized waffles is placed on them. Go all out to eat cream, banana coffee or chocolate fudge, or eat something healthier and full of fresh fruit (well, ice cream). Tim Tam Slam may put the children into a coma, but my goodness, those banana puddings and melted chocolate puddles are worth it.
