Adventures on Wheels
Not everyone wants water, so go bush instead and explore Lane Poole Reserve in Dwellingup on mountain bikes with Dwellingup Adventures. Mandurah’s Mini Tout, the children’s sized Tourist Fun Train, or Hotham Valley Railway’s Steam Train in Dwellingup are popular with children, too.
The Fun of Climbing
Trees Adventure, Western Australia’s First Tree Ropes Course, is an exhilarating 2 hour experience with courses starting from easy to a little insane! Children can soar through the trees on an array of flying foxes and thrilling aerial challenges including an aerial skateboard. If they cannot get enough of climbing, head to Mandurah Indoor Rock Climbing Centre for some more action.
