The Novotel Vines Resort, Swan Valley

By Buggybuddys Jennie

If you are seeking a relaxing family getaway this summer but don’t fancy jumping on a plane or enduring a long car journey coupled with "Are we there yet?", then look no further than the recently refurbished The Novotel Vines Resort in the picturesque Swan Valley, located just 35 minutes from Perth CBD.


All the rooms at the resort have recently been transformed thanks to a $4 million refurbishment.  The rooms are to a high standard with luxury modern bathrooms featuring rain showers and brand new plush beds.  

A welcome sight was our very own coffee machine! I am useless in the morning without my cup of coffee!


The beds in the room were super comfy and as a result both Miss 7 and Miss 4 managed to sleep the whole night in their own bed – something that is very rare in our home!


Each room features a MediaHub – an all in one audio/connectivity panel enabling you to connect your own devices (DVD player, games console, laptop, etc) to the room’s television. A great feature if you are travelling with kids and they want to watch their favourite DVD’s.

Most rooms have balconies or patios overlooking the vines. We checked into a first floor double queen room which overlooked the beautiful golf course. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony watching the kangaroos hop around the green.


If you have a room on the ground floor you are more than likely to receive a visit from one of the resident kangaroos to your patio.


If you fancied a bit more space the resort also offers 2 and 3 bedroomed condominiums that consist of lounge, dining area and limited kitchen facilities. All condominiums have an ensuite and second bathroom.

The pool area at The Novotel Vines Resort is very family-friendly. Within the enclosed area which is accessed with your room key, you’ll find a large swimming pool complete with Jacuzzi spa which is under shade and lovely and warm.

For younger children there is a separate paddling pool that is fully shaded and surrounded by sun loungers.


To the side of the pool there is a lawned area with a giant chessboard and a swing ball was set up.  There is also an electric BBQ within the pool area that is free to use for hotel guests.


The pool bar opens during the summer months and serves a range of cold drinks, hot dogs, sandwiches and light snacks.  

If you wanted to pamper yourself (and what mum doesn’t deserve to be pampered) the Keishi Day Spa is located within the pool area and offers a wide range of heavenly packages.  Click here to view the treatments and pricing.


There is a choice of dining options at the resort.  The Vines Café and Bar is particularly family friendly with a choice of dining inside or alfresco on the shaded terrace which overlooks the resort’s recently installed playground.  

There are tables located right next to the playground so you can enjoy a relaxing meal in peace while the kids burn off energy climbing and sliding!  The Vines Café and Bar offers a casual dining menu as well as a kids menu from 12pm – 9pm daily.  You can view their menu here.


We decided that the menu at Muscats Restaurant looked too mouth-watering not to try so we opted to dine there. The restaurant is fine dining and they offer a kids menu. Highchairs are available. Booking is essential, especially on the weekend. As I booked quite late we were only able to reserve a table for 8pm which was perfect for us but too late for the kids to eat. That proved not to be a problem as we had a drink in the bar before hand and we were able to order dinner for the kids from Muscats children’s menu and have it served in the bar.  


They shared a kids meal of chicken strips, chips and salad ($12). It was a generous serving and I was really impressed with the quality of the chicken strips. It was proper breaded chicken breast and the kids devoured it! 

The food at Muscats Restaurant is divine! The portions are not huge but they are beautifully presented and full of flavor. I selected the Slow Cooked Pork Belly served with Crispy Squid salad and roasted sesame & soy dressing ($40)


My husband chose the Seared Lamb Backstrap, confit shoulder ravioli, pea textures, fondant potato & jus ($38).

The kids enjoyed a vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce ($3) whilst we ate our mains.  

To finish we couldn’t resist the Vines Snickers – peanut parafait, candied peanuts, chocolate soil ($16). That was sooooo good!


Our stay included buffet breakfast at Muscats Restaurant. On offer was a wide selection of breakfast favourites from eggs & bacon to pancakes, cereal and fruit salad. Tea and coffee is included and is ordered from the barista station and brought to your table when ready.


This summer the resort is offering the Summer Escape Passport which enables you to make the most of your stay at the resort with a range of vouchers for dining and golf valued at $275 to use throughout your stay.

The voucher book includes:
- 2 ice-creams from Greenside or the Pool Bar
- Two Hot Dogs from Greenside of the Pool Bar
- Coffee & Cake for two at the Vines Café
-  Bottle of wine at the Vines Café
- Two free caps from the Resort Shop
- Bucket of Coors Beers at Greenside or Vines Café
- Golf Buggy and hire clubs for two at either Lakes or Ellenbrook course.

The Summer Escape passport is free for Christmas stays booked by 15th December or it can be purchased from reception on arrival for just $50.

Every Friday evening throughout summer a Family Friendly Hole in One Competition takes place. Action starts from 5pm and you can win up to $500. Kids under 12 get their first 3 balls free. Click here to find out more

Zippizap Balance Bike Review

By Georgia

Balance Bikes aim to be the only bike your child will need to develop their riding skills and successfully transfer onto their first pedal bike without training wheels. With a balance bike, a child learns balance and confidence with their feet on the ground. They develop skills of coordination and control, learning to steer and balance the bike without the hindrance of pedals.

The Zippizap Balance Bike is designed for riders Aged 18 months – 5 years. I was excited to try out the Zippizap on Miss 3. It arrived in a box, ready to be assembled by Hubby. This proved to be a super quick process – with only 5 parts to be joined: the lightweight frame; two wheels; a handle bar and a seat. Using one spanner, Hubby tightened the wheels into place, and then by hand he firmly secured the seat and handle bars. Voila! I can see many parents thrilled with this quick and easy assembly on Christmas Eve!


 Miss 3’s Zippizap bike is a gorgeous dusty pink colour with white wheels – named “Beautiful Butterfly”. There are other striking colour combinations to choose from such as “Flashing Policeman” which has a black frame with blue wheels, or “Mad Scientist” which has a red frame with one black wheel and one red wheel!

Miss 3 got very excited when she saw the Zippizap for the first time and couldn’t get outside fast enough to try it. She got onto the seat with ease, and instinctively began pushing her feet along to make the bike move. At first she seemed fascinated that there weren’t any pedals but then happy not to have them banging into her shins as they usually do on her tricycle. To begin with she did struggle a bit to keep the frame balanced when she lifted her feet off the ground, but after a few tries she was already improving as she worked out how to use her feet to push off and how to balance and steer at the same time. After a day or two she had really nailed it and she was zipping up and down our driveway confidently.


The lightweight high tensile steel frame (2.8kgs only) makes it the lightest balance bike around and very durable – it can be left out in the rain with no degradation! Miss 3 can pick it up all by herself with no strain at all, and it can be easily packed into the car for visits to the park or taking on holiday.

One of the Zippizap’s features that I love is that the tyres are maintenance free and never need pumping up! They are made of EVA polymer, which is industrial strength foam that is super light and very durable, and allows for a smooth ride.

The seat can be adjusted in height, which means that the Zippizap will really grow with your child. This also comes in handy if siblings or friends want to use the bike, as the seat can be speedily adjusted on the spot with its quick release capability. The handlebars can be modified as well to suit the rider’s age.

Balance bikes are becoming more popular today because they are fast proving to be better than bicycles with training wheels. They achieve quicker results to start children riding confidently. Balance bikes can also be used for a long period of time, and can be passed on to siblings in the family so they really are a good investment.

This Zippizap Balance Bike sells for $119.95, and comes with a 3 year warranty on the frame.

Santa Perth - the best places to visit for Santa Pictures in Perth

Guide and list of the best Santa pictures in Perth for kids and pets!

Getting your childs' Santa Perth pictures seems like quite a stressful and costly experience, so Buggybuddys has taken to the shopping centres to do a spot of research to help all the families out there have an enjoyable and cost effective experience.


Tops tips for Santa Pictures in Perth:

  • All the Santa experiences we talked to allow your kids to visit Santa without having to have photographs taken, don’t feel pressured if you don’t want to have pictures done
  • Go with a budget in mind – use our guide below to give you an indication of what you’ll be paying.  Prices start from $19.95 for one printed photo
  • Think about what to dress your kids/babies in before you go to visit Santa
  • Talk to your kids about visiting Santa before you go, tell them what the kids do when they get there etc..  Visit the centre/store with your child/children and have a look at Santa a few times before going to have photo’s taken to make them feel at ease
  • Be prepared to sit in on the photo to make your child feel more comfortable.
  • Prepare a letter to Santa to post in the post box – a great experience and all the centres that do this promise to write back if you have a return address on the letter and envelope
  • Don’t be afraid to tell the photographer if you don’t like the photo’s, ask for more to be taken or go back later and try again

santa pictures perth - harvey norman.jpg

Here is a list of shopping centres that are offering Santa photography. We'll be adding to this list as we keep receiving more information.

Karrinyup Shopping Centre
Saturday 7th November until Christmas Eve.

Our Santa photo company, ‘Scene to Believe’, are supporting the CREATE Foundation by donating $1 from every photo package purchased throughout the campaign. In the spirit of giving, a cool view finder will be given to every child who visits Santa (while stocks last).

10am - 7pm (Thursdays)

For all full price list click here.

A few mums I’ve spoken to have had a great experience here and love that the Santa has a real beard. Best time to go is around 1pm when most of our little one’s are sleeping. Santa can also be visited at Myer in Karrinyup Centre.

Lakeside, Joondalup
Santa photos 8th November - 24th December
Everybody loves Santa 'Ken' with families coming back year after year to visit him. He is a lovely chap and has a real beard. 

santa pictures in perth.jpg

This year's Santa set is a cute Toy Village with moving puppets in each of the 'shop' windows.


Myers Santaland, Perth CBD
Open from Friday 13th November.

Myers Santaland claims to be the next best thing to Christmas morning for kids, with FREE interactive games and activities for kids of all ages.
Santaland is on the 2nd floor through the Christmas shop area. This year you can book your Santa session online which means no queuing for hours. Hurray! You can visit Santaland without having to visit the man himself and it's totally free.

You can park your stroller in the buggy park, then you’re given a gold train ticket to use for the train as you enter Santaland.  The train itself is a great experience if you can get your child to sit on it on their adults and your child must be able to sit upright throughout the train ride.

 There’s also a TV which was screening Frozen when we visited accompanied by some rather funky Santa Boot stools so you can take a pew and watch the movie.

There’s a huge chimney stack where you can write, post or email your letter to Santa and drawing and paper made especially for the occasion.


When it's your turn to visit Santa one of the friendly elves will come and escort you to his room. A nice touch is that the elves will ask your child their name before they enter the room so once they get to see Santa he is able to greet them by their name. 

You don't have to pay for a picture taken to have some time with Santa. If you are opting for the photo package (which start at $24.95) then your child can opt to sit on Santa's knee or on one of the cushions next to his chair. My daughter was quite happy to have a chat with santa but refused point blank to have her picture taken. The photographer and Santa were very accommodating and did try to coax her but she was having none of it so we left without a picture! 

We loved the Rudolph that was sleeping by the fire. His chest moved up and down as he breathed and every so often he would flick his tail. 

Christmas Trees of Wanneroo Farm
If you are looking for a less formal Santa Photo this year then Penny Butler Photography will be at the Christmas Trees of Wanneroo Farm at 99 Rousset Road, from 28th November offering professional mini photoshoots with Santa. Cost is $60 which includes a 15 minute shoot with 4 edited images provided on a CD. Bookings essential. Contact Penny on 0425 804 075. 

Sensory Santa
Have you always wanted to take your Kids to see Santa but have been worried about how they might react?
Do your Kids have sensory challenges and would be fine to see Santa if only they didn’t have to wait in line with the crowds, feel the pressure of time and the noise of lots of people walking around?
Well Sensitive Santa could be exactly what your child needs in order to visit with Santa this year.

Baldivis Parks, Baldivis

By Buggybuddys

Bounce into Baldivis Parks - Wendy Turland 

With so much new and exciting development going on in Baldivis you would expect a new play park to match up.... and it doesn't disappoint! 

Located in the new Baldivis Parks Estate, the play park is made unique by having four mini in-ground trampolines. These are super for kids of all ages and really are something different for them to find at a play park.


There is a large rope climbing frame, a sandpit area and a cool nest swing. This is all next to half basketball court, making the area suitable for children of all ages to explore and enjoy.  

                                                                                                                        The play park is situated in a wide open green space, so there is plenty of room to have a good run around.  

There are two covered picnic tables and BBQ facilities well positioned so you can see the children while they play. There is plenty of parking all around the park but unfortunately no toilets facilities. 

Top tip - we grabbed a coffee from the Baldivis shopping centre and used the baby change facilities there before we hit the park.

Although the park is small, the diverse equipment makes it well worth a visit and I would recommend a playdate here.

The park is located off Baldivis road in Baldivis Parks Estate, it is a new development and not yet on google maps. I would use Ingram road as your reference and then turn into the new development, drive past the sales office and the park is on your left. Click here to see the map

Ravens Coffee, Denmark

By Buggybuddys

Review by Stephanie Rae

We have often found ourselves passing through the divine town of Denmark enroute to all the culinary offerings this amazing area serves up. This usually occurs during the "in between meal time" part of the day and with kids in tow, usually coincides with back seat shenanigans. However these little irritability buds can quickly be nipped with a coffee/shake/snack break.

The defect with our road trip quick fix, is we're a bit fussy when it comes to what we consume, which can get a little tricky when hunting down real whole foods. We've had some hit and miss success as far as quality coffee/shake/snack breaks go. Until recently.

We discovered Ravens Coffee (not like a "Wilson" discovery as it's pretty much the first thing you see when you enter and exit the town!) and it's real, raw, organic and fresh. 

The coffee is amazing and being quite the fussy Iced coffee drinker I've been very happy when ordering here. No powders, no syrup, no miscellaneous mysteries just really good coffee and extra shots for each child I have to deal with. Awesome. My husband, who is continuously disappointed when he orders a Macchiato topped up (which apparently is super common to get completely wrong), was rewarded with exactly what he asked and paid for and more. Joy. 

The smoothies were the highlight for us and a quiet parenting win. Chockablock loaded with goodies like cacao, chia, spirulina and the added bonus of flavour without tipping the kids into a sugar frenzy. Seriously, there's nothing better looking than a rear mirror view of calm, satiated children. Bliss.

We've only ever ordered the raw sweet treats and the short time it's taken for said treats to be devoured is a testament to their freshness, flavour and general yumminess.

Plenty of seating options in this eclectically adorned establishment both indoors and out, the latter serving up ridiculously pretty Denmark views.  

We are yet to have a meal here, but for our "just passing through" needs Ravens Coffee definitely meets our brief.

Borello Park, Roleystone

By Buggybuddys

Review by Stephanie Rae

Set in the heart of beautiful Roleystone Borrello Park has something for everyone! Only 15 minutes from Armadale and yet it feels like you've travelled hours down south!

The park has actually kept part of its original structures which are a little old school but nice for the children to experience. A lovely walkway fort and slide crosses over the running brook below. The equipment is high up so probably accompanying very little ones is best. There is also a seated area underneath for children to gather and ponder!

The main park has a huge modern play fort with ramps, slides, stepping stones, rockers, diggers and swings just to name a few. 

While Borrello caters to the traditional playground goers, nature based play enthusiasts won't be disappointed. There is a running brook that provides hours of fun and entertainment and children can have a splash, catch tadpoles, leaf races or just meander alongside the stream. It's not deep but with all bodies of water and children, supervision is the best precaution. 

The park has wide open grassed spaces so there is plenty of room for running and frolicking or just relaxing under the beautiful shady spots created by the magnificent trees.

This is also a popular picnic spot with one bbq available and some tables and chairs nearby. There is also a gazebo opposite the park further up from the toilet block.

There is ample parking in two sections and thanks to community appeal, there is now an eco toilet adjacent the carpark off Billeroy Rd.

Borrello Park is on Orchid Drive and Billeroy Road just off Brookton Highway.

Coogee Beach Playground, Coogee 

By Buggybuddys

Review by Stephanie Rae

It's been many years since I visited Coogee Beach. Thankfully not much has changed. The beautiful lush grass strip is still there and is perfect for a game of cricket or dusting off the old frisbee or kicking the ball around. My daughter thought it was her racing track and proceeded to show off her running skills to who ever was interested.

There is a park for the kids with swings, flying fox and a slide which madam was content with for an hour or so. There is also a fair amount of shade sails right next to it which was ideal after a swim to dry off out of the wind and re-group on the grass.

Of course Coogee beach is right over the hill and even though it was a windy day, it wasn't that rough. We parked up under the jetty for shade but I'd say these spots get snapped up early, so if you prefer to stay out of the sun, probably pack a beach tent or umbrella. There is also the shark net barrier that we chose to swim within, though a lot of others were swimming up along the strip of coast. Overall it was lovely a swim and a pleasant beach. There were heaps of Mums around with little ones who were happy splashing at the shore and others like mine who were just thrilled chasing the waves and building castles.

There is plenty of parking and also the Coogee Beach Cafe is handy for lunch and a drink. We took our own snacks so little miss was happy with an icy pole treat after her swim.

There are also plenty of gazebos lined along the outskirts of the grassed area. These probably get occupied quickly in the hotter months, so probably arrive early.

There's nothing mindblowing about this playground. It has the standard equipment, plenty of shade and a lovely patch of grass. Coogee has copped a bit in the past for perhaps being a bit "rough", however it seemed safe, secure with mainly families and retirees around who were all quite friendly and civil. It's convenient and uncomplicated which sometimes is all one really needs.

Platypus Australia Swimwear Review

By Georgia

Miss 3 and Miss 7 love anything to do with water, and they are growing so fast that every summer I have been buying new swimwear for them. This year I am eagerly trying out Platypus Swimwear. The gorgeous designs in their Girls Collection make it tricky to decide, but I settled on a fresh eye-catching Watermelon pattern for Miss 7 and a pretty floral (called Lace) in pastel colours for Miss 3.

Platypus Australia is an online swimwear brand that offers high quality UV sun protection for girls and boys (sizes 0–14). The mix-and-match swimwear range is designed to allow kids to be active yet comfortable and stylish, all while protected from the sun. Other designs include paisley and mosaic patterns, as well as roses and other florals in attractive and striking colour combinations.

The website is easy to navigate and there are clear pictures of all the products. I ordered online and my parcel arrived within a few days. For Miss 3 I ordered a set consisting of a Lycra Boardshort (with drawstrings) and a Short Sleeve Rash Guard. The sleeves actually reach to just beyond her elbows, so they provide good protection but don’t hamper her movements. The high collar of the Rashie helps protect the neck from the sun too.

To be extra sun cautious I also ordered the matching Lace collection Cap, which has a protective neck flap. It is lightweight with a gentle elastic fit and flexible peak, and is great for wearing in the water. With its quick drying fabric it can get wet and help keep her head cool but not stay soaked and uncomfortable.

Miss 7 desperately wanted a pretty swimsuit. With ruffles, a lovely bikini style neckline and crossover straps at the back, this singlet set met with her fashion savvy approval. She just loves the watermelon pattern with the green trim. I must say it’s bang on trend this season too with watermelon designs popping up everywhere. The adjustable straps also allow for a comfy and secure fit. The singlet is long so that no tummy is exposed, which as a fussy mum, I like.

All Platypus Swimwear blocks out more than 97.5% of Ultraviolet Radiation. The materials are UPF 50+ and are composed of 80% Nylon and 20% Lycra which gives the swimwear just the right amount of stretch without it being saggy. This material is said to last 10 times longer against Chlorine than Elastane, which ensures the swimwear is Ultra Chlorine Resistant. It also has good shape-retention and breathability.

My girls are fussy about labels, so it was an added bonus that there are no scratchy labels sewn into the Rashie or the Singlet. Instead the label is printed on the inside. The shorts and bottoms do have fabric labels but they are very soft and not scratchy at all.

As with most good quality swimwear one is still advised to rinse them after use, and treat them with care. The Platypus Australia website provides tips for how to care for your new Swimwear:

·      Rinse well in cool water after use

·      Lay flat in shade to dry

·      Do not pack or store while wet

·      Hand wash with mild detergent

·      Do not machine wash

·      Do not bleach, soak or iron

·      Drip dry in shade, do not tumble dry

·      Be careful with rough surfaces such as concrete and swimming pool edges

·      Because of the tight weave of the fabric, sand can easily be trapped. Remove all sand grains by rinsing your garment or carefully stretch dry fabric over thumbnail and sand will drop out

Platypus Swimwear boasts Girls, Boys and Baby Collections, as well as a few accessories (such as terry tunics and beach bags), and a small collection of swimsuits and useful sun jackets (with zips) for women.

Free Shipping is offered on all orders over $100. There is also currently an offer to receive a 10% discount off your first order.

These quality swimwear collections with their gorgeous designs are bound to set your child apart on the beach or by the pool this summer!

Sensations Cafe Busselton

By Buggybuddys - Lorraine

Sensations Café is situated in the Marina area north of Busselton Jetty.  We happed to be staying in a holiday rental and were waiting for our check-in time so headed to Sensations for some lunch with our kids and dog. 


I had researched Google to find dog friendly cafés in Busselton and Sensations came up.  You never know what to expect though but lucky for us we could tie up Chester (our dog) on the grass in the Alfresco area with a bowl of water.  We headed inside, as it was cold and drizzling.


There are two options for dining, on the veranda which is shaded and covered or inside with lovely views of the harbour. 

The lunch menu consisted of a variety of fresh salads, quiches, burgers and pasta dishes.  Being Gluten Free there wasn’t a massive amount of options for me but a few ticked the box. 

The kids enjoyed mini kids beef burgers with salad and chips.


I had a steak with salad and some pumpkin.


My husband had a HUGE burger with all the trimmings, salad and chips. 

My Mum (Nanna) enjoyed a vegetarian quiche with salad and chips.


For dessert there are plenty of beautifully crafted cakes and slices to choice from include fresh scones, jam and cream. 

The kids enjoyed the colouring in (as always!) sheets provided by the restaurant and Lollie had her's put up on the display wall in the restaurant :-)
