Mills Park in Beckenham is a 24ha recreational space that been transformed to create a community hub to increase sporting, leisure and social opportunities while protecting and celebrating the park’s natural assets.
The Mills Park Nature Play Space is an awesome playground suitable for children of all ages. The play space is nicely set out over a large area with plenty of space for families to throw down a picnic rug and spend the day.
A large smooth concrete slide with an adjacent log and rock balancing area.
A Spider net
A birds nest swing
A wide range of timber climbing apparatus.
Double flying fox
A roundabout and swinging hammock
A fantastic water play area.
The playground also contains a path network that incorporates the existing wetlands area of the park which can be used for scooter and bicycle riding.
There are plenty of BBQ’s and picnic shelters positioned on the outskirts of the nature play area plus a large expanse of grassy space. A café is planned to open at the playground in the near future.
Toilets are housed in the Mills Park Centre and there is plenty of parking available.
Outside of the toilets is a climbing boulder.
Mills Park Nature Play Space is located on Brixton Street in Beckenham.

Love it when theres a new cafe that is scootable from home! Nic & Kolo in applecross took over formerly Jacs in June and have revamped the place and it is now looking very bright and airy. A much needed addition to Applecross village. We took the opportunity to try it out one fine sunny morning. Nic & Kolo is located towards the applecross end of Ardross street.
Their menu is extensive and even has a special kids menu. Its always good to know that the little ones are well catered for. We decided on the buttermilk pancakes with slab bacon and the nut and seed cracker with avocado and poached eggs. Both were heavenly. Do also check out their website for meal specials such as $17 chargrilled rump steak and fries (wednesdays from 2.30pm) and also $15 Angus burger and beer (Thurs from 2.30pm).
When we were there they were having an opening special, free cupcakes fromMarguerite Cakes, We had the matcha black sesame and salted caramel and they were simply to die for! They sell them on the weekends so do look out for them, flavours changes weekly.
After our yummy breakfast, we continued our scooting journey to applecross foreshore, which is only a 5 minutes walk from the cafe. The little one had great fun running around the field and watched some fishermen fishing off the jetty. We finished our lovely morning with a play at the playground. Twas a lovely morning indeed.

Frisch and Barć opened its doors a couple of months ago and its proven to be a big hit. We managed to pay them a visit for breakfast one day before heading to the zoo. It is conveniently located along canning highway in Como, South Perth. Easily identified by their iconic ‘fly’ logo.
When we got there, there were a couple of people before us waiting for a table. A lady came up and promptly took our names down and we waited outside till our table was ready, which wasn’t that long after all.
Orders are taken at the counter. While I was lining up, these gluten free cakes caught my eyes and boy do they look good, especially the one with the syringe filled with salted caramel goodness (from the gluten free table).
All parents will probably recognise where their table number picture comes from, good talking point with the kids. We ordered out usual coffees but instead of a babycino for the little one this time, we ordered the hot chocolate with toasted marshmallow on the side. It was heavenly. Skip the babycino this time and treat your little munchkin to this.
Hot chocolate with toasted marshmellow.
Little one’s scrambled eggs on toast.
Their signature Brioche french toast. Coconut and pandan custard, berry and apple compote with crushed pistachio.
Apple and pear bircher muesli with yoghurt, toasted coconut flesh, freeze dried lychees and mix berry compote.
Our meal was very satisfying. Service was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back and this time I’ve got my eyes set on the Singapore chilli crab omelette.

Halloween night is when all things spooky come out to play, from ghosts to witches and anything in between. To ensure that you have a spooktacular evening of fun we’ve put together some top tips for how to celebrate on the 31st October.
1. Set the scene with
Nothing shouts Halloween better than the striking combination of orange and black. Discount shops will stock plenty of cheap decorations to inspire you, from spider webs and bats, to eerie doorbell chimes and scary skeletons. If you are feeling traditional, you can buy a real pumpkin and carve out a Jack-o-lantern that will look really effective lit up at your front door. In the lead up to Halloween, you can also get the kids on the job with easy Halloween craft kits that can be used as decorations for the frightening festivities.
2. Make ghoulish drinks
To serve a creepy drink you can add blended spinach to a healthy fruit punch to turn it a slimy green colour. No one will taste the spinach, but it will make your punch look the part! Add some gummy worms for an extra gruesome touch. To create a Dracula blood punch use red cranberry juice and ginger ale. Orange Fanta makes a fun and easy Halloween drink if you aren’t feeling creative.
3. Serve frightening
There are so many creative ideas for spooky and tasty Halloween snacks, just a Google away. Try out Marshmallow Ghosts, Eyeball Cake Pops, Meringue Bones, Blood-splattered Cookies, Candy Spiders, Witches’ Fingers and Graveyard Puddings, to name but a few. See Buggybuddys guide to easy Halloween food ideas.
4. Play a gross guess-what-you-are-touching game
Drape a box with black cloth and have the kids reach in and touch different items without them looking at what they are touching… Cooked spaghetti feels like slippery worms or monster intestines. A bowl of canned peaches feels like slugs, and overcooked rice coated with oil feels like maggots. Peeled grapes make great eyeballs, and dried apricots can feel like ears. Make sure you have wet wipes for cleaning sticky fingers afterwards.
5. Dress up & go Trick or Treating in your neighbourhood
Your local council or a proactive neighbor may have sent out instructions as to how to mark your house for trick or treating on Halloween night. Some suggest a sticker or balloon on the postbox, or a note on the door. In general if a house is decorated it would be safe to say they would welcome little monsters seeking sweet treats. But be mindful of people that do not want to be disturbed – outside lights turned off may be a clue to avoid that house. Also be aware that some Kids costumes are not flame resistant so be careful around open flame candles.
If you prefer to keep the festivities to home then why not set up a super scary Haunted Garden Walk-through. All you need is a few creepy sounds, fake spiders and a skeleton or two, plus some willing adults that can jump out unexpectedly, and a freaky storyteller to lead the way.
When all is said and done for the night, and the sugar wears off, tuck your little monsters into bed and hope that they don’t have any nightmares!
Located directly opposite the Pirate playground on the Mullaloo Foreshore is a new drive-through coffee kiosk, Coffee Time Beaches part of the Mullaoo Beach Hotel. Open 6am - 6pm (may open until 7pm in the Summer) they offer a unique blend Brazillian Coffee, Teas, Babychino's ($1) and freshly baked cakes including chocolate brownies and sticky date cakes.
The drive-through entrance is directly before the Dome Cafe and easily sign posted as you drive through to the ordering hatch. A buzzer goes off as you drive to the ordering hatch and someone will pop their head out and serve you straight to your car. Great for busy parents with toddlers and babies who don't enjoy crossing the busy road to the local Dome Cafe or if the kids are sleeping after a long play on the playground.
You can also order your take away drinks directly from the kiosk on the street where there are a few seating options and some banging tunes to listen to whilst you're waiting for your order. This is a busy road so probably not suitable for parents with toddlers who are prone to bolting off into the sunset ;-)
The Italian Manager, Matteo has told us they will be introducing takeaway food for you to enjoy including freshly made Pizza and Pasta. I can see this becoming quite popular in the Summer evenings when people want to enjoy the playground, grassed area and beach over a bite to eat.
Mullaloo Beach Playground
Mullaloo Beach actually has 2 separate playgrounds, a fabulous beach with Kiosk, a Dome Cafe and full service restaurant. Mullaloo Beach Foreshore is a great location for family/group BBQ's and picnics as there's lots of open space for ball games and plenty of natural shade.
- Shower blocks
- Good parking (although can get crowded on busy days)
- Lots of shaded picnic shelters
- Lots of BBQ's
- 2 playgrounds 1 x sand based, 1 x soft fall
- 1 playground has shade sails
- Basketball hoop
- 2 swings (1 x baby, 1 x toddler)
- Coffee & Cake - across the road at the Dome Cafe and Drive through Coffee Kiosk
- Restaurant - across the road at the Mullaloo Beach Hotel
- Kiosk - on the beach selling chips, ice cream and drinks
This is the playground nearest the larger car park, shower and
toilet block and further away from the Dome Cafe and Mullaloo
Life Saving Club.
This playground is set on a soft fall surface, has shade sails and is suitable for walkers/toddlers.
The playframe is a mixture of ramps, steps, climbing area and slides. There aren't too many open areas for a toddler to fall so I'm happy for my 2 year old to potter around without me holding her hand.
There are 2 rockers and some counting balls also in this shaded area.
There are 2 swings, a baby and a toddler/child swing. This area isn't shaded and is set on a soft fall surface. This area is quite close to the BBQ's, Basketball Hoop and plenty of shaded trees and picnic shelters.
The second playground at Mullaloo Beach Foreshore is closest to the Mullaloo Life Saving Club, Kiosk, Dome Cafe and Mullaloo Beach Hotel. The playground is sand based and consists of 2 wooded playstructures in the shape of a boat and a ship.
This playground opened in January 2013 and at the time of our visit didn't have any shade sails but does have some tree shade at different times of the day.
The larger "ship" is more suited to 3yrs + There are 3 ways to get onto the sloping platform via a climbing ramp which is quite steep, wooded ladder or to pull yourself up onto it.
Near to the larger ship is a "dish" swing.
The smaller "boat" playframe is more suited to older kids as you have to climb into the boat via a wooded ladder and there's a quite a big drop into the boat.
No playground is complete without a rocker. Check out this wooden lobster, so cute!
Overlooking these nautical delights are two picnic tables and a large shelter.
There are also a few more picnic shelters and BBQ's behind this shelter and throughout this side of the playground.
Directly opposite the playground is a new drive-through coffee kiosk part of the Mullaloo Beach Hotel where you can order from the kiosk on the road side or go through the drive through entrace and order from the hatch.
Geraldton is a great holiday destination for families with kids of all ages, and it's also a great stop off point to grab a quick bite to eat and a leg stretch if you're travelling further up North.
The Town Foreshore super playground is located directly outside the Geraldton Yacht Club overlooking Geraldton bay and is more suited to kids aged 4+.
The main attraction is the Sky Walk, a huge roped bridge structure with connecting turrets and a long red slide that is 6 metres at it's highest point. Plenty of climbing is involved to get up to the rope bridge which my 5 year old managed quite easily.
Alongside the rope bridge are two birds nest swings, great for toddlers to lay down on or groups of kids standing around the edge. These are also swings for less able bodied kids and adults.
Two other interesting and relatively new pieces of play equipment to our parks are the NEOS games. The games involves you listening to the voice instructions and watching the lights on various posts and pressing the right buttons in a specific order. A bit like "Simon Says". These are great fun to watch the kids running from one post to the next and several kids can play at once.
My kids had great fun on the liberty Variety Roundabout, suitable for wheelchairs and able bodied kids to ride together. The rock climbing boulder is another new piece of equipment I've not seen before.
A table tennis table and table soccer are another two excellent features to this park. Not sure where you get the bats from for the table tennis though? For older kids there's also a basketball court.
There's plenty of seating options around the playground but little shade, however you can cop a squat a little further away on the grassed area where there are some trees for shade. We saw lots of families having a picnic around this area as there are water fountains and a big toilet block right next to the playground. The toilet facilities include an adult change-table and a hoist.
Stuck for inspiration for easy Halloween food ideas? There are so many great ideas out there that I had to share what I found with you. If you are really time pressed check out the fruit ideas. Some are as simple as drawing a 'Jacko Lantern' face on an orange. Now the hardest part is what to choose to make!

Kalahari A Taste of Africa is a unique café that celebrates South African culture with a delicious menu of traditional food as well as truly good coffee, in a relaxing friendly atmosphere.
This café is like an oasis for homesick South African migrants! Its eclectic mix of traditional farmhouse tables and chairs and African memorabilia tugs at the heartstrings. Comfy sofas invite you to sink into them and soak up the vibe. There is so much to look at from old newspaper clippings covering the walls, to classic tins, bespoke framed artworks and an abundance of quirky South African décor touches. Some items are even available for sale.
The other half of the Kalahari venue is a shop selling South African food products, as well as a Biltong Bar (traditional dried meat) and fridges of fresh food such as boerewors (farm sausage), steak meat, milk tarts and koeksisters (donuts).
The cosy café menu boasts delicious traditional Vetkoek – South African fried bread that is crusty on the outside and soft on the inside and is served with your choice of savoury or sweet fillings.
