Wild about Dinosaurs event by Wild about Nature

By Buggybuddys

Wild about Dinosaurs! - Wendy Turland 

If your little one has a healthy obsession with dinosaurs as mine does then watch out for the next Wild about Dinosaurs event by Wild about Nature it is one not to be missed! Held in the enchanting Baldivis children's forest, this event is one worth travelling to and with spring on its way you can make a day of it!

As you had towards the meeting point you are greeted by a friendly T-Rex (luckily he is firmly behind bars!) along with some funky dinosaur themed music. Whilst waiting for everyone to arrive, there are plenty of dinosaur activities to explore. There is dinosaur sensory touch and feel table, play doh, chunky chalk to draw with, and posters of dinosaurs to find. There is so much to look at on arrival you may forget that the main event is yet to come! 

After a warm welcome from Wild about Nature's Emma and Lisa, there is a run down of the mornings activities before each group headed off into the forest on a Dinasaur adventure. Armed with our scavenger bag, check list and pen we were off. On the guided walk we had to find seven different dinosaurs hidden deep in the forest. This was the cause of much excitement as each dinosaur was spotted along the walk!

We also had to collect a selection of natural materials during the walk in order to make a dinosaur mask at the end of the session. But there was much to do before we got back to the picnic area for craft and morning tea!

Once we had found all the dinosaurs, there was a trail of colourful mini dinosaurs that let us to the dinosaur pit...here the children had the opportunity to dig for real bones.  

There were plenty of gloves, shovels, racks and spades to use, but most children just got in there with their hands digging up the bones! Each child also found a dinosaur shaped crayon during the dig which led on well to the next activity.

Heading back to the pic-nic area the craft tables where all set up ready for us to get creative and make our very own dinosaur masks made from the forest! All materials are provided and whilst your little one is occupied, you can help your self to a well deserved hot coffee and biscuits. 



Once everyone has finished the children are then encouraged to wear the masks for the final dinosaur stomp to music, getting all the children and parents on the floor walking like a dinosaur, just brilliant!

Wild about Nature have really thought of everything a child could possible want on a dinosaur adventure and it is so well organised that the morning runs seamlessly, which is not an easy task with excited toddlers!

At $10 this is one of the best mornings we have had out. The sessions book up quickly, so I would recommend you book in advance. They also hold sessions for small groups and do children's parties. This event was for 2-4 years olds however, there are plenty of other sessions running for older children and they have a great school holiday program!

There are toilets and baby change facilities by the picnic area (which is covered), fresh water, bins and there are also lots of shady morning tea spots in the forest. There is plenty of parking for the event at the top of the entrance area as you drive in. Tea and coffee are provided but bring morning tea for your child and clothes that they can explore and get muddy in.

A day out at the AWESOME Festival!

By Buggybuddys

The 2016 AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things returns to the Perth Cultural Centre to inspire and delight Perth children aged 0 – 12 and their families this October School Holidays. The AWESOME Festival presents a spectacular array of theatre, dance, early childhood activities, music, film and hands-on activities in the Perth Cultural Centre.

We've put together a guide how how you can get the most out of your day at the festival for kids of all ages! 

Option 1: Ages 2 to 4

Best dates to come: Monday 3 October, Wednesday 5 October and Friday 7 October.

Start your day when the festival opens at 10am with a wonderful shadow puppetry show all the way from New Zealand - Guji Guji, for ages 2+.

Based on a beautiful Chinese story by Chih Yuan Chen, Guji Guji is a simple and beautiful tale about embracing individuality and belonging for younger audiences. One day, a strange egg rolls into a duck’s nest. Mother Duck cares for the egg from which the strangest looking duckling you’ve ever seen hatches. This odd little ‘duckling’ named Guji Guji is very different from his family, but through his captivating journey, told with brightly coloured shadow puppets, he overcomes adversity and learns it’s okay to be unique.

At 11am why not take a break for lunch and sit around the Wetlands Stage and listen to smooth tunes from The Smooth Sound Band & The Young Voice on Air, a band of talented young musicians. Your little one will be grooving at this free concert while you sit back and relax.

It’s time to get hands on! After the lunch time concert, visit Better Beginnings Books to Go (ages 2 to 5) and create your very own book to take home, for FREE! You can even publish your work for others to enjoy, adding to the growing library of books made by families from all over Australia.

Once your bright young thing has become a published author, head across to Imagination Playground  in the Urban Orchard to burn off that excess energy! This is a free activity, and a Festival favourite!

Before you head home for the afternoon, wander through the Charter for Children’s Rights to Arts and Culture – a beautiful exhibition in the middle of the Perth Cultural Centre. 

Total cost: $15.50 per ticket for Guji Guji, all other activities listed free.

 

Option 2: Ages 4 to 7

Best dates to come: Wednesday 5 October to Monday 10 October

Start your day when the festival opens at 10am with Sunny Ray and Magnificent Moon, an energetic and bright performance, full of music and dancing for ages 4+.

Imagine what it’s like to stay up all night! One night Sunny Ray breaks all the rules and instead of going to sleep, stays up very, very late to party with the Magnificent Moon.
From the imaginations of Clare Bartholomew and Dan Tobias, Sunny Ray and the Magnificent Moon features original music inspired by everything from folk to funk, disco and pop and will delight audiences aged four years and over.

After your show, have a wander through the Perth Cultural Centre and maybe even pick up one of the phone handsets that are sitting around… you never know who will be on the other end in this fantastic free installation, Number Please.

After your unique phonecall, stop by one of the Info*Matic information booths, where the information you want, may not be the information you get, but whatever happens will be remarkable! All the way from Belgium, this free activity will have you giggling at the absurdity of it all! 

Why not take a break for lunch and sit on the lawn in the Urban Orchard, watching the Festival goers walk by?

Once you’ve finished your lunch, head across to Imagination Playground to burn off that excess energy! This is a free activity, and a Festival favourite!

Total cost: $15.50 per ticket for Sunny Ray and Magnificent Moon, all other activities listed free.

 

Option 3: Ages 7 and up

Best dates to come: Monday 3 October and Tuesday 4 October

Head over to the Festival for a morning workshop, turning your fingers into Monster Fingers with Filmbites Youth Film School at 11.15am. Once you’re done, take a quick break for a bite to eat (maybe an AWESOME kids offer from Livingstones Urban Jungle!) before dashing off to see legendary Australian comedian Frank Woodley in his first show for children, Noodlenut at 1pm!

Whether he’s singing songs about sneezing, performing chaotic magic or impersonating animals playing sport, the physical comedy master will have young audiences splitting their sides with laughter.

For something a little quieter, head to the State Library of Western Australia to check out A Sausage Went for a Walk One Day… 40 Years of Fremantle Press Picture Books. This stunning exhibition showcases beautiful artworks and illustrations from some of your favourite childhood stories. How many do you recognise? 

Finally, finish your day with a trip to the Info*Matics, where the information you want, may not be the information you get, but whatever happens will be remarkable! All the way from Belgium, this free activity will have you giggling at the absurdity of it all! 

Total cost: $20.50 per ticket for Noodlenut, $20.50 per ticket for Monster Fingers, all other activities listed are free.

Yallingup Maze, Margaret River

By Buggybuddys

 Review By Amanda Carlin  

The Yallingup Maze, found on Caves Road, is a fun filled family attraction – rain, hail or shine!  

At Yallingup Maze you’ll find something for everyone – toddlers, children, teenagers and adults. Visitors are welcome to come by for a coffee at the cafe and use the free activities - a playground, nature play area and more. There is an entry fee payable to enter the huge wooden maze. Once you have paid, you can enter as many times as you like. 

The wooden maze is massive, with hidden doors, towers, stairs and bridges. The challenge is to reach all four numbered towers, which is difficult enough – try reaching the towers in number order! The wooden pathways all look the same and it’s easy to get very lost. There are also tasks to complete, like find painted murals hidden in the maze. 

 

It certainly is a puzzling maze. We all got lost plenty of times and we went round and round in circles too. If you visit in summer I would recommend you take a hat, sunscreen and water with you – you may be in there some time!    

If you visit on a rainy day, you can still enjoy the café, which serves Yahava coffee, soft drinks and is also licenced with local wines and craft beers. On their menu there’s a mix of both healthy and treat food which is locally made. Each table has some mind boggling puzzles to keep the kids and adults entertained and there are lots of board games too!  

The café is air conditioned, there are high chairs and change table facilitiesOutside there is more seating next to the playground, sandpit and bouncy castle (bounce by gold coin charity donation). There’s also more games, like giant jenga 

Wander down the steps to the “old bendy tree” and you’ll find more puzzles, mini mazes and nature play.


There’s lots of nature play with some fun tree stump stepping stones and the big kids will love to climb on the massive sideways growing tree.

The kids can run free around the huge areaa lot of which is shaded and make bush cubby houses out of sticks and leaves.  

Yallingup Maze is a fun way to spend a couple of hours in the Margaret River region. The kids will absolutely have a ball, and you may even loose them in the Maze for a bit (like I did - whoops!). And if you think you’ve “been there, done that”, think again! The tricky people at Yallingup Maze often reconfigure the layout, so if you think you’ve cracked it – you’re wrong!  

Maze Admission

$12.50pp Students

Kalamunda History Village, Kalamunda

By Buggybuddys

Review by Amanda Carlin 

Take a trip back 100 years in time at Kalamunda History Village, in the Perth Hills. I took my seven year old “Little Chef”, along with his grandparents, to the open air museum which is located right in the centre of Kalamunda town. It is the largest museum of its kind in Western Australia and gives you a unique taste of what hills life was like a century ago. 

We paid a very reasonable admission fee at the Zig Zag Cultural and Tourist Information Centre next door. For the four of us it only cost $20. At the History Village you can explore a number of original buildings, vehicles and machines from a time before no TVs, no smart phones, no computers and NO running water! Life was definitely a lot harder back then. 

Many of the original buildings were relocated to this site of the former Upper Darling Range Railway Station from the Kalamunda area in the 1970sThere’s so much to look at - Little Chef didn’t know where to start! The Train Station (1903-1927) was built to service the Zig Zag line 

Siting proudly at the platform is a Locomotive G118. This steam train was the type used on the Kalamunda line, transporting timber from Canning Mills to the Midland Junction, via the Zig Zag. Kids can hop aboard and play at being the engine driver!  

At the Kalamunda State School House (1905-1970), children will be fascinated to see how a class room was set up in the last century and they can sit at one of the old wooden desks.


During holidays old fashioned school lessons are held here, in what is a popular school holiday program. Here kids can discover old school yard games like elastics, hopscotch, skipping, hand clapping and all the fun rhymes that go along with them. 

At the school house there is also a room with a collection of artefacts. Little Chef particularly was interested in the toys of the time, including billy carts, a very old monopoly set, wooden toys and more. There’s even a beautiful giant dolls house, decked out with lots of furniture and dolls, which is a favourite with children

McCullagh Cottage (1895) is tiny settler's cottage that you can walk through – it’s like walking through somebody’s house!

It was home to three generations of the McCullagh family, who were early settlers in the area. It’s set up with the furniture and bits and bobs from that era. And it wouldn’t be complete without an outside laundry with a copper and mangle and a dunny with a spider and newspaper loo paper! 

Walking through Chamber's House (1922) you’ll notice it’s a little bit fancier than the cottage. It depicts a typical pre-World War II home. There’s a well equipped kitchen and the posh dining room is set up.

In the Carriage Shed you’ll find pre motor car transportation vehicles including horse drawn carriages and a milk cart. There are also vintage trucks, busses and Little Chef enjoyed sitting in the driver’s seat of a big old red fire truck! 

The village is run by volunteers and we were treated to a demo from an 80 year old fruit grading machine in the Orchard ShedIt was a huge contraption and Little Chef absolutely loved piling in the (fake) fruit, which got taken up the conveyor belt, cleaned and then sorted into size. The shed showcases the development of the orchard industry in the district, which is still very important to this day. 

The first official Kalamunda Post Office (1921-1972) houses displays on postal, telegraph and telephone services.  

You’ll also find the area’s original Post Office (1901-1921) which now serves as the village’s General Store.  There’s also a blacksmiths, timber sawpit and much more to discover 

A visit to the Kalamunda History Village is a fantastic insight for children into a bygone time. For us, it was particularly special as we visited with my parents. Many Grandparents enjoy a trip down memory lane, passing on memories to their grand kids and remembering what it was like before the digital and TV ageKalamunda History Village is well worth a visit!  

Kalamunda History Village is open Mon-Wed & Fri 10am-3pm; Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm. Closed Thursdays. Admission charges are:  

Adults $7 Children $3 Seniors $5

Aravina Estate, Margaret River

By Buggybuddys

Review by Amanda Carlin

Chef and I love nothing more than a delicious meal over a glass of wine when we dine in Margaret River, though we don’t always feel comfortable taking our seven year old “Little Chef along to some of the fancy winery restaurants. So for us, Aravina ticks all the boxes. It is a classy, but laid back winery, with great food and wine, plenty of things to do and see and best of all its family friendly! 

We drive down the sweeping driveway, past the many rows of vines. Aravina has a French provincial style cellar door and is set in gorgeous surroundings, with lush plants and huge lawns for the kids to run about on.  

Aravina’s restaurant is top notch and is a great spot for lunchOnly the highest quality local produce is used, with a lot of it grown onsite. There is a dedicated children’s menu, with three choicesa fish burger, a lamb ragu pasta dish and vegetable spring rolls for the more adventurousThere’s not a lot to pick from, but it will keep most kids happy.  

Little Chef chose the fish burger. He enjoyed the tasty piece of fish, which had been panko crumbed and served in a soft brioche bun. It came with a generous portion of fries and ketchup too. He wasn’t too keen on the bitter “frilly” lettuce, but did enjoy the home made pickles on the burger. It sure is a fancy kid’s burger!  

Adults can expect to enjoy something like this market fresh barramundiGeographe Bay squid, butternut pumpkin and seaweed butter. Chef and I enjoyed two courses from the set menu for $60 each ($70 for three). We both thought the food and wine was excellent and would absolutely dine there again.  

After lunch, we headed to the playground by the dam, which is fenced for the safety of little ones. There’s a few rocky ledges, so it’s best to keep an eye on toddlers. There’s lots of fun and diverse equipment to keep the kids entertained; swings, slides, climbing equipment, a silly mirror and more. The playground has a sand base, there’s some grassy areas too and lots of trees for providing shade.  


You’ll be able to spot a few things from lunch during wander around Aravina’s veggie garden. Little Chef saw just where his fresh frilly lettuce came from!  

Both big and little rev heads will appreciate Aravina’s shiny car collection. In the car gallery there’s an ever changing display of modern and vintage Porsche, Holden, Lamborghinis, Ford, Mercedes, Ferraris to name a few. There’s also a gift shop selling beautiful French inspired homewares.  

Aravina is a must stop winery for families in the Margaret River region. It’s quite easy to spend a few hours here, enjoying great food and exploring the stunning grounds.

Lesmurdie Falls, Forrestfield

By Buggybuddys

Review by Amanda Carlin

Spring is the perfect time to visit Lesmurdie Falls, found on the escarpment of the Perth Hills in Mundy Regional Park. And you don’t need to travel very far. Lesmurdie Falls is just a 30 minute drive east from Perth CBD. 

If we’ve had decent rainfall over winter, then the falls will be flowing and there are also a host of wildflowers on display too. We even spotted a bright blue fairy wren, though I wasn’t quick enough to take a picture! 

From the carpark on Falls Road, it’s an easy stroll along concrete and gravel paths to the stunning 50 meter waterfall and the two main lookout points. It’s fine for younger children and very sure footed toddlers that can walk about 800m. 

The gravel path meanders past Lesmurdie Brook. Grab a stick from the bush and have a stick race with the kids! Soon you come to the first lookout, which is on the point that the brook meets the scarp. On the day that we visited (in September 2016) water was cascading over the edge. It’s also a brilliant view over the suburbs, you can see the city, lots of planes taking off from the airport and on a clear day you can even see Rottnest.  

Head down some gravel steps to the second lookout for a view back up to the waterfall. It really is pretty as a picture! 

There are several other walk trails that begin at Lesmurdie Falls. They are great for a family hike with older children. 

  • The Foot of the Falls Trail is a 2km round trip, which takes around 1 hour. This trail takes you down to the bottom of the falls and back up the hill. 

  • The Valley Loop Trail is a 3km round trip, so allow about 2hrs. This takes you down to the bottom of the falls and back up the other side of the valley. 

There is a large car park, where there are maps, toilet facilities and rubbish bins. 

You can take a picnic along and make use of one of the three large stone picnic tables, which have some shade. Pram access is available to the toilets and picnic tables only. You will need to take your own drinking water as there is none available on site. 

Lesmurdie Falls is a tranquil spot in the Perth Hills, great for a family picnic and bushwalk.

Elmar's in the Valley, Swan Valley

By Buggybuddys Jennie

Elmar’s in the Valley is Perth’s largest German establishment and one of the largest venues in the Swan Valley making it the perfect venue for a social get together.

 

The venue is huge! There is a large indoor restaurant offering an a la carte menu and table service, plus an undercover Beer Garden area offering it’s own menu.  The venue is great for accommodating big groups as it has lots of large tables.

 

The Beer Garden is very family friendly with a huge grassy area to run about on plus the recent addition of a small fenced playground.

The menu offers traditional German staples such as Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, Beef Goulash and Elmar’s Specialty – a slow-cooked and roasted Pickled Pork Shank.

We dined in the Beer Garden area which offers a smaller, more low-key menu than the indoor dining area.  Food has to be ordered at the bar which is good if there is a large group of you as you can all order and pay separately. The bar is cash only but you can set up a tab by handing over your credit card and drivers licence and then you pay in the restaurant on your way out.

 

I selected the Grillbratwurst served with Sauerkraut, Potato Mash and Mustard which was good value at $20.

 

We also sampled the Pork Schnitzel which came accompanied by a choice of Fries or Potato Salad, a garden salad and a creamy mushroom sauce ($34.90).
 

Our vegetarian dining companions ordered the Vegetarian German Pasta off the a la carte menu which they really enjoyed.  The a la carte menu is available in both the inside restaurant and the beer garden. (The beer garden menu is not available in the restaurant).

 

The kids menu ($10.90 - $13.90) includes cocktail Vienna sausages, chicken nuggets, pork schnitzel and a kids nibble plate. It was refreshing to see that the chicken nuggets are house made and all the meals come served with carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes and slices of apple.

 

Food was of good quality and came out fairly quickly considering how busy it was. We enjoyed our lunch at Elmar’s. It’s definitley a great venue to dine with a group of friends.

Elmar’s is open Wednesday and Thursday for lunch only and Friday – Sunday for lunch and dinner.

The Shore Cafe, Alkimos

By Buggybuddys Jennie

The Shore Café in Alkimos is a gorgeous little café located on the foreshore at Shore Haven Beach.

 

It offers both indoor and alfresco dining with stunning views of the ocean.

 

Opening hours are Monday – Thursday 8am – 4pm and Friday – Sunday 8am – 5pm.  During the warmer months they are open later for dinner. 

The menu offers a varied range of yummy sounding food.  A breakfast menu is served until 11.30am. As we only stopped in for coffee (which was very good) we only sampled a couple of the sweet treats on offer.  I opted for the Butterscotch Muffin which was divine! We also selected one of their raw slices.

As well as their menu offering there is a selection of sandwiches and pizzas available to dine in or take away.

 

There is a dedicated kids breakfast and lunch menu with all items priced at $9. I can see the ‘Build your own tacos’ being a very popular lunch option for the kids.  High chairs are available for little ones.

Right outside of the café is a large scramble net which will keep the kids amused while you enjoy a relaxing coffee in the sunshine taking in the ocean views.

The café is positioned next to a large grassy space complete with picnic tables. So you have the option to grab some take away food from the café and enjoy a picnic on the lawn and let the kids run about with a ball.

 

Directly in front of the café is beach access. The beach looked very inviting but there was warning signs relating to the currents and there is no lifeguard patrol. If you enjoy the beach but not the sand there is a grassed area right next to the beach along with 3 built in double sun loungers.

The Shore Café is in a great spot and will be a lovely place to enjoy and meal and watch the sunset during the summer months.

Make your Mark - Art Cafe, Myaree

By Buggybuddys

Make your Mark - Art Cafe, Myaree by Wendy Turland

Looking for something different to do with your little one on a rainy day...and with school holidays coming up Make your mark Art Cafe is a great place to meet up with friends have a coffee and paint your own pottery! They specialise in children's pottery allowing them to create and take home their very own masterpiece! 

It is reasonably priced and a really fun and creative thing to do for every age and if your child is too young to paint the staff will help you put their hand or foot prints on to a piece of pottery.

There is a standard $6 charge for the use of the studio and paints with ceramic items starting at $5.50

We had a great afternoon painting a mug for daddy for Father's day and with over 400 pieces of pottery to choose from you will be sure to find something that will make a personalised gift or keepsake.

First off you can choose your piece of pottery to paint, there are lots and lots of different pieces to choose from. There is pretty much everything and anything you could want to paint including mugs, plates, egg cups to money boxes, vases and wall art. 

Then you can choose the colours that you want to use, there is a helpful wall chart that shows you what the colour will look like once it is fired.

The staff are so hands on and great with the kids, they take you through the process on a one to one basis so you feel really confident about what you are doing. They are really friendly and used to dealing with lots of groups of children painting! 

The tables are all set up well and you have everything you need to complete your piece of pottery. The colours look very different once they are fired and glazed so be sure to colour chart on the wall when you are choosing your paint. All the colours are numbered making it easy to select which ones you want to use. 

The cafe sells snacks and hot and cold drinks so you can spend a good few hours here with your little ones here. They have plenty of highchairs too! 

The firing process can take up to three days during busy periods so be careful to check how long it will take and when you can go back to collect it.

They also hold parties for children as well as adults for up to 16 people which would be a great idea for a special birthday. 

Sessions during school holidays get booked up fast so if you are interested in going during the holidays its best to give them a call and book in advance. There is plenty of parking out the front of the store and they have toilets that are toddler friendly with steps and baby change.

Eden Beach Foreshore Playground, Jindalee

By Buggybuddys Jennie

Eden Beach Foreshore Playground is a brand new awesome playground located by the foreshore in Jindalee. The playground is lovely and colourful and jam packed full of quirkly play structures. 

 

The main feature of the playground is a huge slide that will delight the bigger kids! The only way to get to the top is to climb! Being a metal tube I dread to think how hot that slide is going to get during the warmer months! 

 

There are multi-level play cubes with a fireman's pole. 

 

And various interesting climbing nets.

 

There is a toddler play area with swings, slide and a sand play area.

 

There are a couple of good-sized picnic shelters that would be great for social gathering plus BBQ facilities.

Next to the playground is a massive green open space, perfect for ball games. A local Farmer market will run every Saturday 8am - 12pm on the oval from 2th September where you'll be able to by locally grown fruit and veg, honey, eggs, bread and more. See their Facebook page for more details. 

 

There toilets are located across from the park. A cafe is planned to be built next to the playground over the coming year. 

Eden Beach Foreshore Playground is located at the end of Reflection Blvd, Jindalee.
