Perth is home to Flight Experience, the original flight simulator entertainment that allows anyone to pilot a Boeing 737. Our state-of-the-art simulator features a fully enclosed cockpit, real instruments and systems, HD visuals, audio, and vibration, all of which creates the closest experience you can get to flying a plane without becoming an actual pilot. During the pre-flight briefing, your child will learn about the aircraft controls and procedures, as well as being introduced to the basic concepts of flight. Once inside the cockpit, a licensed pilot will serve as your child's instructor, guiding them through each step to ensure a successful take off, landing, and more.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre - The Arrival
Dolphin Theatre, UWA. 1st - 15th July

Follow Aki as he starts life amidst the extraordinary inhabitants of this new land.
Will he find a place to live? Will he find a job and make friends? Most of all, will Aki ever see his family again?
The absence of words not only makes this story perfect for puppetry but emphasises the isolation experienced by many people arriving in a new place.
The Arrival is a fusion of Tan’s beautiful and surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting. This groundbreaking production blurs the boundaries of performance, digital animation and puppetry. This is an emotionally moving piece that will touch anyone who has bid farewell to a loved one.
