School Holiday Activities: Fairies in the Park!

Saturday 8th October 11am-1pm
Araluen Botanic Park

We can’t believe it’s the school holidays already! If you’re looking for school holiday activities to do with kids in Perth – look no further! Starting on Saturday 24th September and ending on Sunday 9th October, get ready for two weeks of fun in the Perth Hills. 

On Saturday October 8th, from 11am-1pm Freedom Fairies will have games, bubbles, story time, and a craft station!

Our vintage train will be operating, and we’ll be running a colouring in competition from the train station. Plenty of prizes are to be won, generously donated by Yates Australia. Train tickets are $5 per seat and can purchased on the day from the train station marquee on the Concourse.   

As always, our augmented reality filters are still around and a great way to see the Park in a new light! Scan the QR code on one of our AR signs around the park and enter a digital world of bees, fairies, and frogs! Or if you’re looking to escape screens for the day our scavenger hunt packs will be available from the gatehouse on entry. 

We can’t wait to see you these school holidays! Come out to Araluen and get the kids out of the house for a day in the Perth Hills. Tickets can be purchased online (once available) or at the gate on entry.
