Here’s five things all kids, big and small, are guaranteed to enjoy while on holiday in Busselton.
Alright, you’ve checked in, found your campsite or chalet and have unpacked.
The kids have been for a swim and slipped down the giant water slide, ran around crazy with excitement and bounced out all their energy on the giant bouncing pillow … now it’s time to explore the region.
Here’s five things all kids, big and small, are guaranteed to enjoy!!!
Grab the bikes and scooters and head off on the many paths that run along the beach. There’s not many hills in Busselton making the ride easy for young and old. Most paths follow the shoreline along the picturesque Geographe Bay. Perfect for small kids as the path is mostly away from busy roads. Fantastic for older kids to race the parents and grandies!!!
Check out the Be Active Brochure to find the best paths.
Reminisce and talk about days gone by while munching on popcorn and enjoying a night under the stars at the Busselton Outdoor Drive-in.
New release movies are shown during the week and on weekends. Remember to take the blanket, pillows and hot chocolate!
Visit the Busselton Drive in website for the movies on show, prices and start times.
Check out our Busselton Outdoor Drive-in page for more information.
With something for everyone Wonky Windmill Farm allows the kids to become farm kids for the day. Bottle feed the lambs, hold the rabbits and guinea pigs. Feed the ponies, pig, llama, alpaca, deer, goats, emus and ostrich, and pat and kangaroos! Afterwards relax with a homemade scone, a pot of tea or coffee and a light lunch.
Check out our Wonky Windmill Farm page for more information.
