As a Mum I love school holidays. Especially for the first couple of days. No rushing around in the morning, no lunchboxes to pack, it is bliss. I imagine these September School Holidays will be the same.
Then day three hits and all of a sudden everything is boring. You start counting down the days for school routine to come back (I know parents that this isn’t just me!) and you decide, right, I am ready to schedule something to get some energy out, or maybe some quiet time away from the computers, or maybe you love taking a drive to experience a whole new part of Perth!
We have you covered for all of the above plus more – why not head out of the norm and try something from another side of town? You may be surprised at what you’ll find!
Latitude Perth (NORTH)
If you’ve dreamt of scaling walls, mastering your ninja skills, flying high, and perfecting a flip, then Latitude is the place for you! Choose from various floor activities including trampolines, dodgeball, basketball, climbing walls, Sky-High obstacle course and The Grid ninja-parkour course that’ll turn you into an aerial pro in no time.
These school holidays, Latitude is offering 2 hours for $26 from 3pm. Available daily throughout the holiday period, you’ll get double time across the floor to put your skills, nerve, and strength to the test.
For adults who’d rather watch from the sidelines, Latitude offers a large mezzanine viewing deck to stay involved and have their very own Basecamp Café with barista made coffee for kids and parents to refuel and relax.
Perfect for families, mates, groups and all in between, Latitude has got you covered for a school holiday adventure like no other.
Pro tip: school holidays are busy so book online before visiting to avoid disappointment.

On Our Beach – Spare Parts Puppet Theatre (SOUTH)
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” John Lennon

It is your chance to ride a surf board, be part of sculptures by the sea, play a game of beach volleyball and swim in a sea of shimmering balls.
The show is not seated, so be prepared to enjoy, participate if you want to and be transported to an imaginary beach where strangers become friends.
