Unleash Your Inner Child at Perth’s Top 5 Kidult Havens

You might be a fully matured adult now (with a job and taxes and health cover), but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy yourself. In fact, we think that it’s very important that you still take some time out to just have fun and to help you on your journey, here are a few ways to rediscover your inner child!

The Maze


The Maze is the perfect place to begin, boasting 32 acres of wildlife, mini golf, gas barbeques and, of course, the largest timber maze in Perth. Solve the puzzles, pet the koalas, melt at the sight of the baby emus and kangaroos, and kick back with a drink and a snack at the breezy Cafe Iguana. Then get right back out there again, because there’s still giant chess, the colourful aviary and much more!

The Bead Company

Osborne Park

Have you ever considered making your own jewellery?

These friendly beading workshops can teach you knotting, wire wrapping, crystal embellishing and more, and have you putting together your own earrings, necklaces, bag tags and bracelets in no time at all.

Game City


Tucked away quite literally underground, Game City is a glorious celebration of all things video games. Rare arcade machines line the walls, and every console from the NES to the PS4 is ready and waiting to be fired up. The food is proper kid yummies (it’s all stacked burgers, fat chips and colourful cupcakes), and there are also LAN parties, anime screenings and board game events to check out.
