Family Friendly Fun: Fantastic Kid Friendly Activities In Subiaco
It’s no secret that Subiaco has plenty of great stuff for adults to enjoy - fab bars, great shops, amazing restaurants - but did you know that there is actually a surprising number of kid friendly activities on offer as well?
Next time you’re heading in this way bring the ankle-biters along with you for a fab fun-filled day out. Before you do make sure you check out this great list of our top kid friendly activities in the area.
Grab A Babycino
Subi is renowned for its plethora of fantastic cafes. Stroll up and down Rokeby Road or Hay St, find a cafe that takes your fancy (such as Pychomug, 1982 Espresso or Allora) and grab yourself a coffee and a babycino for the wee ones. We’re yet to meet a child who doesn’t adore milk foam, chocolate powder and marshmallows.
Sit On The Chair Sculpture on Rokeby Road
In addition to being a great piece of public art, this sculpture on Rokeby road also seems very much like a throne if you’re only a few feet tall. Your kids will love climbing up it, sitting on top and watching the world go by on busy Rokeby Road. It also makes for a great photo opportunity, so remember to get a few snaps while you’re there too!
Get Them A Sweet Treat
Ice-cream cones and fairy bread have to rank close to the top of the all-time favourite children's treat list, so what if we told you that there was something available at San Churro that combined the two? That’s right, you can treat your kids to an ice cream in a waffle cone laced with chocolate and hundreds & thousands! Note: this is not limited only to kids and we won’t judge if you indulge your inner child and have one yourself.
Other great places to indulge a sweet tooth include Whisk Creamery for some phenomenally decadent ice cream creations and Pitcher and Iron for their fantastic Belgian waffles.
Frolic In Mueller Park Playground
If you’ve just treated your kids to a sugar hit then they’re probably going to need to run around and burn off some energy. The gorgeous, leafy Mueller Park is the perfect place for this. Complete with pathways for riding bikes and scooters on, two separate fenced off playgrounds and public toilets nearby, it’s the ideal spot for the tikes to blow off some steam while you sit down and relax for a while. There’s also picnic tables there too, so you can even squeeze in a cheap & cheerful lunch while you’re at it!
Get Your Kids On TV In Subiaco Common
Has your child ever wanted to be famous? Well now then can live out their TV star fantasies thanks to the fantastic giant TV shaped public art in the middle of Subiaco Common. Take a seat on the couch opposite and watch the entertainment magic unfold. (Unfortunately this particular TV doesn’t come with a mute button if you were hoping for a bit of peace and quiet.)
Make A Furry Friend At The Cat Cafe
Want all of the benefits of an adorable pet cat without the hassle of owning one? Then the Cat Cafe is definitely for you! Home to a number of furry residents, The Cat Lounge lets you frolic with some friendly felines while enjoying a coffee and a bite to eat. You’ll also be helping out a good cause too as part of the proceeds go towards animal welfare organisations. Numbers are strictly limited though, so make sure you book online to make sure you don’t miss out on being able to hang out with the cats!
Join In The Fun At The Subiaco Street Party
Held around April every year, the Subiaco Street Party is the ideal day out for the whole family - there’s even a dedicated kid’s quarter packed with enough fun activities to keep your little party animals entertained for hours. Previous options have included face painting, hands on craft activities, Old Macdonald’s Farm, carnival rides and circus acts to name just a few! An amazing free community event that celebrates Subiaco’s rich character, heritage and culture, the brilliant carnival atmosphere is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face.
Take Them To A “Little Groovers” Class at The WA Performance School
If your child likes to move and groove then this this is the perfect class to help them learn all the basics in one fun filled, confidence building class. They’ll get some great exercise while they learn, play and engage with music and movement in an environment designed to nurture rhythm, technique and musicality.
