WINERIES THE KIDS WILL LOVE
It can be difficult to enjoy the many wineries in the area when the kids are complaining
about how bored they are, so here’s a list of wineries where the little ones will have a good time.
Dunsborough & Yallingup insider
Amberley has beautiful gardens and lawns, while you’ll find that Bush Shack Brewery has a great playground,
featuring swings, buckets and spades and a lawn area. Driftwood not only boasts a playground, but also some
exciting old ruins for the kids to play around and explore. Flametree has lawns to run around on, but also
provides boxes of toys to empty out on the grass, and at Happs the toys are available on tables inside (plus
there’s a small play area outside in the front. Lamonts has a lawn for racing about on, as well as pencils and
paper for less energetic play. Likewise, Wise has crayons, pencils and lawns, and The Growers has gardens to
explore, toys and pencils for budding artists.
Looking for something a little bit different on
your travels? We suggest going underground...
The Ngilgi Cave Ancient Riverbed Tour is great for
kids – they get the hard hats on and crawl on
their bellies, dodging stalactites and stalagmites
as they learn a little about Australia’s natural
history in the making. An experienced guide
takes you down 45m below the earth’s surface
over a two-hour tour period – it’s perfect for kids
over 10 and costs $42 for adults, $21 for children,
$106 for families. If you’re looking for an
adults-only caving experience, however, there’s
The Ultimate Ngilgi Adventure (which takes two
hours for $135 per person) and the Crystal Crawl
Tour (three hours, $95 per person). Don’t bother
with these if you’re claustrophobic – but if you do
want to do something like this, there are easier
options for both. Just ask the guide and they can
judge your ability and work something out, so
you don’t miss out on the adventure.
Kids will enjoy playing on the
lawn at Amberley or (below)
the playground at Happs.
