There's no shortage of things to do with the family in Australia's biggest state.
Whether you love the ocean, hiking, wildlife or adventure activities, there is so much to do together in Western Australia.
Here's a list of suggested things to do the whole family will love in WA.
10 ways to entertain the whole family in WA
Spend the day on Cable Beach, Broome
If you’re staying at Discovery Parks - Broome, spending time on Cable Beach is one of the best family-friendly things you can do.
Unlike beaches in the south, like Fremantle or Coogee, Cable Beach is so big that you’ll have loads of space to yourself.
Once you're there, one of the best things to do on Cable Beach as a family is to hop on a camel ride, easily one of the most famous activities in the area. While you can choose the morning or evening, we highly recommend the evening because the sunsets in Broome are unreal.
Get the adrenaline flowing above the trees
If you and the kids love activities that pump your adrenaline, then spending the afternoon at Next Level Monkey Business is one of the best family-friendly things to do in WA.
Only a 15-minute drive from Discovery Parks - Busselton, Next Level Monkey Business is where you can spend your afternoon leaping and flying through their zipline and rope courses.
With something to suit every level, including mini zip lines, a bouldering wall, and a mega course for adults, Next Level Monkey Business is an awesome way to entertain the family.
Swim at Bunbury Jetty
If you’re staying at Discovery Parks - Bunbury Foreshore, one of the best things to do with the kids is to spend the day at the beach.
Located south of Perth, Bunbury is an idyllic seaside town boasting turquoise waters that lap against the coast.
Just outside the town centre are shallow baths perfect for small children, while the shores surrounding the Bunbury Jetty are a great place to spend the day. Kids can build sandcastles on the beach, swim in the shallow blue ocean and maybe even watch dolphins as they frolic close to shore.
Find your way out of Yallingup Maze
Does your family love solving puzzles?
If so, Yallingup Maze is one of the best family-friendly things to do in Wester Australia.
Located 35-minutes from Discovery Parks - Busselton, Yallingup Maze is a timber maze with five towers, four interlinking bridges, five sets of stairs, and 1.6km of winding passageways. Is your family up to the challenge?

Get away from it all on Lake Argyle

Explore world-class reefs
Although Discovery Park - Port Hedland is over four hours away, it’s worth the journey to experience the fantastic Exmouth Gulf.
Home to Exmouth, Ningaloo and Coral Bays, exploring this part of the state is what family memories are made of.
Take the kids on a day trip to snorkel any of these stunning locations and there's a good chance you'll encounter dolphins, stingrays, turtles, and maybe even a whale.
Meet a Quokka on Rotnest Island
With so much to see and do, spending a weekend at Discovery - Rottnest Island is still one of the most family-friendly things to do in the state.

Watch the sunset on Coogee Beach
If there’s one thing Western Australia does well, it’s beaches, and Coogee Beach is no exception.
If you’re looking for one of the more relaxing, family-friendly things to do in WA, spending time at Coogee Beach is one of the best.
Just minutes from Discovery Parks - Coogee Beach the white sand and crystal clear water are a child's delight. Even better, the sunsets at Coogee are epic, so don’t head back to the park until you’ve seen the sky change colour.
Talk to the animals at Caversham Park
