Enjoy a resort style holiday without leaving Perth at Karrinyup Waters Resort, Gwelup (just 12kms north of Perth only minutes off the Mitchell Freeway.Whether you are interested in a beautiful poolside cabin to get away from it all for the week or a weekend of “luxury” camping with the kids – Karrinyup Waters Resort has it all.
For the kids there is a playground, pool (well three pools actually) and jumping pillow. Bikes are also allowed on the premises so they will enjoy riding around the resort too.
The pool area has a large pool with lap lanes separated by a shallow cross over (which the kids will love jumping off) into the casual swim area of the pool. The casual swim mpool has little water sprays at it’s beach style entry which is perfect for babies and crawlers to splash around.
There is a second lagoon type pool, and a smaller shallower pool. The area around the pool has lots of lounges and umbrellas so you can enjoy the sun in the warmer months.
The playground is everything they need with a couple of slides, swings and a little rail flying fox. It’s right along the back of Lake Karrinyup so there are lots of ducks and swans here too. The kids will love playing here in the evening while you cook the BBQ in the Camp Kitchen right alongside the playground.
The jumping pillow has to be one the most unique features of this resort – I'm pretty sure you wont find one of these anywhere else in the heart of Perth – they are hours of fun and located right across from the camp ground.
Depending on the type of getaway or stay you are after there is accommodation to suit your needs. If you have lots of relatives coming to town and you can’t accommodate them all at your home this is a great, affordable place for them to stay.
There are a variety of self contained cabins – including the newest edition, the poolside cabins. Cabins start from $120 per night for two people for a motel standard off peak - prices subject to change and there is a full list of accommodation and features on the website (details below)
If you have a caravan or camper trailer you can bring it along – there are powered and unpowered caravan sites available. Or if you are looking to keep it simple and you just want to pitch your tent there are powered and unpowered camping sites. Unpowered sites start from $35 per night for an unpowered site for 2 people (see website for full details below). The jumping pillow is just across the road from here.
There is also a fully covered camp kitchen area near the camping ground. Here you will find serveral barbeques and seating. It’s beautifully located over looking the lake and the playground is just to the left of the kitchen - so the kids can play while you cook.
Lastly bikes are permitted on the premises as long as speed limits are abided by, so bring the family bikes or scooters they will love the freedom of riding around the resort.
The only warning is that there are several bodies of open water – which we assume is the back of Lake Karrinyup – these do add to the natural serenity at Karrinyup Waters Resort and they are beaming with wildlife, but you will need to closely supervise your children at all times – or perhaps book the poolside cabin if you have younger children this is well away from the lakes area and the pool of course is fully fenced.
Karrinyup Waters Resort is well located, close to Gwelup Shopping Centre, which has a Super IGA and also not far from Karrinyup Shopping Centre. It's also only a short drive to the beach or the city. You can access the freeway in minutes (from Karrinyup Rd) – so it’s a great place to stay for the night, weekend or longer either for you and your family or for visitors to Perth.
It's the perfect place for visitors to Perth to stay or for an inner city getaway. We can’t wait to do a bit of “camping” at Karrinyup Waters Resort… lucky for us it’s only 5 mins drive from home!
