Kids Day Out in the Swan Valley

Paddle Boats, Rapids & Icecream

A Kids Day Out in the Swan Valley features somewhere to eat, somewhere to play and somewhere to enjoy a sweet treat, all within close proximity. We recommend you allocate at least 5 hours to complete your "Kids Day Out in the Swan Valley".

Oakover Grounds 

Stop 1 - Somewhere To Eat and Pedal Boats at Oakover Grounds

So our first stop on today's Kids Day Out in the Swan Valley is Oakover Grounds in Middle Swan.  

If you'd like to go for something to eat it's best to visit Wednesday - Sunday as lunch is served 11.30 - 4pm.  You can also enjoy breakfast Saturdays and Sundays from 9 - 11.30am.

The cafe is open daily from 8am however, so you can enjoy a delicious Fiori coffee or choose from a range of hot & cold drinks, including chocolate milkshakes for the kids.  There is also a small range of slices to choose from in the cafe. If visiting on a Monday or Tuesday we recommend feeding the kids first, and then just ordering them a babycino or milkshake to keep them going.  

And of course the best bit, there are free pedal boats for the kids to enjoy! Kids under 12 must have an adult with them at all times on the boats, so if you are heading there with more than one child under 12 we recommend going with at least 2 adults, so one can watch the children on the shore while the other adult pedals it out on the boat.

Bells Rapids

Stop 2 - A Play at Bells Rapids Brigadoon

Back onto the Great Northern Highway and about 5mins drive up the road is the turn off to our second stop, Bells Rapids.  Then just another 5 minute drive and you are there. Depending on the time of year there may be no water to a lot of water. We visited in April just after a big down pour so there was a gentle flow of water, just enough for the kids to do some rock jumping and have some fun.  

You can walk along the river bank and enjoy a bush walk, this is a great place to let the kids have a run around and enjoy some good old fashioned nature play.  There is a toilet block near the car park but no showers - so towels and spare clothes are a must!

Oggies Ice Creamery

Stop 3 - Oggies IceCreamery for a Sweet Treat

Last visit and the only way to entice them away from Bells Rapids, is our third stop Oggies Ice Creamery. They have a big range of icecreams, including Apple Pie and Mars Bar flavour as well as a range of sorbets.  There is a little playground for the younger ones and plenty of room for kids to run around or sit down and enjoy their icecream.

They are open 7 days per week, 10 -5pm.  You can also get light meals here, a range of other desserts and a big selection of English lollies.
