After looking for somewhere to celebrate a friends birthday with young kids in tow and finding next to no information after doing a google search, it was surprising to find very little information about what facilities venues had for children. That was back in June 2011, and after a bit of reseach and work Kids Around Perth was born in August 2011 and has been growing strong every since.
Not long after starting Kids Around Perth it was evident we were going to need some help, as even this girl who had lived in Perth all her life didn't realise how much there was to see and do with kids in Perth & WA. So here we introduce to you Team Kids Around Perth
