Cafe Myriade - Perth's Only Board Game Cafe Northbridge

This month I enjoyed some one on one time with my oldest boy at Cafe Myriade Northbridge. He is game mad so I knew he would love to check it out.

At Cafe Myriade you can enjoy yummy coffee, tea, desserts & pastries and your favourite board game (or a new game) at the same time. So it's time to put those iphones and game consoles away, this is good old quality family time at its best. For more info read our review

Dinosaur Spotted at Hillarys Boat Harbout

The weather's heating up and Hillarys Boat Harbour is a great place to spend the day cooling off in the safe swimming area, and there are lots of great cafes and ice-creameries to enjoy something to eat or drink to have a break from the sun. Now dinosaur fans can also see a roaring, moving T-Rex too. Read more ...

See a Mermaid

Perth beach goers have reported sightings of a beautiful mermaid named Amelia. She swims in the ocean then comes to shore (only for one hour - as she can only breath air for one hour of course!) hands out magic shells then swims away again back to her undersea castle. If you want to try and see Mermaid Amelia you must follow her on facebook and keep checking the Kids Around Perth facebook page for updates! Mermaid Amelia On Facebook

Free & Cheap School Holiday Ideas

Getting the kids out of the house each day can be expensive - but it doesn't have to be. There are lots of free and cheap things to do in Perth. Here are some tips to keep the costs down this school holidays.

* Have lots of pre-packaged snacks, or buy small snack bags and make snack packs to take with you to save buying expensive snacks on the go
