Things to do for families and children

Programs, events and activities for families and children to enjoy in Kwinana.

Events

To engage with our growing population of young families, the City of Kwinana continuously runs programs, events and activities to help develop and entertain young minds.

The City’s main events are aimed at families and children, including our popular Rock Symphony, Children’s Festival and Christmas Lolly Run.

For more information on the City’s upcoming programs, events and activities, follow the City of Kwinana on Facebook or see the below upcoming events. Community members can also sign up to our email list for fortnightly updates.

Facilities and Programs

The City’s community centres and facilities run programs throughout the year with many aimed at young children and their families. From movie nights to toddler play, arts and crafts to gaming sessions and even homework clubs, there really is something for kids of all ages.

While our programs run parallel to school terms, we do also offer a range of actitivies throughout the school holidays to keep toddlers through to teens occupied. 

The award-winning Kwinana Adventure Park remains a firm favourite with locals and the wider community. Based at Calista Oval, this groundbreaking design is inclusive and fully accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

Adjoining the Kwinana Adventure Park is the Edge Skatepark - one of Western Australia’s biggest skating facilities. The 1800m2 skatepark features a competition-level bowl, street section, beginner's area, parkour obstacles and a basketball half-court.

Family Services

The City of Kwinana sponsors the award-winning Bright Futures Children’s Services, which supports family day care and in-home child care for young children in Kwinana. The service also facilitates Moorditj Kulungar – a playgroup for local Aboriginal families to access.

Located on the upper floor of the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre facility is a range of not-for-profit groups and agencies providing tailored services including employment counselling, early childhood development, education and skills building family and relationship counselling and financial counselling.

A child health service is also available from the William Bertram Community Centre.
