Visit the History House Museum to see what life was like 100 years ago. The Armadale Reptile Centre (see above) is in nearby Wungog. Learn all about the area’s reptiles. Another must see is Araluen Botanic Park in the Perth Hills. It has been a popular destination for Perth families for decades. The gardens are spectacular and extremely kid-friendly activities are regularly set up for the school holidays. Most parts of the park are accessible to prams and strollers and there are free barbeque facilities as well as places to purchase food and drink. Be sure to visit Champion Lakes for all your watersports. You can also swim here, canoe, laze upon a white sandy beach, have a picnic or barbecue.
