Welcome to Little Monsters Play Centre, the first play centre in Margaret River. We opened our doors on the 27th February 2016 and have been welcoming kids from Augusta to Bunbury to come and exhaust themselves on our equipment, while their parents enjoy a coffee and snack.
We came up with the idea to open the centre in September 2015 when we decided it was the perfect time to start working for ourselves. We wanted to start a business that hadn’t been done yet in the region. And as we all know, Margaret River is known for its wet and chilly winters. There aren’t a lot of options for kids down here when it’s raining outside. Sometimes in summer it can be too hot to play outside all day, so the air-conditioned café is a lovely escape from the heat.
We had been to a few play centres when we lived in Perth, so we knew how popular they were and how convenient it was to have a party at one. We wanted our centre to be different to the bigger ones in the city. We were hoping to give parents a more personal experience when they came to visit. We are lucky to be involved with such an amazing little community that has fabulous local produce and we wanted to make the most of that too.
