Perth Zoo – rehydrate at a water refill station
Just minutes from the heart of the city, Perth Zoo provides a beautiful natural haven.
The animal collection is diverse, comprising more than 170 species and 1,300 animals. Living in exhibits that are as naturalistic as possible allows the animals to interact with visitors and each other on their own terms and promotes the animals’ physical, psychological and social well-being. The gardens are also an integral part of the Perth Zoo experience with many significant plantings including trees over 100 years old. The grounds include an impressive collection of local flora including Western Australian wild flower displays in spring (from September through October), as well as a Rainforest Retreat containing more than 5,000 plants and one of the finest collections of palms in southern Australia.
When visiting Perth Zoo, be sure to pack a water bottle and refill at one of our water refill stations.

Water Corporation Wetlands at Naturescape Kings Park
Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park is a place for children to connect with nature and learn to appreciate the unique Western Australian environment. It is a place to explore, climb rocks and ropes, wade through creeks, build cubbies and get dirty. There are many great reasons to visit and things to do but please note that it is not a playground or picnic area. It has been designed to retain as much of its natural bush setting as possible.
For more information, visit the Naturescape Kings Park website.
Waterlandia – a world of discovery at Scitech
Looking for something fresh and fun to do with the kids over the holidays? Then why not check out Waterlandia, the exciting new interactive exhibit at Scitech.
In collaboration with Scitech, we've brought fresh water thinking to life in this virtual world which allows users to interact with the water cycle in an engaging and playful way. Children can develop skills in problem solving, exploration and experimentation by interacting with the huge touch screen wall, directing water to wherever their imagination and curiosity may take them. Adults will enjoy the experience too and may even learn something from their children.
