[:en]The kids in Western Australia will be running wild from 26 September – 11 October for the Spring School Holidays. The weather is perfection and it is the best time to explore the wonderful Coral Coast! If you’re scratching your head for things to do these holidays, we have a pretty good list of Perth school holiday ideas.
A staycation in WA is affordable and a good adventure to get to know your own backyard. Or come for a Perth day trip, Cervantes is a great and easy 2-hour scenic drive from Perth.
An easy and very scenic road trip North of Perth is always a fun time with the family. Spend the Perth and WA School Holidays camping in national parks, wake up to waves crashing on the beach or stay in the RAC Caravan park next door.
Cervantes is well known for the wonderful Pinnacles Desert in the Namburg National Park. Call in with the gang to the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre. Visit the impressive Lake Thetis, one of only five thrombolites (living fossil) sites in Western Australia.
Cervantes boasts beautiful beaches for fishing, swimming, and fresh seafood. Learn more about the region’s multi-million dollar lobster industry, and the Western Rock Lobster industry by visiting us and enjoying some of the freshest seafood for lunch!
Now that you have some time off with the kids, we’ll see you at Lobster Shack, right? 😉
A scenic drive to Cervantes is a great idea to show off what the Northern corridor of WA has to offer. We always love a good road trip, especially with the family. WA is so unique, embrace it! The Pinnacles is a landmark like no other. Everyone has to stop here for a selfie.
After arriving in Cervantes, come and see us at Lobster Shack! Treat yourself to the freshest seafood with a Lobster lunch. We know we have the best kids’ menu in Cervantes too, complete with ice cream and a souvenir store. No one can resist a good ice cream… Sorry, but the kids probably won’t share it with you!
Lobster lunch is always followed by fun and games on the Lobster Shack Playground or beach area. Parents can enjoy watching safely from the newly revamped beachside deck (aka beer garden) with steps straight onto one of the most beautiful beaches in Western Australia. If you loved your meal, don’t forget you can take home some fresh seafood too!
Lobster Shack Tours
Have you ever been up close with a Western Rock Lobster? Well, at Lobster Shack you can take a self-guided tour around our lobster factory and see our lobsters in person! If you’re lucky, sometimes you can get a touch of them too. It’s not only a fun experience but an educational one too. Along the Lobster Factory Tour, you’ll learn all about the WA Rock Lobster and how unique these creatures really are. The kids will love the hands-on experience (and more selfies). For the more adventurous there are loads of other on-water tours such as our pot-pulling, where you can catch your own crayfish lunch or come and meet our wonderful locals on our custom-built seal tour jet-boat called… Seal of Approval. We have Perth Fishing charters at Cervantes as well, on our awesome boat called Shack Attack.
We look forward to seeing you and your family for the school holidays.
