A list of some of the fantastic aeroplane activities for families in Perth.

My three year old daughter is utterly fascinated by aeroplanes, and never fails to point one out as it flies through the air. Perhaps it is the 30-odd flights she has taken in her short life, the pure excitement of travelling or the sheer size of the planes that makes them awe-inspiring for her.

If your children are as equally fascinated by flying, Perth has a number of activities you dedicated to air travel, including the Perth Airport Viewing Platform, the Aviation Museum in Bull Creek and a range of flight simulation centres. If you’re looking for aeroplane and air travel related activities in Perth, read on.

Perth Airport Viewing Platform

Dunreath Drive, Perth Airport (turn right at the big roundabout)

If you want to see some aeroplanes landing and taking off in Perth, the Perth Airport Viewing Platform is the place to go. It is located around 3 to 4 kilometres from the domestic airport and has a free carpark plus wheelchair and pram access.

As our writer Shannon points out in this excellent article about the platform, Perth Airport is not Heathrow, and there can be a long wait between planes coming and going. It is also important to remember that if the weather is unfavourable, the planes will land at another runway. You can read the full article here.

The platform is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm from April to September and from 6:30am to 7:00am during October to March.
