Westfield Carousel has some great family-friendly features when you need to go shopping with the kids.
I seriously dislike shopping with my children, but sometimes, it cannot be avoided. I’m forever grateful though, that Perth has some fantastic family-friendly shopping centres to make the task a little easier.
Having recently undergone an amazing redevelopment, Westfield Carousel now boasts a number of big-name fashion brands plus some fantastic features that make it great for parents.
The Mandurah Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Mandurah mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
School Holiday Activities
During school holidays, Westfield Carousel hosts a number of activities including workshops, arts, crafts and seasonal activities. Many activities are based on the latest movies, characters, books or current trends kids love.
If the kids won’t sit in a trolley but you have a bit of shopping to get done, you can hire a Kiddy Car! They are available for hire from the customer service desk, located near the food court entrance.
Optus Stadium will be transformed into the city’s biggest Christmas Festival in November and December.
The rooftop playground is a new addition to Carousel. It is open during centre trading hours and all children are welcome. It is free, but children must be supervised while playing.

Hoyts at Westfield Carousel is a fantastic, family-friendly cinema to enjoy a school holiday, weekend or evening movie with the kids, or to have a kiddie-free date night. I recently visited with my children aged 2 and 4 and we loved the relaxing recliner seats while watching Toy Story 4!
They offer weekly Prams at the Pix, Hoyts baby-friendly movie sessions, where you can see the latest blockbusters with your baby in tow.
Hoyts Carousel is also home to Hoyts Lux, the premium cinema experience in which you can enjoy food and drinks served right to your seat!
