The swinging pirate ship.
Now in it’s 20th year of operation, Lollipops has been around for a while and it's still as popular as ever – the kids have a great time and parents can kick back for a coffee and a chat.
Parents – have a rest.
The multi-level playground is impressive, with so many twists and turns and tunnels to navigate. Catering for children aged four to ten, just make sure you don’t lose them in this giant maze. They will find their way out via the slides eventually.
The Perth Crochet Club meets weekly to learn crochet, meet other Perth mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
For the younger kids, there’s a dedicated area for children aged three and under with plenty of activities and things to climb on, all with the added assurance of padded floors and surfaces for clumsy toddlers still fine-tuning those co-ordination skills. There are steps to climb up and over, slides and padded see-saws, along with a small ball pit that toddlers just seem fascinated with.

You’ll also find a pretty impressive bouncing castle with steps and a slide. If all this is still not enough for the kids to do, there’s also arcade style games to play.

The café area is huge, with plenty of space for prams and baby and toddler accessories. There are heaps of itables and chairs and high chairs, so even in peak times it’s usually pretty easy to get a table.
The café itself sells hot and cold drinks, small meals and snacks for adults and kids. Entry for parents is $3.50 but this includes a free soft drink, water or hot drink for mums and dads.
If you’re looking for somewhere to hold a child’s birthday party, Lollipops in Jandakot have two dedicated party rooms for hire, meaning they can take care of all the organising without the mess to clean up after.
