There are two mini golf courses in Mandurah – the course at Kings Carnival in Halls Head and the course at Amaze Miniature Village (formerly Abingdon). They both have pros and cons –but which is the best course?

Kings Carnival
Kings Carnival is the one of the oldest amusement sites in Western Australia, situated on the banks of the Mandurah Estuary with a stunning view over the blue waters. While entry to the Carnival is free, the rides obviously are not, and a round of mini golf at their 18-hole course will set you back $14.

The course is far from new, and shows its ages in some places, but there is no denying the picturesque location and lush grounds. It is also full of quirky Australiana touches, such as cement mixers and lawn mowers.

The course itself is relatively simple and relies on obstacles and gradients rather than anything more fancy. There is plenty of shade although not much seating around the course.

The major advantage of Kings Carnival is its location and the fact it is open every day.

The major disadvantage is that unless you have particularly unusual children, the fact that the mini golf course is located in a Carnival will probably mean you will be nagged for other rides or bags of fairy floss.

Address: Kings Carnival, Leighton Place, Halls Head
Cost: Adults $14, seniors and kids under 14 years $11
Open daily from 9am to 5pm

Amaze Miniature Village
When Abingdon shut down in early 2015 there a collective sigh of disappointment but it has now reopened as Amaze and contains a 12 hole mini golf course, two mazes and four acres of manicured gardens with model houses and trains.

The course itself is very basic, with simple obstacles and no whizz bang gadgetry. Unlike the rest of the Village, the mini golf course is quite sparse and there is no lush lawns, just shrubs and gravel paths.

The major advantage of Amaze is that the entry price (also $14) includes unlimited rounds of golf as well as all of the other attractions of the park, including the lush gardens and huge mazes.

The major disadvantage of the course is that it is only open four days a week (except summer school holidays when it is open almost every day except Wednesdays).

Address: 24 Husband Rd, Barragup
Cost: Adults $14, kids under 15 $12
Open Friday through to Monday, from 10am to 4.30pm
