Welcome to the Swan Valley's Kids in the Valley Trail!

Where kids and grown-ups alike can feed Australian wildlife, cuddle farm animals, venture on a bush walk and so much more. Whether it's the excitement of seeing some of Western Australia’s coolest reptiles, enjoying delicious chocolate and ice cream, playing a round of mini golf, or giving the cutest baby animals a big hug, the Kids in the Valley Trail has something for everyone.

All explorers need to eat, so once you’ve run the kids ragged, revive the family at one of the many venues on the trail that offer specialised children’s menus and treats. Just follow the map to find them! You can also have fun at Bells Rapids on the hiking trail, or enjoy a picnic by the river.

The activities on the Swan Valley Kids in the Valley Trail can be enjoyed over many days. They’re ideal for school holiday fun, a family day out or a weekend stay. We suggest you choose one adventure, a lunch stop and a special treat stop each time you visit.
