Perth's Weekend Getaway Accessible For The Whole Family 

We’ve crafted this itinerary to ensure a stress-free and accessible visit to Perth because we believe every family deserves to create unforgettable memories together, and that no one should have to miss out.


Pagoda Resort & Spa, located just minutes from the Perth CBD, is a riverside hotel that caters to mobility aids and low vision. Whether you have a big or small family, the accommodation provides modern options for groups of all sizes.

The resort is located in the City of South Perth and it is close to the South Perth Foreshore, a spot we’d recommend for a sunset picnic against the backdrop of the twinkling city lights.

Dinner Options

On Friday and Saturday evenings, a range of dinner options can be found on the nearby Labouchere Road and Mill Point Road.

If you would prefer to stay in, at the resort you’ll find Waterwall Restaurant & Bar, a relaxed dining venue with views overlooking the pool and tropical landscaped gardens. Of course, room service is also always an option, so if a family movie night is on the cards, this might just be the very best combination.

Arrival: Friday

It’s time to pack your bags and create some core memories to fondly look back on with the family. You’re welcome to arrive at Pagoda Resort & Spa for check-in anytime from 2pm.

Day 1: Saturday - Perth City 


Rise and shine! For breakfast on Saturday morning, you’ll be spoiled for choice with many options close by. These include the hotel restaurant, coffee shops, delis, and cafes that are all within close proximity.

Scenic Flight 

It's time to embark on an experience that you’ll be reminiscing over for years to come. There really is no better way to see the beauty of Perth than from above with a Swan River Seaplanes Scenic Flight. Take in the awe-inspiring aerial views of the city and the shimmering aqua waters of the coast with a company that creates a dignified, inclusive experience for all. 

Swan River Seaplanes accommodate service and emotional support dogs, along with the transportation of mobility aids and assistive devices. They also offer the transportation of companions through the WA Companion Card Program.

Now it’s time to giddily discuss everything you just experienced over lunch in the CBD. Here, you’ll find a broad array of places with dine-in and take-out options, offering multiple cuisines and varying price ranges. The choice is yours!

The Perth Mint

The Perth Mint is an affordable and exciting activity for the whole family. Learn about the captivating history of Western Australia’s gold rush era, witness a live gold pour, and view Australia’s largest natural nugget collection. 

This tourist attraction has been designed to include wide passageways and ramps, allowing a smooth experience for visitors with mobility aids.

Day 2 and Departure: Sunday - Sunset Coast

Breakfast at Odyssea City Beach 

After checking out of the resort, head to Perth's breathtaking Sunset Coast for Breakfast at Odyssea City Beach. Find yourself in awe of the expansive views of the cyan Indian Ocean washing against the shore, as you sit and indulge in one of their many delectable dishes. 

There is a ramp from the car park that leads directly into the restaurant and outdoor deck, catering for those with limited mobility and mobility aids. Odyssea is conscious that people may have needs around noise reduction and are happy to accommodate a space that is better suited to these needs.

Take a drive up the scenic coast to The Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA), the home of one of Perth’s cherished family day-out activities. Across 45 exhibits, you’ll explore over 12,000 km of Western Australia's fascinating coastline. This engaging and educational underwater adventure allows the whole family to get up close with stingrays, sharks, turtles, octopuses, and more. 

AQWA has always been all about everyone. There are ramped wheelchair entry and exit points, lift access to the Shipwreck Coast, and a gate that can be opened by staff upon request to the Marina Bay Aquarium. It’s important to note that the maximum width of the moving walkway at the Shipwreck Coast is 1.2 meters and the stationary platform is 1.1 meters; therefore, some larger, modern mobility aids may not fit the space. 

For those who prefer a quiet, low-sensory environment, it’s recommended to visit from 1:30 pm once the morning rush has left.
