Have you tried them all?
In recent years Perth has seen a proliferation of incredible new playgrounds, especially in the newest suburbs and many of them have huge flying foxes that are popular with both kids and adults. I recently put the call out to readers for their favourite flying foxes in Perth and the response was phenomenal.

Here are the top flying foxes in Perth:
