The best playgrounds for little pirates and sailors
With its pristine shoreline and long maritime history, it's no surprise that Perth has a thing about boats.

We have a maritime museum, a separate museum dedicated to shipwrecks, a yacht club at just about every bay and for the kids, a fair amount of ship-themed playgrounds. In Perth's south, there are plenty of shipwreck and pirate ship parks for little sailors and swashbucklers to explore. Here is the best south of Perth.

Sienna Wood Shipwreck Park, Hilbert
Where: Corner of Forrest Road and Eleventh Road, Hilbert

I seriously think this park could knock the pirate ship park at Applecross off its perch as the best in Perth. Ok, so it doesn't have the stunning views that Heathcote boasts, but the shipwreck-themed playground is state of the art, is largely inclusive for all abilities and has a flying fox! The playground has sand and water play, mini trampolines, picnic areas and is also home to the newly opened Mooba Café. You can read a full review here.

Heathcote Reserve, Applecross
Where: 53 Duncraig Road, Applecross

Long considered the best pirate ship playground in Perth, it's pretty easy to see why. Those stunning views of the Swan River, an awesome pirate ship playground that has recently undergone a makeover, a separate area for toddlers with age-appropriate play equipment, picnic areas and the Bluewater Grill restaurant, from which you can buy takeaway food and coffee. The restaurant also has a kiosk that is open on weekends.

South Beach, South Fremantle
Where: Ocean Drive, South Fremantle

At this little playground in South Fremantle, kids can walk the plank on the SS South Beach. There is rope play, sensory play, swings and a slide – there's even a hammock! The playground is located close to the beach and South Beach Café.

Frye Park, Kelmscott
Where: Clifton Street, Kelmscott

Another playground in which children can walk the plank and feel like a real pirate! This small playground is shaped into a cute little pirate ship and has slides, ropes, portholes and the coolest child-powered music player around! There is also other ocean and ship themed play equipment plus a separate area for toddlers. You can read a full review here.

Bell Park, Rockingham
Where: Rockingham Foreshore, Rockingham Beach Road, Rockingham

The Rockingham Foreshore doesn't just have one playground – it has many dotted along the foreshore reserve. This includes a wooden pirate ship playground at the end of Bell Park. It has sensory play, rope play, log steps and a see-saw. There are plenty of options close by for food and drink, plus picnic areas.

These southern playgrounds are perfect for your little pirates and sailors, so set sail and enjoy a day on the high seas.
