Enjoy 10 new attractions plus all-time family favourites

Perth's biggest winter event is back with an awesome line-up of BRAND NEW attractions including Insects ALIVE!, the exhilarating family-friendly Dream Swinger ride and fabulous Zap-o-Nauts Live Show, PLUS unlimited carnival show rides, interactive gaming, fabulous stage shows and educational exhibits!

Expect 5 jam-packed days of school holiday excitement under Perth's largest big top tent!

After previous SELL OUT years, we encourage you to get your tickets early to your preferred session time by clicking here.

Enjoy a fantastic selection of fun carnival rides, the very best children's entertainment shows, unique and creative activities, fun educational exhibits and roving performers. All this and more from Wednesday 4th to Sunday 8th July 2018 under the Big Top at Hertha Reserve, 21 Cedric St, Stirling WA 6021.

This year's extravaganza will go ahead rain, hail or shine, as it is all undercover and a one-time entry fee gains you access to loads of activities, rides, entertainment, exhibits and more!

Kids Wonderland 2018 brings you a never before seen attraction, Insects ALIVE!, which will be hidden in the Wonderland Garden Oasis. Get up close and personal with beautiful giant animatronic insects! These flying, fluttering friends are sure to be a hit with all ages!

The Wonderland Maze will entertain the whole family with a treasure hunt through an Alice in Wonderland-themed activity and if you after an adrenaline rush, don't miss The Dream Swinger, an iconic wave swinger style ride. Towering at 12m high, it is WA's newest major ride and offers spectacular 360 views and the ultimate thrills!

And the non-stop excitement continues with the Zap-o-Nauts Live Show, an unbelievable spectacular of fire, acrobatics and wit. Join Tarrabelle & Rusty in this hilarious space-themed show which will have you on the edge of your (rocket) seat.

Your little scientist will also love EinSTeiN's Top Secret Science workshop where they will get to play with oozy, stretchy, gloopy and wonderfully gross slime!

You can also slide into Kids Wonderland on the 20m long Buggybuddys Snow SIide. Grab a toboggan and enjoy the ride down this super fast real snow slide!

Event spokesperson Mark Marinovich said "We are really excited to showcase to the families of Perth the best winter school holiday event ever. Being our 5th year, we have secured some never before seen attractions and we have a few surprises in store on the day!"

Additional activities under the big top include the mix94.5 Kids Silent Disco, where you watch your young ones bust a move, in silence. The Perth Now ChillOut! Arcade includes all your gaming favourites including a huge slot-car racing track.

But it's not just about the kids - superstar parents can chillax in the City of Stirling Parents Oasis and enjoy a hot cup of coffee from Stitches Coffee, with part of the proceeds donated to the Perth Children's Hospital Foundation. For the kids, there will be the traditional fair favourites: fairy floss and fresh popcorn! There will also be food and beverages available to purchase inside the Big Top!

All child ticket holders receive a Free Show Gift thanks to the Little Legends Club, a free popcorn & a free sideshow game when they arrive - on top of all the free entertainment once inside.

Kids WonderlandTM proudly supports our Official Charity Partner for 2018 Perth Children's Hospital Foundation.
