Good things come to those who wait and fans of The Maze are certainly in for a good time with the arrival of Outback Splash, the newest water park to hit Perth.

Newly opened on the 21 December, Stage 1 of the Outback Splash is the first part of The Maze's big ambitions for a huge water park.

Dubbed as Australia's biggest waterslide playground, Outback Splash features 6 waterslides:
2 lane toddler slide
family slide
4 large slides

All in addition to lots of showers and spraying jets, water tunnels, hoses and the giant bucket that fills up and then dunks you from overhead.

The addition of the water slide park to the Maze has added a whole new dimension of fun to the park and definitely makes this a whole day attraction.

There's something for everyone here and the whole brood can fit on the large blue family slide and whizz down into the water. When we visited, there was a fabulous DJ creating a Summer soundtrack to chill out to in the water, and this created a real party atmosphere.

Around the water park there are numerous sun loungers (some shaded), and if you want to nab one of these, come early to avoid disappointment. If you're not lucky enough to bag a seat in the shade, you can bring your picnic rug, towels or beach tent to set up camp right next to the fun, on the adjacent grass areas.

There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax on. Changing rooms are well appointed, clean and include showers too. For waterside refreshments there's a snack kiosk and the adjacent Cafe Iguana for more substantial meals. Whilst suited to all ages within your family, there's no real 'splash pool' for any babies within your party.

We had a 6 month old with us when we visited and he was happy enough to play in the jets on the ground, and even came down a slide with us, but if you've got younger kids than this, you might want to set up in the shaded area if the waterpark isn't their thing.

What Else is There to do There?
The arrival of Outback Splash is fantastic news for Perth folk, but there's a tonne of things to do at the Maze if getting wet and wild isn't for you. Check out the below attractions so that you can plan to fit in a full day of fun in your next visit.


Mazes

Tractor Maze



With five different mazes to choose from, you can challenge your friends and family to endless quests to find the way out of the maze. Little ones will enjoy the bright colours and fun of the Tractor Tyre Maze, and all the family can get lost in the giant timber maze.

Koalas

Koalas are a big attraction at the Maze with daily koala talks in addition to a meet and greet session with the koalas at the Breakfast with Koalas on Sundays, where you can get up close and personal with these gorgeous furry creatures.

Mini Golf
Included in your admission price is mini golf, and the course here is beautifully appointed within the cool shade of the front gardens of the Maze. It's a 9 hole course full of curves and turns to challenge you to get your ball in the hole.

Animals
In addition to the fluffy koalas that The Maze has become famous for, you can also meet emus kangaroos and a whole host of birds on your trip around this family attraction. In the aviary look out for Henry and some of his winged friends who will surprise you when they talk back to you. Look out for camel riding opportunities too.

Jumping Pillow

The jumping pillow, as the name suggests, is a giant inflated pillow that you can jump on. This is so much fun for kids (and big kids) and if you're worried about your little toddlers going on with the older kids, wait till specific toddler jumping times when they can jump to their hearts content without risk of getting bopped by the bigger kids.

Playground

The adventure playground is a well appointed wooden framed play area on a woodchip ground, for soft landings. Adjacent to a number of picnic benches and BBQs this is a great place for kids to explore whilst the parents get the food ready. Just away from the main timber frame, there is also a 4 person see-saw type structure that is heaps of bouncy fun.

Chess

If you lost at mini golf, then never fear, just challenge your opponent to a game at the adjacent giant chess board. Grab your child size pawns and use your smarts to get you to check mate super fast.

Your Comment
This place looked fantastic when I thought it was just a water park, but as I scrolled down and saw all the other things available, I was amazed at how much goes on there.

Does the $105 (2A & 2C) just get you in the water park or is that the Maze as well?

I live on clarkson, and don't drive, it takes 27 mins to travel there in a car, but using public transport takes 2 1/2 hours, would be nice to have buses go straight to outback splash from joondalup!! But once we got there the children absolutely loved it, so thankyu
