Hunt the kids in Busso!
By Marnie Adams, Contributor @ Kids In Perth 08 Aug 2022
For most of us, family weekends are made up of seemingly mindless, mundane routine.
In a quick blur, does your family weekend look like this?
Ubering the kids to extracurricular classes or sport in the morning.
Followed by the joys of car park hunting and getting through busy crowds at your local shopping centre.
Along the way, inhaling a quick lunch with the kids only to come home to more housework and gardening before sunset for next week's rent inspection.
Fixing dinner in record time as if you’re on Masterchef. Shovel the kids off to bed.
Only to end the day with the regret of not really doing anything fun or creating great memories with the kids during precious family time?
If these frustratingly, familiar family weekends are your norm… Get out of the city.
Take a daytrip to… Busselton.
