The Lotterywest Whale Playground is full of unique and creative play elements that will keep kids entertained for hours on end.

There's a life-size whale skeleton with a slide, monkey bars, ladders, swings and netted tunnels plus a huge cubbyhouse, spinning disks, climbing pods and sensory play elements.  

The playground is an art piece, inspired by stories from the Noongar culture where the belief is a whale will beach itself when it comes to the end of its life so it can return an ancestor’s spirit to the land. The skeleton was designed by artist Jahne Rees. 

This attraction is supported by Lotterywest.
