Play All Day

With plenty of things to do with the kids, Katanning is a great family friendly destination perfect for your next inland escape.

Katanning’s All Ages Playground was built with big and little kids in mind. This iconic –
and more importantly, free – playground features sky scraping slides, giant seesaws and
heaps of thrilling rides, as well as spectacular early childhood and nature play areas.
Fascinated by locomotives? Next door to the All Ages Playground is the Katanning
Miniature Railway, where you can jump on board a steam or diesel train and ride around
a 700m train track. Afterwards, head to the adjacent tearooms for a delicious snack.
A visit to the Katanning Ice Creamery, located within Katanning’s Co-Op, is a must for
families with sweet teeth. Devour a scoop of creamy ice cream from this ice cream
parlour, which also serves up delicious ice cream sundaes and banana splits or take away
your favourite flavours to enjoy later.
This 100-hectare lake located 17km east of Katanning is packed full of adventure. From
camping and picnicking, to kayaking, swimming and bird watching – do it all at this
access-friendly waterway.
Home to WA’s first inland swimming pool, Katanning’s Aquatic Centre is a family friendly
water playground. Featuring a 50m Olympic swimming pool, toddler pool and learn to
swim pool, as well as free barbecue and picnic facilities, the centre is a great place to
spend the day.
Try spotting ducks, long-neck turtles and/or black swans in Piesse Lake, located within
the brand new Piesse Park precinct. Here you’ll also find a botanic garden, large naturebased
playground, outdoor amphitheatre and a dog exercise area.
