    There are great kids events on the Bibbulmun Track, shame not to see them listed in your 100 things to do.

  2. Caroline Eadie 2 years ago

    Wouldn’t mind seeing some ideas for down south in the Dunsborough/Margaret River Area for your 2020 top 100 places like Xcape to the Cape, Country Life Farm, Wonky Windmill, Simo’s Ice cream, Yellingup maze and I’m not sure what it’s called but there’s a playground on the Busselton Foreshore that’s pretty cool. Also on the way down south in Myalup (I think) is The Crooked Carrot. Also I’ve been to the Lions Park in Armadale and it’s crap.
