Kalamunda Water Park

Kalamunda Water Park has been a Perth Hills summer destination for decades. Open seasonally from November to March, it’s back this summer with refurbished water slides.

The water parks pools are crystal clear, and very cool! Perfect for a stinking hot summer day when that warm easterly wind is blowing through the gumtrees and the Freo doctor nowhere to be seen!

There are four pools, ranging from toddler-only pools, a shallow shaded pool, slightly deeper wading pool (where I learnt to swim in the 80’s!) and the large main pool, with walking and swimming lanes.

Kalamunda Water Park’s partly shaded shallow toddler area is for children under 5 years old.

The large 50m Olympic sized lane swimming pool, which is a whopping 3.36m at its deepest point, has inflatable rings to laze or play on. On weekends, the large inflatables come out too.

Unsurprisingly, the kids were most excited about the two big tube water slides. You must be 5 years old and over to ride the slides. One of the slides is faster and twistier than the other, so the line for that is generally longer!

You ride the slides by yourself, on a small mat. The ramp where people queue is shaded. The kids spent a couple of hours sliding down the corkscrew and zig zag slides dozens of times each.

Of course, Kalamunda Water Park had a kiosk with a poolside menu of hot chips, ice cream, pies, cold drinks, coffee and toasted sandwiches.

You just can’t go for a swim and not get hot chips, am I right?!

The change room, showers and toilets were large and clean.  There are BBQs, picnic tables and plenty of shaded lawn areas to enjoy a picnic with family and friends too.

We had a fun few hours at Kalamunda Water Park. At $22.50 for a family pass (Dec 2023) and $65.50 (Dec 2023) for a family slide pass, it’s a good value day out in the Perth Hills this summer.
