Wanneroo Botanic Gardens Glow Golf

Have you played Mini Golf at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens? Even if you have played putt putt here, a wander through the magnificent gardens never gets old! Plus, there’s also Mini Glow Golf at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens! Found just 30 minutes north of Perth CBD, between Joondalup and Wanneroo, this is a lush spot for a game of mini golf. 

The well-established Wanneroo Botanic Gardens is one of the largest privately owned gardens in WA. The 5 acres of gardens feature ponds, hidden streams, green lawns and gazebos tucked away among the tropical foliage – it’s a real oasis in suburbia.

Wanneroo Botanic Mini Golf

Pay and grab your clubs and balls from the kiosk near the main entrance. Aged and up can play, meaning that it’s a fun activity for most families. Small children get their own smaller clubs to play with.

The mini golf course winds its way through the tropical-style gardens. Each hole is approximately 12 metres long and uniquely shaped with its own obstacles. There are curves, tunnels, ramps and other tricky dilemmas to conquer.

The course is mainly shaded by the huge trees around it. It is still worth wearing suncream though, if you visit on a sunny day. The majority of the holes have shaded benches or gazebos located next to them if you need a break. There is plenty of water around, so keep a close eye on younger children.

Wanneroo Botanic Mini Glow Golf

Why not try mini golf by night, with an LED light-up ball? Playing glow golf added a fun element to a regular game of mini-golf. The kids just loved it. Plus, if the ball was accidentally hit into the bushes, it made them easy to find in the dark!

We started our game just before sundown (about 7pm) on a weekend, and it was quite busy. I noticed that at about 8pm the starting holes seemed a lot quieter. Occasionally the balls lose their glow, but they just need to be bounced on the ground to light back up.

The gardens are beautifully lit at night, with many of the tall trees adorned with fairy lights. This gets stepped up to a whole other level during their Magic of Christmas light event.

Return your balls and clubs to the kiosk after you play, or pay an extra charge to keep your ball.

We had a great time exploring the gardens. The kids loved discovering all the little bridges that cross the stream that meanders its way through the middle of the lush gardens.

Wanneroo Botanic Billiard Golf

And once you’ve finished – why not start another game? Did you know that you have the option to play not one, but two rounds of 18 holes here – Botanic Golf and Billiard Golf.

The gardens and lily-pad-covered pond are just stunning! The well-hidden Billiard Golf is a tricky little game of deflection. The track surface is slower and the idea of the game is to deflect the ball from the track edge into the hole, just like Pool or Billiards.

If you have worked up a hearty appetite by the end of the course, be sure to head to Leapfrogs, which serves a range of tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

Alternatively, the kiosk sells ice cream, chocolate, soft drinks, lollies, fairy floss and popcorn too.
