Jurien has long been a favourite spot for Perthites to visit, whether as a stop-off on a journey up north, or as a final destination. The recent upgrade of the foreshore ensures that it will be a favourite holiday spot for years to come.
Tapping into the town’s rich maritime heritage the new playground is reminiscent of its most famous commodity, crayfish! The huge main structure resembles giant cray pots! Stacked on top of each other the interior is a twisted maze of logs and rope nets to challenge older kids.
The reward for getting through the maze is a huge slide. I love this part of the playground, often it is hard to find obstacles to challenge older kids, plus the difficulty in completing the task is a deterrent for younger kids who may find the height of the slide a bit scary.
The little ones aren’t forgotten though, with lots of sand play and water play activities to keep them busy. They can pretend to be pirates in the boats and crow’s nest or swing on the net swing.
Next to the new playground is a half basketball court and a massive skate park. The skate park is under lights so the fun can continue after another epic WA sunset. Or take a walk along the huge jetty and soft sandy beach. Having kids ranging in age from 3-14 there was something here to keep them all happy.
Unfortunately, the planned toilet block and kiosk (and rumoured beach bar, yes please!) have been delayed but temporary toilets are on site.
Jurien Bay is a 2.5 hour drive from Perth, the foreshore park runs along Heaton Street. Parking along the foreshore is free.
