The School holidays are almost here which means that you may have some time up your sleeve to plan an activity or two with the kids. I have pulled together a guide for Local Advantage Members to use as inspiration and save money in the South West – including Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Dunsborough and the surrounding areas.
All the offers below are subject to change and may have important terms & conditions – please check your app for details. Advance bookings are recommended. I would love to see and hear about your adventures – tag Local Advantage in your social media for a chance to score bonus days on your membership.
Enjoy the savings and thanks for supporting local business, I hope you find this useful.
1. GRAVITY ETC
My kids ask me almost daily if we can go so I have started with this super fun, easy and energetic activity. This Indoor trampolining centre in Dallyelup (Nr Bunbury) is always a hit with kids and parents.

3. CAPE LEEUWIN LIGHTHOUSE | CAPE NATURALISTE LIGHTHOUSE
As the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse is a must-see attraction. This historic lighthouse is situated just south of Augusta, at the tip of a spectacular peninsula – where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet – the most south-westerly point of Australia.
Only 13 kilometres from Dunsborough, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions in the Geographe Bay and Margaret River Region. Easier than most lighthouses to climb, the lighthouse tower, and the restored cottages reveal the fascinating maritime history of the Cape region. This beautifully restored heritage precinct includes the period-themed Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage Cafe, offering delicious coffee, refreshments and light lunches.
Both lighthouses are open 9:00am – 5:00pm daily (closed Christmas Day) with guided tours departing every 30 minutes, on the hour and half hour. Local Advantage members save 15% off Adult, Child & Family passes (Online bookings only).
4. WONKY WINDMILL
Grab your wellies and get outdoors for some farm fun at Wonky Windmill. My three kids always have so much fun running around feeding the animals. You can also relax and enjoy the homecooked cafe food (I highly recommend the Devonshire tea) or explore the orchards and pick spray free fruit.
Local Advantage members enjoy half-price adult farm entry & a half-price Devonshire tea.
5. DISCOVER DEADLY
