We have plenty of grassed and shaded area for you to relax and enjoy your stay but get in early to reserve your area as these get snapped up quickly.  

You are welcome to bring your own shade but please confirm this with management prior to your visit.  So come down to Kalamunda Water Park and make your stay one you’ll never forget.
