Perth for a weekend

We are 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a baby and will be spending a weekend in Perth in December after a long flight. We would like to stay within walking distance of loads restaurants, bars and entertainment for kids. Any recommendations? Thanks

The CBD or Northbridge.

You can search on consolidator sites like wotif.com.au

Also consider Fremantle. Free CAT bus to get around, plenty to do as well. On train line and your teenagers might love Cottesloe Beach- has good shaded lawn area for you and baby-at that time of the year there is a free shuttle to the beach from Cottesloe train station if you didn't want to do the pleasant 15 minute walk. Also Leighton Beach easily accessed from North Freo station. These areas are patrolled by lifesavers- always swim between flags.

South Beach, Freo is accessed by CAT bus with nice lawn area and shade. Cafés in these places. Beaches best done morning and late afternoon- you can get easily burnt here in Perth so sunscreen, hat and sunglasses are a must here.

I like Freo as well, and there's a huge park with play equipment just across the road from the Esplanade Hotel, if baby is toddling.
