Putting together a kid’s party seems so simple …  but then you actually sit down and think about what you need to do and you feel like your head might explode. And every mum wants the day to be awesome for their little one! So we’ve brought together a range of ideas and services that will make it that little bit easier. Our Party Guide is a great starting point full of local businesses offering fun venues, entertainment and supplies to help you organise the party of the year!


Croc’s Playcentre

Stuck for kids birthday party ideas? Then look no further than Croc’s Playcentre Prospect, a party venue like no other! There’s a range of exciting themed party rooms for kids, including exclusive interactive party options. Party packages can be tailored to create the special day your child is dreaming of. With the choice of selected food options, kid’s activities, kid’s games, parent’s platters and additional extras Croc’s guarantees…. fun for kids… and fun for all!

You will receive a dedicated party host to meet your every need, unlimited play and, of course leave the cleaning to Croc’s! The play facilities have been designed by a leading indoor play specialist and are intended to accommodate children of all ages.

There are basic themed party rooms or you can choose one of the specially-themed party packages such as the Make, Bake and Create Party where kids make their own pizza, bake it and create and decorate a cookie to take home later. The disco karaoke party is held in a disco party room and parents can watch what’s happening via a TV outside the room, so no need to cramp your kid’s style! Then there’s a pamper party option which includes a mini mani and pedi and rose petal foot soak. Party guests receive pink lemonade and mini cupcakes on arrival and food is more high tea/canape style plus a lolly bar. Kids get the use of silky robes and magazines and everyone gets a glitter tattoo.

And while the kids have a fabulous party, parents can relax and enjoy a coffee from the in-house Muffin Break!
