Welcome to South West Mums – the information hub for Mums and families in South West Western Australia. You'll find loads of family friendly things to do right around our region, as well as ways that you can connect with other mums through our online community.
There is no shortage of things to do, places to go and destinations to explore in our beautiful region and we want to share all of them with you! We provide loads of information on the best places to visit and explore with your family – from cafes, restaurants, family fun destinations, parks & playgrounds, breweries – we’ve gathered them all in one place for you.
Creating community and connection is so important, especially in the early stages of motherhood, and want to make sure that every Mum has someone to talk to, somewhere to ask a question.
We also recognise the rise in FIFO families here in the West and we have created some useful resources for them too.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website and we look forward to seeing you somewhere in the South West soon!

About Kate - Founder SWM
Hi! I'm Kate and I created South West Mums! I'm a FIFO wife and Mum to two beautiful, crazy boys! Haze is 4 and goes to Kindy and Tex is 2 (and super cheeky). Our lives are full of adventure, love and wonder ... with some chaos thrown in for good measure.
You’ll generally find me at a park somewhere in the South West, coffee in one hand, phone in the other – bringing all the fantastic elements of our South West straight to you! I'm passionate about connecting Mums in our region and creating a supportive community network.
My favourite pass time, outside of my children, is writing - it's what makes me happy. I love to write about all sorts of things, but I feel strongly about sharing our FIFO lifestyle and it's unique challenges, sharing my thoughts on being a motherless mother, as well helping to bring topics that can be hard to talk about into the limelight, like mental health issues and relationship issues affecting parents in our modern world.
I love mail, so if you have anything you'd like to see on SWM, please feel free to get in touch!
