Perth and Margaret River in June

After 2 years, my family is finally getting a chance to travel, and we'll be in Perth and the surrounding area for 10 days in early June. We have 2 youngish kids (4 and 7), and currently don't have anything specific we want to do besides wander around and just enjoy travelling again. Any suggestions for things we should do and places we should go to? COVID-regulations-specific advice would be great too! [more inside]
