It’s that crazy time of year – I bet your calendar is getting booked up, but make sure you fit some of these fun things in among the family events and work lunches. It’s only fitting as we head towards Christmas that there’s tonnes of eating and drinking to be done, but I’ve also lined up some incredible markets, a moving play about friendship and vampires, a chance to get among all things cruelty-free, and a summer street party.
Dogs! Wine! Vintage goodness! Yep this week there really is something for everyone, whether you want to take a road trip down south for one of my favourite events of the year, or roll up to the foreshore and have the best of the south west region brought to you. Chuck in one of the first outdoor movies of the season and a fabulous brunch with drag queens, and this weekend is looking pretty damn impressive!
It’s set to be a glorious, sunny week in Perth, which means no excuses to stay home (unless, of course, you’re mid-way through an amazing book because then I totally understand!). As always there’s plenty of things to see, eat and do around ton – including another hawkers market to dazzle your tastebuds, a handmade market where you can get a start on your Christmas shopping, a unique photographic exhibition, a fun night of burlesque, and the chance to meet one of Australia’s most famous dogs!
I’m keeping things short and sweet this week, but don’t worry I’ve still got the goods to make it easy to plan an epic week in Perth. Heading up this week is a standout film festival, another opportunity to eat delicious foods in a bustling outdoor market setting, a good excuse to visit Fremantle if you haven’t been in a while, a wine tasting event with over 250 wines to try, and the lowdown on all the best Halloween events.
I love that there’s always something to look forward to in Perth. When I first started blogging five years ago, the ‘Perth is boring’ sentiment was running strong. Thankfully these days that sentiment is starting to change. There is so much diversity in this little city of ours that there is always SOMETHING on – you just need to know where to look! This week, with an exhibition dedicated to one of Perth’s favourite actors, night markets, a food and wine festival, a chance to get up close with elephants, and an overnight event to get you in the mood for Halloween, you’re in the right place!
The clouds are clearing, the days are warming up, and Perth is really bringing its best with a whole bunch of awesome things on the radar as we head into summer. From a beer degustation and kustom culture celebration, to theatre, a moving historical exhibition and the city’s most stylish market, I’ve got the lowdown on the best things to see, eat and do in Perth this week.
Hands up if you’ve ever had leftover cake for breakfast? If you have a snack draw at work, filled with chocolate? If you regularly save a tiny bit of room for dessert when you go out? Sugar fiends rejoice, as a fellow lover of all things sweet and indulgent, I’m here to guide you through some of the best treats our city has to offer. So come on over and join me sweet tooths – it’s time for a sugar high!
