By Pim Pattanasuk - 02 Feb 2017

Perthies, despite the week being off to a rainy and cold start (what even was that?) it’s all uphill from here with loads of cool activities and events that’ll help you embrace that glorious sunshine! This weekend you’re absolutely spoilt for choice with markets, festivals and day parties, or if you’re not up for a big one, perhaps a few days to practice the art of meditation. Whether you’re rocking it with your mates or you're going solo—you won’t be twiddling your thumbs, that's for sure.

Here are 11 incredible things to do in Perth this weekend!
