12 Awesome Things To Do In Perth This Weekend

By Shelby West - 23 Jun 2016

It’s getting to that time of year (we like to call it hump month) where you’re feeling a little unmotivated and the work days seem to be getting longer and longer… But the shortest day of the year is finally behind us so things can only get better from here.

So rug up in your winter woolies and get out on the town this weekend because we’ve got plenty of fun lined up including some rad gigs, a few cheeky cocktails, some markets, loads of truffles and a yoga rave. Intrigued? Check out these 12 awesome things to do in Perth this weekend.

Friday 24 June


What better way to spend a cool winter’s night than sipping on mulled wine and devouring delicious street eats? Winter Supper Club is back and better than ever this Friday night. A Winter Arts Festival event not to be missed, we highly recommend the Twin Beaks duck confit brioche burgers, yum!

Where: Perth Town Hall, Perth
When: 5pm, 24 June (plus the last Friday of every winter month)

If you can get away from Perth this weekend then you’d best head to Manjimup—the heart of truffle country—for their sixth annual Truffle Kerfuffle event. Not only will you be able to buy and try all things truffle, but you’ll also be able to grab tickets to masterclasses, degustation dinners and banquet lunches. Whip out the glamping gear and get moving!

Get creative tomorrow night by heading down to Fremantle, covering yourself in UV paints and doing all of the yoga. Painting starts at 7pm sharp followed by a yoga sesh, then at 8:30 the UV lights go on and the chanting begins, followed by a bit of glow in the dark dancing. This sounds cray cray fun!

Where: E-Shed Fremantle
When: 7pm, 24 June
Tickets: $25, book here

Heads Up!


Winter has hit and we’ve been on the lookout for cocktails and drinks that ooze that wintery feel—think spice and all things nice! We hit the jackpot when we recently discovered Baron Samedi Spiced—its name pays homage to Baron Samedi, the ruler of the dark and guardian of the afterlife. Baron Samedi Spiced is made with smooth Caribbean rum and spices such as vanilla, cocoa and cinnamon. Sound like something you’d want to get your hands on? You’re in luck. Three of our favourite bars, Skye Bar, The Windsor and Ocean One Bar, are serving up all kinds of delicious drinks. Head to any of these venues any time in July and you’ll find Baron Samedi Spiced the featured drink of the month.

Where: Skye Bar, The Windsor and Ocean One Bar
When: All of July
