Things To Do In Perth


Hooly dooly friends, there is an epic smorgasbord of events this weekend with something that will tickle everyone's fancy! Whether it be getting around a giant 50-tonne fire breathing mechanical spider, listening to seriously sick tunes, celebrating summer, welcoming Christmas or having a few laughs with your friends—expect a big few days!

Here are 13 amazing things to do in Perth this weekend.

Friday 25 November

Pretty Little Labels | Fremantle

We think there’s something pretty spesh about supporting local creatives, which is why we’ll be heading to Freo tomorrow night. Pretty Little Labels is a fashion show which is 100% dedicated to WA brands and it will give us shoppers a behind-the-scenes look at what happens before that cute little dress or cool AF shirt gets hung in our wardrobe. Top that off with delish bites and plenty of drinks and you've got yourself an intimate little look into the farshun world!

Where: Common Ground Collective, Fremantle

Arcadia Australia | Perth

While we're not huge fans of spiders here, (you can expect instant ninja transformation if there is one close by) there is something seriously awesome about a giant 50-tonne fire breathing mechanical spider. Arcadia is happening for the first time ever in Australia and it’s happening in our beautiful city. If that’s not enough to convince the crew, the 360-degree visual and audio display will host international and national DJs like Alison Wonderland, Carmada, Elk Road, Zeke Beats, Leftfield, Shy Fx, Loston, Black & Blunt And Kovaxx. Take my money!
