OMG guys the end is near. Most of us only have a couple of days of work left (soz to everyone who works in retail) and this weekend, we all deserve to blow off a bit of steam before sitting down to Christmas lunch with the fam on Monday. Whether you plan on welcoming Christmas with a raging hangover or would prefer to hit up some festive movies or carols, we've found something for you.
Here are 9 super fun things to do in Perth this weekend.
Christmas On Rottnest Island
Having a white Christmas is probably on most of our bucket lists, but being able to spend Christmas lying in the sun with family and friends ain’t so bad either. Plus, Santa will be hanging out in the Settlement and North Thomson from tomorrow morning until Christmas eve, so hunt him down and say hello. Buy your ferry tickets here and spend your Christmas weekend building sandcastles and snorkelling with Santa.
