Spring has officially sprung, so with higher temperatures and longer days, we’re officially ready to fling off our puffer jacket and take on the city this month. Whether you’re an adventure junkie looking to tackle insane rock climbing walls or a foodie looking to devour your next life-changing bite, we’ve got you covered. 

To help you live your best life in Perth this spring, we’ve teamed up with the guys at Scoopon. So fire up the group chat and start planning. 

Stuff Yourself Silly At A South-East Asian Buffet 

Pan Pacific Perth Monterey's Brasserie 

Rally your mates, your family and your neighbours because there’s something for absolutely everyone at Monterey's South-East Asian all-you-can-eat buffet. This luxurious venue is located in the Pan Pacific Perth hotel and we promise you it will level-up any all-in dining experience you’ve ever had. 

Pile your plate high with a flavourful selection of seafood like traditional fish Laksa, fresh tiger prawns or Singaporean chilli crab. The meatier options are just as delicious, so don't bypass them. We’re talking shredded pork and roast peanut noodle salad, Nasi goreng with beef satay, hoisin duck and crispy, roasted pork belly. And if dessert is more of a must-have than optional for you, get excited because there is a sweet selection of sago and mango pudding, passionfruit créme brulee and fried banana fritters with honey toffee sauce to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The best part? You can down this all and a glass of house booze at up to 34 per cent off. Ready for seconds? We know we are. 

Escape To The Swan Valley’s Newest Eatery 

The Swans Restaurant & Function House   

A day trip to Western Australia’s idyllic Swan Valley is always high on our hit list but when it involves picturesque new venues and mouth-watering eats, even better. 

If modern Australian-meets-Italian influences is your foodie vibe, you can’t go past The Swans Restaurant & Function House. Surrounded by stunning floral gardens and rustic outdoor settings, this is the place to be come springtime. Chow down on classic starters like melt-in-your-mouth mushroom and pumpkin arancini balls or crispy local beer-battered squid. Chase these with decadent mains like duck ragu and wild mushroom pappardelle, wood-fired steak and capsicum pizza or cheesy bocconcini-stuffed chicken roulade (we’re not drooling, you are). What’s more, you can snag a two-course lunch or dinner with drinks at up to 52 per cent off, thanks to Scoopon. Sounds like it’s time to ditch the city and spend a day dining in the Swan Valley.

Climb High With This Thrilling Adventure

Climb Zone

Let’s be real, spin class is so last year. This spring, swap your regular workout for an adrenaline-inducing session at Climb Zone. This is one for the whole crew, so dial up your fearless mates and kick-start your weekend like never before.  

First up, tackle the high ropes. We can assure you’ll have a true Tarzan moment feeling like you’re swinging through the trees. Next, strap on your hard hat because you’ll be hitting the rock climbing wall—at 8.5 metres high we challenge you to race your mates to the top. You can retire happy (and exhausted) after the three-hour sweat session too knowing you scored up to 61 per cent off the price.

Chase Panoramic Sunset Views Of Perth 

The Boatshed Restaurant

Sidle up to The Boatshed Restaurant and you’ll instantly be impressed by the 180-degree views of the Swan River and city skyline. Couple this with a glass of rosé at sunset and you’ve easily scored one of the most romantic spots in the city. 

Luckily it’s not just about views and vino here, they also serve up mouth-watering eats boasting fresh, flavoursome local produce. And if you’re eager for something a little more meatier, tuck into a fitting seafood entree of szechuan calamari, new potatoes, Spanish chorizo and romesco.  

If you’re feeling hungry, follow the starters with a stellar main like the royal blue potato gnocchi with napolitana, gorgonzola cream, spinach and parmesan for a vegetarian option. And with 37 per cent off your two-course meal for two while, you’ll have you're plenty of coin left to work your way through their tasty dessert menu too. 

Indulge In An Italian Feast

Siena’s Of Leederville

No need to book flights because you can indulge in the best of Italy right here in Perth. If you have a hankering for pasta, we recommend you make your way to Siena’s Of Leederville, a humble yet homely restaurant decked out in creative frescoes and historic-style statues.

You’ll be greeted with flavourful, uncomplicated Italian fare that will leave any carb lover satisfied—especially when you can nab your meal at up to 39 per cent off. Start with a sharing antipasto platter of cured meats, olives, cheeses and crusty bread, and a glass (or two) of the house red, of course. 

Try to refrain from drooling at the selection of authentic mains—we’re talking woodfired pizza with a selection of meats, vegetarian calzone stuffed with mushroom, capsicum and pumpkin or a selection of fresh pasta like seafood spaghetti or pumpkin ravioli. Our bet is you’ll be waddling home happy. 

Shake Up Your Workout With Rock Climbing      

City Summit Rock Climbing Centre 

After all that pizza and pasta we suggest ditching the gym in favour of something a bit out of the box at City Summit Rock Climbing Centre. Make your way to Malaga for a sky-high experience like no other as this venue boasts custom-designed walls that rival the best rock climbing centres in the world. 

Be sure to harness up because we suggest embracing your inner superhero and tackling the SpiderWall. As the largest wall in the venue, it boasts a variety of twists and turns, and is a satisfying challenge to conquer. If that’s a tad beyond your comfort zone, opt for the Dreamcatcher, an equally challenging route that will leave you feeling on top of the world (or the wall, at least).

Dive Into A Decadent Date Night

Oscars Restaurant 

Whether you’re still sussing out that Tinder hottie, wanting to treat your significant other or embarking on a foodie date with your mates, Oscars Restaurant has you covered. Head to Currambine for an elegant evening of Italian-influenced eats in their alfresco-style courtyard. 

To start, we suggest sharing a plate of marinated feta and olives and a well-deserved bowl of arancini with gooey mozarella and parmesan—what’s more romantic than a cheese pull? Follow this with a hearty main highlight like vegetarian gnocchi with courgette, pumpkin and Napoli sauce or a classic Porterhouse steak with crunchy fries and salad. Better yet, you can chow this two-course meal down with a glass of house wine or bubbles at up to 52 per cent off—leaving more coin for dessert. Affogato anyone?   

Catch The Latest Flicks

Ace Cinemas 

Nothing quite beats settling into a large, comfy theatre seat, armed with chocolate snacks and buttery popcorn for a few hours of blockbuster bliss. We’re particularly amped for soon-to-be-released Oscar-buzzing hits like The Joker starring Robert De Niro and Joaquin Phoenix, and Hustlers, starring Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B. 

If hitting the movies is on your spring wish list, be sure to head to Ace Cinemas for unbeatable ticket prices. Or if a more boujee movie moment is more up your alley, don’t pass on nabbing Gold Lounge tickets at 16 per cent off, thanks to Scoopon. In our opinion, it’s never a bad time to treat yourself.
