Get ready to party, Perth! Australia Day gives us an excuse to start the weekend early, but we have a jam-packed week of DJs, throwback dance parties, roller clubs and theatre, so there’s no need to wait until Thursday to start celebrating.
Here are five awesome things to do in Perth this week.
Urban Roller Club at Sorrento Quay Boardwalk Amphitheatre
A 70’s style skating rink by the sea? We can’t think of anything better! Grab your leotard and legwarmers and get ready to perform a skating rendition of dirty dancing (or just fall over with your friends, we guarantee you'll have fun either way!) There will be plenty of tunes all night long, plus you get a discount if you bring your bestie. Get more details here.
Tuesday 24 January
Fresh and Fragrant Vietnamese At Matters of Taste
The only thing more phresh than your Hottest 100 votes, Vietnamese food is a treat for your taste buds. Impress your friends with some exotic Pho Bo, chicken and coconut rice and Vietnamese coffee (that coffee and condensed milk combo is genius!) Plus, the guys at Matters of Taste will tell you where to buy all those fancy Asian ingredients you don’t know how to pronounce. Spaces are limited so grab your fellow Masterchef addict and buy tix here.
Tuesday 24 And Wednesday 25 January
aMoment Caravan At the Blue Room Theatre
Feeling adventurous? Dare to climb into the caravan art experience outside Blue Room Theatre. Put on headphones and be transported to another universe. It kicks off at 5pm so you'll have plenty of time to grab a bite in Northbridge after. Find out more about this free experience here.
Wednesday 25 January
Habitat Garden Party At Elizabeth Quay
Elizabeth Quay will be transformed into a magical oasis filled with funky tunes, gourmet food trucks, pop up bars and an awesome DJ line-up including Hernan Cattaneo and ANNA. You don’t have work the next day (unless you're really unlucky) so you can kick-on at the Geisha after party. Grab your tix here before they sell out.
Nineties to Noughties At The Bird
Get your booties down to The Bird and get ready to shimmy, shake and sing to your fave tracks from the nineties and noughties. Gather up your mates and chuck on your best n’sync or Backstreet Boy getup 'cos there are prizes for best dressed. Get more info on the Facebook page.
