Spring is about to be sprung and the whole of Perth is pretty much walking on sunshine. So it’s time to ditch that Netflix addiction, put the pizza and red wine away and take life outdoors!
Here are Perth’s best outdoor activities for spring.
Snorkelling At Mettam’s Pool
Yes ok we know it’s still pretty chilly, so maybe don a wetsuit and head to Mettam’s pool for a morning of snorkelling. The water is beautiful, the reef is amazing and there are a ton of different fish to spot.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
No doubt one of your friends owns a SUP that they never use so give them a call and borrow it. If you really can’t find one then head down to Fun’s Back Surf in Cottesloe and hire one, then lug it across Marine Parade and SUP your way down the coast.
Picnic At Kings Park
Dust off your picnic blanket, pack a feast and go and enjoy the sunshine in Kings Park. Check out this handy guide for all the best places to relax in Kings Park.
Head To Rottnest
Beat the summer crowds and head to Rottnest now. Keep an eye on the weather and book a ferry ticket as soon as you spot a sunny weekend. Then grab a bike and cycle your way around the island.
Get Your Bike Out And Go For A Ride
Now that the rain is coming to an end you have no more excuses to leave your bike sitting in the corner. So jump back on and hit up one of these bike trails.
Go For A Hike
Make the most of the sunshine without the blistering 40 degree days and get a few walks in. How about the Kitty’s Gorge Trail followed by a dip at Serpentine Dam? Or head to the Swan Valley and get the Bells Rapid Walk Trail done.
Head To The Swan Valley
And while we’re on the subject of the Swan Valley… You’ve surely earnt lunch and few wine tastings after that walk right? Head to Sandalford for a nice lunch or Mandoon Estate for a more relaxed affair.
Go On A Roadtrip
Get some mates and a killer playlist and hit the road. Keep in mind that going north will bring you some warmer weather (it’s not exactly rocket science, is it?) so head to Lancelin or Cervantes and find somewhere to camp (and heed our advice). If you can’t get away for a night, just drive an hour up the coast, go for a dip, eat some food and come home.
Head To The Hills
Head to the hills and go for a walk before stopping for lunch at Core Cider. This place was made for sunny spring days!
Get Your Blues On In Bridgetown
The annual Blues at Bridgetown festival is hitting this little town from 11-13 November and it’s always a good weekend. Head to tent city and get your camp on for the weekend.
Or why not throw the best ever dinner party?
