The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on and at this point, there are only two states of being: we’re either freaking out or cutting loose. Regardless of your approach, this week has a few things in store that could be just what you need.
Capitalise on maximum Christmas cheer and merriment with a variety of Christmas-themed experiences and adventures to be had around the city, or kick into the Christmas-shopping action at some of Perth’s best artisan markets and of course, round it all out with a drink or two.
Here are 5 awesome things to do this week in Perth.
City Of Perth Christmas Lights Trail | Monday to Thursday
Relive the joy of walking the streets to check out your neighbourhood’s Christmas lights this week with the City of Perth’s Christmas Lights Trail, a collection of 18 mesmerising light installations bringing Christmas cheer to our CBD. There are two mapped-out routes to take, or you can just go your own way. No matter what, you’re guaranteed fun animated light shows, festive street decorations and lively projections.
Christmas Maze At Elizabeth Quay | Monday to Thursday
Adding to the much-needed dose of Christmas spirit this week is the Christmas Maze set up at Elizabeth Quay, which is totally free to enter and could land you a special Christmas prize. Santa’s reindeers have wandered off into the maze and it’s your job to find them. You could almost say, it’s your job to save Christmas. No pressure.
Christmas in the QV1 Plaza With Perth Makers Market | Tuesday to Thursday
Perth’s premier artisan market-runners are teaming up with the crew at QV1 Plaza to put on this Christmas bonanza for city slickers across three huge days this week. Running Tuesday to Thursday smack-bang in everyone’s lunch break (11am – 3pm), you’ll have plenty of time to shop for presents and eat your lunch right on St George’s Terrace.
Monday 10 December
Christmas At Inglewood Night Market
On top of the regular awesomeness that you’ll find at this long-running street market, Christmas at Inglewood Night Market is doubling down on the Christmas inspiration this week (and every week leading up to Christmas) and bringing you a bunch of artisan stalls and makers offering something for everyone in the fam. Get down to tick those boxes with sustainability in mind, and be sure to stuff your face with the excellent food offering there while you’re at it.
Thursday 13 December
If you haven’t heard yet, The Dock is returning this week and it’s the perfect way to wind down the week (yep, we do that on Thursdays in December). Expect refreshing beverages of the hoppy variety and a good selection of eats to round things out. The Dock won’t be anchored long, so be sure to make the most of the fun while it lasts.
