Get outside and make the most of the clear weather while it’s still here with carnivals, markets, meditation and more—here are the best things to do in Perth this weekend.
Thursday 6 August
Yin, Magical Elixir And Live Music
Relax and honour your eternal flame with Resonate’s night of soft activation and meditation. Begin your evening with an alcoholic or non-alcoholic magical elixir before being guided through gentle yin postures and meditation—to top it all off, Rob will be providing some improvised ambient background music.
Bombay Sapphire x Maximillian Malone Sip & Learn
Get your hands on a bottle of Bombay Sapphire and crank up Zoom at 7pm on Thursday to join Melbourne artist Maximillian Malone in creating some awesome collages using cutouts from old magazines and books. While this sip and learn session might not turn you into the next Banksy or da Vinci, it sure is worth a shot.

This weekend, get ready to fill your belly with mouthwatering Asian eats at Miss Chow’s bottomless boozy lunch. From Friday to Sunday for just $49, you’ll be able to take your pick from options such as BBQ pork buns, chop chop chicken, sweet and sour pork and more, plus free-flowing tea, wines, coffee, beers and bubbles—make sure you secure your spot here.
