Winter short stays in Perth WA are great for a number of reasons. Not only are you in low season with excellent accommodation rates everywhere, but there’s stacks to do even during the most blustery and wild Winter weather that Perth can throw at you!
In the day time, take yourself off to Cottelsoe beach. Even when it’s windy and raining this beach is a wonderful destination to experience nature. Don your warmest wooly item and walk along the beach from Cott to North Cott. While September and October are traditionally the whale watching months for the southward migration of humpback whales, you’re still likely to see some action on the water in August with lots of birds and fish about. Find a window side table in Barchetta in North Cott to watch the ocean for a while over a coffee or mediterranean inspired lunch.
Guided walks through the marvellous Kings Park Botanical Gardens in Winter are truly wonderful too. Over your hour and a half tour listen to stories about Kings Park from the earliest times while you enjoy exotic trees, native flora and panoramic views of the city.
Dubbed as a world class theatre event not to be missed is “The curious incident of the dog in the night-time”, showing at His Majesty’s 8-19 August. The show has won 5 Tony Awards and 7 Olivier awards and from all accounts will be a sell out season in Perth.
Grab some great recipes and ideas and sample delicious morsels from international and local exhibitors during the Good food and wine show from 24 – 26 August. Watch the best local and interstate chefs and restaurateurs on stage with their favourite cooking buddy, as they cook up a storm live on the Princess Cruises Theatre stage! The event is being held again this year at the Perth Convention Centre.
Pick a date between now and the 29th of September for an unusual and eclectic cinema experience at Girls School Cinema. Don’t be deceived by the name!
