If you were one of the few unlucky people that didn’t manage to get your hands on a dirty cheap flight to Europe and you’re stuck in Perth this Winter, don’t start your Netflix subscription just yet. For a small state, we sure do pack a lot in, so grab your friends (the one’s who didn’t jet off to Paris) and get out of the house this Winter (while there’s still some sun).
Grab your skates, scarves and skivvies, because you’re about to hit the ice. Our very own Lizzy Quay will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland this July. Not only will there be an open air ice-skating rink and an ice slide, this attraction is also said to have falling snow, so you can finally build a snowman.
In case you missed it last year, The Good Food & Wine Show is gracing Perth with its presence once again.
