Fun Things to Do After Settling Down in Perth

Whether you’re a lucky recipient of a Perth first home buyers’ grant, or are just checking the place out first while staying with relatives, there are loads of activities to enjoy in Perth, and many won’t cost anything!

Go snorkelling in Shoalwater Marine Park
Jump into the warm waters with WA’s largest colony of fairy penguins, sea lions, dolphins, and more. The major underwater attraction is the marine wreck and seagrass meadows where hundreds of marine species are waiting to welcome you.

Picnic in Kings Park and Botanic Garden
Kings Park is one of the largest inner-city parks in the world that easily dwarfs New York City’s Central Park. That’s at least 400 hectares of lush greenery and landscaped gardens. You’ll be swamped by some 1,700 unique native spring wildflower species.

Tap into your inner culture vulture
If indulging in the arts is more your thing, make your way to WA’s Cultural Centre, where you’ll find the Museum, Art Gallery, and Library of Western Australia as well as the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Entrance to all venues is free of charge.

Check out what’s popping up in Perth
Perth is a virtual labyrinth of urban art, street food, and pop-up stalls, so you’re sure to come across something fascinating. Forrest Place is host to many free festivals and musical performances while the Northbridge Piazza is a venue for public exhibits, films, and performances.

There’s still more to Perth than we can list here so take your sweet time to get acquainted with the place and your new home.
