Summer in the City
As the temperature rises, things are heating up all over Perth.
Our endless summer doesn’t just happen by our dazzling beaches – our city is also alive with hotel pools, rooftop bars, city laneways and Derbarl Yerrigan, the mighty Swan River.
Whether it’s action and adventure you’re after, or just the chance to relax and while away a lazy summer afternoon, Perth city is the perfect destination.
Plan a city getaway this summer and discover bespoke dining experiences, that tour you’ve always wanted to do, some shopping in a new precinct, or just catch up for long summer drinks with friends. Book a Perth Festival experience then stay on to savour all the city has to offer.
MOUTH WATERING DELIGHTS
Culinary adventures in Perth are sizzling this summer. From yum cha to laneway bites, rooftop bars galore or fine dining events. Some of your city favourites have a new look (and new name) and there are always exciting new venues to visit. Uncover myriad dining and drinking options at the State Buildings including Post, Wine Merchant and Pooles Temple. Escape the concrete jungle to a rooftop garden sanctuary at Hadiqa, kick back with Sunday brunch at The Ritz-Carlton Perth or be one of the first to sample Pirate Life Perth.
EXPLORE YOUR CITY
Work up an appetite for entertainment with a city activity. Take a river cruise or explore the banks by Segway, waterbike or on a guided kayak. Rediscover icons at the Bell Tower and Perth Mint, be wowed by the brand-new WA Museum Boola Bardip and see Perth Cultural Centre in a new light as the Festival transforms it into City of Lights throughout February. Take a Warrang-Bridil Aboriginal cultural tour of Optus Stadium or Kings Park, and see the CBD and Northbridge on foot on a guided walking tour, where you’ll see nooks and crannies you never knew existed. And to really prepare for a night out, get started on a Wheels and Whiskey tour or a Bike and Brew tour.
TAKE A STAYCATION
Turn your night on the town into a night away. Perth has an incredible range of new hotels from apartment-style for the family to absolute waterfront and the ultimate in luxury. Spend sunny days by a rooftop pool with signature restaurants and unique entertainment offerings adorning the city’s plethora of accommodation. Alex Hotel, Frasers Suites and Duxton Hotel are some of places offering great rates for Perth Festival lovers.
Take an urban summer adventure and rediscover your city.
