It’s time to step outside the everyday and into the city of light.

This week we see the recommencement of Virgin Australia’s seasonal non-stop flights to Perth. To celebrate, we wanted to share the unmissable line-up of events and activities happening over the Western summer. Think entertainment, food, shopping and more. Let’s jump in!

Picnics in the Square

Every Friday across November, Cathedral Square offers a unique picnic experience.

Enjoy live performances from the likes of Perth International Jazz Festival and indulge in complimentary tastings from Cathedral Square's finest providers. All of this is paired with a gourmet pre-prepared lunch and is only $49 for two people.

Go underground for a drink (or two!)

It’s time to scratch beneath the surface and discover Perth’s best underground playgrounds.

Favourites include Toots, Joe’s Juice Joint, Pooles Temple, Caballito’s Bar, Alabama Song, Sneaky Tony’s and Varnish on King.

Transport yourself back in time and embrace the quirky speakeasy vibes.

Marvel at the Christmas Light Trail

Christmas is coming to town!

Each year the City of Perth lights up for 46 summer evenings to showcase 35 unique large-scale light installations. The spectacle of light features traditional Christmas icons, Aussie animals and immersive projections on historic buildings. You will also discover festive entertainment and performances throughout the city every Friday and Saturday night.

Shop the Forrest Chase

There’s nothing better than a little retail therapy while on holiday. So delve into Perth’s newest shopping precinct - Forrest Chase.
