Spring has sprung, which means the September school holidays are just around the corner. Here’s the round-up of Perth’s best events for the whole family.
Perth’s biggest community event is back again this year, bringing its trademark mix of fun and food to Claremont Showgrounds throughout the last week of September. See the famous diving pigs launch themselves into the water, try your hand at milking a cow, take a trip down sideshow alley and grab a hotdog before settling in to watch the fireworks bloom overhead.
The State Library has the perfect event for young adventurers these school holidays. This exhibition, based on the award-winning picture book of the same name, features original illustrations, travel diaries and sketches from the author’s real life journey all the way from Wave Rock to Roebuck Bay. It’s a free, fun way to learn about the beauty and diversity of Western Australia and inspire little ones to start documenting their own holidays.
This spectacular celebration of Western Australia’s stunning wildflowers runs all September long. As well as walks, talks and art installations, there are a stack of family activities and live music every Sunday. Best of all, most events are free.
The crime scene is a zoo, a security guard has been shot and a rare white rhino has been stolen. If you’ve got a little detective in your family, this one is for you. Pick up your crime file at the door, follow the clues and get a helping hand with footprints, DNA and finger printing. How long will it take you to solve the mystery?
Ideal for ages 12 and up, this festival brings together the best theatre, dance, music, and visual arts from all around the world. It takes place at a number of different venues across the city from September 30 to October 9, so check the program to find out what’s on and what tickles your fancy.
