A Perth-fect Summer
As the long summer days stretch out before us, we have compiled a list of the best things to do around Perth. Prepare for some sun-drenched afternoons filled with good music, delicious food and entertainment for the whole family.
Pompeii in Perth
Discover the remains of one of history’s most famous natural disasters. In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum under huge waves of volcanic ash and debris. When the area was excavated 1700 years later, researchers were astounded that many of the buildings and objects remained intact. Explore one of the world's most engrossing archaeological experiences and glimpse into the success of the Roman Empire at the time of the eruption.
Afternoon Tunes in the Park
Sunday Music is Freemantle Arts Centre’s popular summer concert series, ideal for families and friends looking to boogie the afternoon away. Enjoy free performances by leading local and touring acts from every Sunday until March.
A Life in Pictures
This unique exhibition at the Art Gallery of Western Australia has been curated in collaboration with Heath Ledger’s family and close friends. From his teenage years to his final role in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009), the exhibition celebrates his illustrious career with an intimate display of costumes, journals and images.
Tennis is in the Air
Roger Federer, 19-time Grand Slam Champion is returning for the 30th anniversary of the Hopman Cup. Don’t miss out on seeing one of the world's greatest tennis stars take to the stage at Perth Arena from December 30 to January 6.
Fit for a King

Every Friday night during summer, Forests Place will be serving up some incredible street food from around the world plus plenty of entertainment to keep you dancing in the twilight.
All of Perth’s a Stage

All Hail Henry
