Think there’s something to do in Perth?
Those happenin’ cats at PerthNow have assembled all of the evidence that Perth isn’t a boring, atavistic hellhole:
FOR all those that call Perth ‘Dullsville’, maybe you’re just not aware of all the events happening around the city.
Maybe you’re just not aware of all of the events, but PerthNow is aware of all the events! What follows is an extensive list of all them. There’s so much happening, folks! I couldn’t assemble the whole list here, because it goes on 4 EVA, but here’s a taste:
Tuesday, In One Act
Until Sat 5 Sep, The Blue Room Studio, 8.30pm
This intimate, absurdist play takes you to a world where astronauts carry briefcases and cowboys feed pigeons. A delicate flux between poetry, satire and unpretentious honesty.
A world where cowboys feed pigeons? Get right outta town!
Spring Friday Night Shopping at Harbour Town
Fri 4, 11, 18 & 25 Sep, Harbour Town, 6pm to 9pm
Shop for your spring essentials at over 100 brand direct outlets while soaking up the sounds of jazz trios, contemporary crooners and the cool sounds of the calypso cats.
Factory direct Elwood t-shirts and jazz. A match made in Huhvean.
Catholic Arts Carnevale
Wed 9 Sep, Forrest Place, 9am
See a showcase of talent from Catholic primary and secondary schools. Activities include interactive displays, music and dance performances.
When I Grow Up
Sun 6 Sep, Fashion Central, Forrest Place, 10am
Celebrate Father’s Day with your dad at Perth Fashion Central as gorgeous kids and their fashionable dads model the latest collections from Forrest Chase retailers.
Replace the word “gorgeous” with “spoilt” and the word “fashionable” with “emasculated”. Oh, and the word “model” with “whore”.
After this “event”, shit somehow gets even duller:
City of Perth Library
Hay Street, Weekdays 9am to 6pm and Sat 9am to 12pm
A variety of activities including board games for seniors, free internet course for beginners, preschool story time and more.
More like “bored games”, am I right?
Home to a colony of Western Grey kangaroos, found in the southern enclosure of the island.
“Kangaroos” is an event now.
Scitech and Horizon the Planetarium
City West Complex, West Perth
Experience the fun of science with interactive exhibitions and live theatre demonstrations.
Remember nothing, except that the plane-arium is the best thing that you’ve ever known.
State Library of Western Australia
Perth Cultural Centre
Join in at a variety of events, research online, search for your favourite book or hold your meeting or function at the library.
Dullsville? Our TWO libraries suggest otherwise!
Wheel of Perth
Perth Foreshore, Riverside Drive
Experience stunning and panoramic views of the city, Swan River and Kings Park during the 12 minute ride.
Well, that’s 12 minutes of my weekend scheduled.
The Bell Tower, Home of the Swan Bells
Barrack Square, 10am to 3.45pm
Listen to the Bells of St Martin’s chime, enjoy the view from the viewing platform and wander through the exhibitions.
There are three things to do at the Bell Tower, Home of the Swan Bells!
