Another school year has ended and the busy holiday season will be approaching soon, but before you get swept away by all the planning and preparation, why not spend some time with your family on a day out into the city of Perth?
But no stress! We are here to give you a list of easy, must-do activities in Perth during the school holidays.
For the Best Staycation Ever!
Want a vacation away from home but don’t want to travel far? Why not have a staycation in the Holiday Inn in Perth! This hotel is the number one family-orientated hotel in Perth. When staying in the inn you will not only have excellent service and rooms, but included with your stay you’ll be able to use many of the Holiday Inn’s exclusive offers for activities around Perth.
Never Stop Learning
School might be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop learning! Give Scitech a visit this school holiday for a wonderfully educational day or try some of the great historical tours through Perth! Or if you are more into a cultural mood the Art Gallery of WA. With their ever-changing exhibitions, you’ll never see the same thing twice! Not only does Scitech have cool exhibitions on science and technology, it is also the home of a state of the art Planetarium. Buy a ticket at the museum, or order them online, and you’ll experience space in a whole new way!
Nostalgia with a Side of History
Is your family keen to learn and even keener to play? Visit The Nostalgia Box in Northbridge, Australia’s one and only video game console museum, and it’s only a 10 minute walk away from the Perth train station!
With a collection of over 100 video game consoles, you will get to see the start and growth of video games of the past 50 years! But the consoles aren’t just to be looked at; with 12 retro consoles and 5 arcade machines always available to play, you will get to relive your old memories and create some brand new ones with your loved ones!
A Day in Northbridge
Spend the day exploring Northbridge. Get some fresh gelato, pick up a bubble tea or visit some of the great 2nd hand shops along William Street. Not only can you find some amazing snacks and drinks, Northbridge also offers some of the best Asian cuisine you can find in Perth and after a long hot day you might want to just settle down and relax. The Rooftop Cinema has got you and your family covered! With its relaxed atmosphere and comfortable bean bags, it’s a perfect location to end your day and just enjoy a nice movie as the sun is setting.
Of course, Perth always has something amazing going on, especially during the school holidays! For more cool suggestions check out www.visitperth.com.au
