Summer is coming and bringing with it a slew of fun activities for you and your family. Enjoying the warmer weather shouldn’t have to break the bank, so we have pulled together the best free (or low cost) things for you to do while the sun is shining.

  1. Visit the WA Museum Boola Bardip

Home of history, science and culture, the WA Museum is full of interactive exhibits, displays and demonstrations. For just $15 per adult, you can spend the day perusing multi-storey complex, learning about WA’s history, or participating in one of the many specialty tours on offer.

Visit the museum website for more information.

  1. Enjoy a cultural tour around the Swan River

Let the guides at Warrang Bridil take you on a journey around the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) on one of their Aboriginal Cultural Tours.

Learn about the importance of language, values, relationships, and knowledge to the Nyoongar Nation, and hear stories of how the Nyoongar people lived in a functional community with value, purpose and leadership pre-colonisation.

To find out more, visit the Warrang Bridal website.

  1. Immerse yourself in nature

Here in WA, we have an abundance of beautiful landscapes right on our doorstep. Take advantage of the natural beauty that is Western Australia and visit some of our most famous sites, such as the Pinnacles, Wave Rock, Karijini National Park, and Cottesloe Beach.

  1. Visit Kings Park

More than just a park, Kings Park and Botanic Garden offers a variety of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you’d like to snag a picture of our famous city skyline, visit the Rio Tinto Naturescape, visit the State War Memorial, or climb the DNA tower, there’s something for absolutely everyone.

  1. Perth Observatory

The Perth Observatory, located around 25km east of the CBD, houses some of the state’s most impressive telescopes, alongside a museum filled with artefacts and images from the observatory’s first establishment in 1896.

Book in for a Night Sky tour and see the stars in a way you’ve never seen them before. For more information, visit the website here.

  1. Stop and smell the roses at Araluen

The Araluen Botanic Park is home to 14 hectares of beauty. Nestled in the Perth Hills, the park is a stunning garden getaway, that you can visit for just $12 per adult.

However you choose to spend your time this summer, we hope you have a wonderful time in the sunshine.
