13 November, 2018 The sun’s out! Time to enjoy the weather with Perth’s top outdoor activities.
Now that the sun has decided to make an appearance in Perth, the weather looks to be taking a turn for the better, and that means it’s time to put your favourite TV show on pause and get outside.
With plenty of outdoor activities to do while the weather is at its best, there’s no excuse to keep the Netflix binge going. We’ve put together some of Perth’s best outdoor offerings to make your sunny season enjoyable, fun and exciting. Get out, get some vitamin D and experience Perth’s lovely outdoors with these activities!
Go for a bike ride
A wonderful way to explore Perth’s scenery whilst soaking up some of the sun. There are many brilliant cycle paths and trails scattered across the metro area all offering a different taste of Perth. If you live near the ocean, then a simple ‘coasty’ down West Coast Highway is one of the best ways to experience Perth’s great coastline. Further afield there’s the Swan Valley Heritage Trail, and right in the centre of the city a ride through Kings Park is the perfect way to take in the breathtaking views.
If it’s time for your push bike to get a modern upgrade, the experts at Solar Bike can transform your bicycle into a state of the art solar powered machine. Harness the power of the sun to experience Perth’s cycle paths with ease.
Snorkelling at Perth’s best beaches
Is there a better way to enjoy marine life than immersing yourself in WA’s exquisite waters? There’s certainly no shortage of snorkeling hot spots in Perth, and you only need to take a drive along the coast to find one.
Mettam’s Pool in North Beach provides beautifully calm waters with a great variety of fish. If you head further north of Perth you’ll find Burns Beach which has a large area of sheltered reef, or if you’re prepared to travel, any one of Rottnest Island’s beaches is worth snorkeling.
Enjoy an outdoor BBQ
Why not take your cooking outside and enjoy a quality BBQ in the sun? There’s never been a better excuse to take the kitchen outside and entertain friends and family in the warmth of Perth’s Mediterranean climate.
With a quality BBQ from The Outdoor Chef it’s effortless to prepare the perfect steak where ever you want. As Perth’s BBQ specialist, they also create customised outdoor kitchen designs for all needs and budgets.
Get Road Trippin’
There’s nothing quite like turning up the tunes and hitting the road when the weather permits it. How about getting friends or family in the car and heading out of town? With great locations both north and south of Perth, you’ll find lovely spots such as Port Kennedy (south) or Yanchep (north) less than an hour away. If you’re up for a longer drive then 3 or so hours will get you down to the lovely Margaret River region, where winery’s, local attractions and beautiful scenery make it well worth the drive.
Be sure to get your car serviced by the professionals at Auto Masters before embarking on any long journey to ensure you stay safe.
