So while the great Perth storm earlier this week managed to squeeze a bit of rain out before returning to normal beautiful Autumn programming our friends in the north west weren’t so lucky, and the destruction around Kalbarri in particular has been heartbreaking to see.
We hope you enjoy all Perth has to offer events-wise this week, and if you’ve got some spare change maybe consider throwing it towards the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief, which was just opened up to help those impacted by ex-tropical cyclone Seroja – DONATE HERE.
