Eight Activities To Do This Weekend (That’ll Cost You Less Than Fifty Dollarydoos)
This time of year, we are just itching to get out and have an adventure… But approaching the festive season, we wouldn’t mind saving a penny or two.
To help you explore the city without breaking the bank, a huge selection of local businesses have teamed up with Destination Perth, offering heaps of experiences and activities around Perth for under $50.
This boutique winery is nestled in the picturesque Swan Valley – which comes alive in spring with lush greenery. Talijancich Wines’ cellar door is the perfect way to enjoy the spring sunshine while sampling a selection of their award-winning fortified wines and liqueurs – along with a cheeky cheese board, it’ll only set you back $45.
A classic road trip destination requires an absolutely classic deal! Miami Bakehouse (AKA WA’s most awarded bakery) will sort you out next time you’re on the road with a feast for under $50 – four classic steak pies, four regular size coffees and four hand-made bikkies. Now that’s worth a drive!
Two Feet & a Heartbeat
Get to know the city like never before with an award-winning guided tour from Two Feet & a Heartbeat. Explore the city’s hidden gems and quirky corners with the Perth Arcades and Laneways tour, or discover the best of Perth’s street art and cultural landmarks while sipping on the city’s best coffee with the Coffee Culture and Art tour – both tours are just $50 per person.
Fancy something a little stronger? For $50, the crew at Dingo Brewery will show you the ins and outs of how to brew your own craft beer, becoming a master brewer for a day – plus, you’ll be rewarded with a tasting paddle, grazing board and take home a six pack after all your hard work!
Mandurah Boat Hire
Take in the spring sunshine with an afternoon cruising through Mandurah’s canals! The crew at Mandurah Boat Hire will give you a run through on everything you need to know to operate the four-person dinghy when you book an hour’s hire for just $50! You don’t even need a skipper’s ticket.
Vines Mini Golf
Another great way to enjoy the great outdoors, Novotel Vines Resort Swan Valley is offering 18 holes of mini golf for two for $50. Show off your skills across the beautifully landscaped course and follow it up with your choice of pizza to share and a house wine, beer or softie to wash it down – all included in your $50 ticket!
Get up close and personal with AQWA’s giant sharks, stingrays and turtles in their custom glass bottom boat! Gliding above Australia’s biggest aquarium, you’ll be able to get a birds-eye view of the resident marine life, with expert commentary from Ocean Guides. For $50 per adult, you’ll be able to enjoy this unique experience, as well as lunch at the AQWA Cafe, all-day entry to AQWA’s 45 stunning exhibits and even four hours of free parking.
Realmz Escape Game
Put your noggin’ to work with one of the thrilling escape rooms at Realmz. These immersive experiences – only $45 per person – will challenge you to thwart evil plans, uncover an ancient pharaoh’s tomb or restore a starship’s power before you crash into an asteroid field!
Perth Coastal Explorer
No car? No worries! Jump aboard the Perth Coastal Explorer for under $50 and do just that: journey from the city to the sea, spending the day in Scarborough and Hillarys before getting dropped back in the CBD – taking in the views from the open top bus and without spending a second worrying about parking.
