5 Ways to Get Warm in Perth City This Winter

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t find your happy place in Perth. 

Winter has arrived, bringing cool nights, crisp mornings and a desire to cosy up on the couch. But rather than reach for the remote this winter, why not warm up by getting out and about instead? Here are five great ways to stay sustainably warm this winter, while making the most of your happy Perth lifestyle.

1. Rediscover Perth City

Pounding the pavement is a great way to get warm this winter. Why not take in the many sights, sounds, tastes and tales of Perth City and Northbridge? If you’re in need of inspiration, Perth’s Two Feet and a Heartbeat tours help visitors and residents get off the beaten track and fall in love with the city all over again.

2. Curl up with (someone else’s) book

If you enjoy reading, what better way to pass wintery weekends than to grab a good book and curl up in a comfy chair at the State Library of Western Australia? The State Library also offers a diverse calendar of events and activities including films, presentations, exhibitions, guided tours, music celebrations, family history and more. Check out their full calendar of events.

3. Embrace a little culture

Perth’s revitalised cultural district provides an endless supply of entertainment. With something happening day and night, both midweek and on weekends, wander down and you’re bound to find something you like.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s coming up:

  • From July, the Art Gallery of WA (AGWA) will feature the works of the 14 finalists in the exhibition of the 2015 WA Indigenous Art Awards. Throughout winter AGWA also presents ‘WA Focus’ - a free exhibition celebrating the work of WA Artists. The exhibition kicks off with works by brothers and contemporary artists Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Abdul Abdullah.
  • From early June the WA Museum will feature Remember Me: The Lost Diggers of Vignacourt - the story of an enterprising First World War portrait photographer. During July the winners of the 2015 World Press Photo annual contest will also be on display. The exhibit features work from close to 100,000 images submitted by press photographers, photojournalists and documentary photographers worldwide.

4. Get your blood pumping

If you want to warm up from the inside, consider Perth your winter wonderland fitness playground. Perth offers no shortage of leisure facilities, ranging from the well-equipped Beatty Park and Loftus Recreational Centres through to Jacob’s Ladder, a grueling 242-step workout on the edge of Kings Park. 

5. Eat, drink and be merry

So long as you burn the occasional calorie, winter is perfect for enjoying healthy, heart-warming good food. If you’re lucky enough to live near the city, your every culinary whim is catered for. Why not warm up with some spicy noodles in China Town, grab a quick burger in Leederville, take in authentic Greek meze at Brika, or cosy up for some silver service at one of Perth’s many fine dining establishments?
