It feels like everyone goes away for the annual four day break, but why would you when there is so much fun stuff happening in Perth over Easter? And it’s not all about the kiddies – here are some things for the adults to enjoy.

All weekend: 19 – 22 April

While this is technically a family event, it is good fun for all ages – – -> PLUS there are pop-up bars on the street for when you need to kick back with an adult refreshment. The main streets in the centre of Freo are transformed into an open-air street theatre featuring buskers from around the world. 

Good Friday: 19 April

Good Friday Raceday @ Ascot

The conclusion of the 2019 Autumn Racing Carnival is celebrated well with a free entry raceday on Good Friday. Enjoy live music, visit the bars and eat too much from their large selection of food trucks.

West Coast Eagles v Port Adelaide

Does it even need to be said that there is a footy game on? In a first for Perth, Optus Stadium and The Camfield are both able to serve drinks on Good Friday without the purchase of a meal.
