Get outdoors at Barna Mia Nocturnal Wildlife Experience and Mullaloo Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at New Norcia Museum & Art Gallery and Upper Reach Winery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Perth: Fremantle (South Beach Recreation Reserve, Bather's Beach, & more), Rockingham (Rockingham Beach & Point Peron) and GDC Observatory - Gingin (in Gingin). On the 25th (Thu), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. Make the 8th (Wed) an awe-inspiring day at Lane Pool Reserve. There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, kick back and relax at Trigg Beach, choose your vessel at Mandurah Boat & Bike Hire, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Yanchep Lagoon Beach.
