Best free things to do in Perth?

I'm going to be in Perth next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!

If you can afford it, look at heading down south to the Margaret river wine region. It can be hard though without your own car. Otherwise definitely head down to Cottesloe grab some fish and chips and watch the sunset. If your feeling very keen little creatures brewery sometimes has bikes you can use for free if your a customer. Buy a beer grab the bike and go riding along the coast up to Cottesloe around sunset.  

If you want a beach that isn't crowded jump on the Fremantle line and get off at North Fremantle. The. Head across to Leighton Beach and spend the afternoon with some snacks and a good book.

Spending a day at any beach is the best in perth. Cottesloe and Scarborough Beach  are the best with awesome waves, great shopping close by and Free BBQ's to cook up a sausage and steak.

Go for a wander through Fremantle and the Fremantle Markets. Check out Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach, and take a walk through Sir James Mitchell Park along the foreshore of the Swan River in the evening and watch the city light up.


Kings Park and Botanic Garden is in the middle of the city and has fantastic views over the river and CBD especially at night, and Araluen Botanic Park is on the outskirts of Perth and a good spot for a picnic.

Outdoor Activities:

Munda Biddi Trail is a cycle trail that runs from Perth to Albany. Hire a Bike and just do a section for a day in the hills through the forest. The Bibbulmun Track is a hiking track that takes a similar route to the Munda Biddi from Perth to Albany that can also be done in small sections. There are also lots of bike paths and walking paths along either side of the Swan River.

Art and Museums:

Western Australian Museum - Perth and the Art Gallery of Western Australia are both located in the CBD, and more and more street art is starting to pop up throughout Perth and Northbridge. There are also smaller galleries scattered throughout Perth, such as Linton & Kay Galleries.


For inexpensive dining, visit Annalakshmi Restaurant. It is an Indian Vegetarian restaurant that works on a donation system, so you pay what you can afford. It is also in a great location on the CBD side of the Swan River.
