Now that spring is finally here, it’s time to get outdoors. Here’s a few ideas:

Blossom Season

Orchard gates are being opened so we can all enjoy seeing trees in full bloom, from 9-13 September, from 9am to 4pm. The S&R Orchard is in Walliston in the Perth Hills. It offers fresh country air, the fragrance of various blossoms and the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a picnic with the family. A range of activities will be offered, including a bouncy castle, raffles and an ice cream truck. Fresh fruit and vegetables will also be available. There’s more info here. Tickets at the gate: Adults $10, concessions $5.

Wildcats and Perth Lynx Fan Day 

On Sunday 17 September, from 11am to 2pm, two of Perth’s professional basketball teams, Perth Wildcats and Perth Lynx, will be at Elizabeth Quay for an all ages meet and greet. The family friendly environment will provide children, coaches and overall fans of the teams with an opportunity to collaborate. It will give fans and others the opportunity to interact among the players, as well as the chance to enjoy a day out, with rides and assorted foods for offer.

Listen Out Music Festival 

The Listen Out (18+) music festival is kicking off the festival season. More than 19 well renowned acts will be performing at the Western Parklands on Sunday 24 September. The first release of tickets sold out within hours and now the final release tickets are available for $152

Dale Barnard from Fuzzy Events told ECU Daily: “Honestly, I can’t pinpoint a day where I have worked any harder than I do at Listen Out and a few of the other music festivals. I’m really lucky to have been able to get paid while listening to great music at the same time, even though it’s from a distance. Every year the crowd is bigger and the line-up is better, so we are all excited to see what 2017 Listen Out has in store.”

Perth festival-goer Evelyn Dalton said: “It’s about the experience and I think that is what everyone goes home with at the end of the day. It’s like going to a concert, only there you get to see a few acts but we are blessed enough to get to see multiple acts. I’m looking forward to a great day with even better people and an unforgettable atmosphere.”
