The Perth Walkabout Monthly Wrap is published at the start of each month to provide a snapshot of articles that hit the headlines in the last 4 weeks.
Here is Perth Walkabout's Monthly Wrap for the month of February:
My partner and I headed out to the Perth Fringe Festival on Thursday night to check out Xavier Toby's comedy act, titled White Trash. With its focus on racism amongst ourselves, our family and friends, and Australia as a whole, I was interested to see how Xavier would tackle this touchy topic while still attempting to get a laugh from the audience.
My partner asked me to accompany her to watch the premiere of Elles at Luna Cinemas. I hadn't got around to reading the synopsis of the film beforehand, so I started watching with no idea of what was to come other than my partner's brief comment that it involved a female journalist and was rated R due to sex scenes.
Lovers of art in Perth are in for a treat when the CONTINUUM art exhibition opens its doors on Friday, 15 February at the Alcoa Mandurah Art Gallery.
CONTINUUM is the latest solo art exhibition by Perth based artist Jennifer Sadler, which features drawings and paintings that focus on the coastal plains of the south west of Western Australia.
Perth is a unique city to visit on Valentine's Day. There are a variety of activities to take part in, hotels to stay at, and restaurants to dine at to celebrate the romantic day with your special someone.
The Perth Holiday and Travel Expo was held on the 16th and 17th February 2013 at Crown Perth.
Stay tuned for next year’s event to be held sometime in early 2014.
Op shopping in Perth and across Australia is having an amazing resurgence of late.
Whilst each op shopper will have his or her own style of shopping, there are a few key rules I would suggest you bear in mind when you start your own thrifting adventures.
Last night my partner and I were fortunate enough to snag a couple of seats for Circus Ronaldo's performance of La Cucina dell'Arte as part of the Perth Festival for 2013. The shows have been selling out, so we weren't surprised to find a large mass of people milling around before the show opened in Russell Square at 8pm. While waiting for the show to begin, the crowd was serenaded by a busking didgeridoo player, whose stone-age sound contrasted nicely with the Renaissance style art of the Circus Ronaldo billboarding.
With our beach culture in Perth, swimming is a popular activity for most of us, whether it is at our local pool, the Swan River or the ocean. I got together with Dominique Pratt, TV presenter for the Home in WA lifestyle program, to chat about her swimming career and life in Perth over a cup of tea, thus combining two of Dominique's favorite passions - swimming and tea!
Stay tuned to Perth Walkabout to explore our beautiful city of Perth.
