You can spend the whole afternoon just gazing up at the sky or appreciating the raw beauty in this park.

Enjoy delicious cakes, finger sandwiches, and all of the tea and coffee you could ever need. You can choose to either host your high tea at home, or you can even head to one of Perth’s many high tea venues so that all of the work is done for you.

Then, all you need to do is show up!

Throw a Party

If you’re someone who enjoys tradition, throwing a party is a great idea. After all, parties are the perfect way to bring in a whole new year of life and celebrate you! You can choose to either have your party at home and hire a food truck, hire an area of a bar in the city or throughout Fremantle, hire a boat to cruise along the swan river, or even look at local surf/bowling clubs throughout the area.


Dinner with Loved Ones

To enjoy your birthday in a relaxed setting, a nice dinner out with your family and friends is perfect. There are many restaurants throughout Perth that have stunning private dining rooms for you to enjoy a private meal with your loved ones. You can choose something more lowkey or head somewhere fancy for a more luxurious meal.

Many restaurants also offer BYO and have set menus to keep control of the costs.


Take a trip of a lifetime on the Ghan or Indian Pacific 

Tick an item off your bucket list and celebrate your birthday at the same time! When you take a trip of a lifetime on either the Ghan or Indian Pacific, you can simply sit and enjoy the view. The Ghan goes from Darwin to Adelaide and has been operating for over 90 years.

The Indian Pacific runs between Perth and Sydney. It is said to be the most scenic of the two with many changes of scenery on the journey. It is a great way to check out Australia.

Hire a Holiday Home for the Weekend

Head out of the city and enjoy the stillness of the country. You can discover hundreds of private holiday homes down south that accommodate up to 12 people with the help of Private Properties. It is essentially a holiday without having to hop on a plane!

Down south offers so much tranquillity and peace. If you’re up for a quiet adventure, a holiday home is a great choice.

Visit Broome and the Kimberley

Sightseeing doesn’t get much better than this! Broome and the Kimberley are full of sights, delights, and wonderful locals. If breathtaking sights are up your alley, you have to visit this stunning part of our state. Enjoy the local beach in the glimmering sun but watch out for the scaley local crocs who might get a bit friendly!

Pack your singlets and thongs for this hot adventure of a lifetime.

Do Something Daring

No matter who you are, what age you’re turning, or where you’re from, doing something daring is one of the best ways to revisit your youth. If you’re someone who enjoys an adventure and some action-packed fun, indoor skydiving is a great option. You can float and dive as if you were actually jumping out of a plane in the sky!

It is just a lot safer for your peace of mind! You could also consider learning to fly a plane which is something that you’ll remember forever. If those options aren’t daring enough, consider learning to drive a super-fast race car!


Visit a Jazz Club

There are many amazing jazz clubs in Perth. If you are looking for somewhere to go and enjoy some smooth jazz, a little boogie, and some great hospitality, a jazz club could be the ideal place to be. Groove on down to the Ellington or check out the Jazz Cellar in Mount Hawthorn.


Head to the Swan Valley

Only 30 minutes out of the city, the Swan Valley is an absolutely stunning destination. You can spend this great milestone winding through different restaurants, wineries, and providores while enjoying all of the sites and delights the Swan Valley has to offer.

You can also hop on a bus charter throughout the valley to enjoy a bespoke wine tour! You can even arrive in the valley with a wine cruise along the swan river like the one we talk about below.

Go on a Swan River Cruise

A Swan River Wine Tour is one of the best laid-back ways to spend your birthday. You can take in the gorgeous sites the Swan River offers while also tasting some delicious wine. You can cruise past key sights of Perth such as Kings Park, the Bell Tower, and even the Swan Brewery.

From there, you get off the boat to enjoy the eateries and wineries in the area. You will need a booking to spend your Perth birthday on a cruise.


Crown Casino

Celebrate your birthday in style when you visit the action-packed crown casino. Whether you’re celebrating your 21st, 30th, or 60th here, it is guaranteed to impress. The action never stops at this legendary casino. You can enjoy 24/7 gaming in a luxurious, fun, and vibrant environment.

Better yet, once you’re done, you can head out and enjoy the great restaurants in and around Crown Metropol, like Epicurean or Atrium. Finish the night off by staying in either Crown Metropol or Crown Towers to spend your birthday in the finest way possible. See our guide to Crown Perth
