Going on a business trip to Perth has its perks. You get to enjoy the natural beauty of Australia despite being within a metropolitan area. This is why you shouldn’t just focus on your business meetings, deal making, and contract signing when in Perth. Give yourself time to enjoy a few of what the city has to offer other than what you see during executive meetings.
Exapt.com.au shares some of the things you should experience in this lively city:
Check the Nightlife
Enjoy the St. George Terrace show of mixed circus talents doing burlesque, snake and sword dancing, contortion routines, and magic shows by the Twisted Vaudeville Circus. Featured every fourth Friday of the month, you get a different and amazing show each time with your three-course dinner. If you want to end the corporate meeting with a bang, have some cocktails in one of the “secret” bars of Murray Street.
Roast away on one of the park grills at Kings Park’s picnic area, or visit a local farmer’s market at central park for a quick meal while sitting on the grass. How about bringing a picnic hamper and a blanket to Cottesloe beach instead? If you want to stay near your rented executive apartments, just bring that picnic basket to Swan River Walk.
Immerse Yourself in the Arts
After that hectic proposal and presentation, treat yourself to a concert by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra or a performance of the Western Australian Opera or Ballet. All three were established in the 1960s and have continued to give quality performances to this day. If viewing local artwork is your thing, go to the Aboriginal Arts and Crafts Gallery at Mount Eliza, Kings Park. You can view the best of Aboriginal culture, providing you a glimpse of their indigenous art.
There are hundreds of other things you can do to enjoy your stay in Perth even during business trips. Research the places you want to visit, so you can include them in your itinerary. As they say, all work and no play makes for a sad stay.
