Go for a picnic
Various locations around Perth
Why not prepare a picnic for your beloved Mum this Mother’s Day? You can easily create your very own charcuterie board from scratch or grab some treats from your favourite Perth eatery or bakery.
Keep things simple or hire a stunning picnic set-up. While Kings Park tends to be the more popular picnic spot, certainly don’t look past the other plethora of parks within the City of Perth. A tranquil inner city gem, John Oldham Park features cascading waterfalls and plenty of birdlife to spot. Queens Gardens is another hidden urban oasis, framed by lakes with waterlilies and towering trees.
