For overseas visitors

Got guests coming for Christmas? Go for an edible gift (which they can gobble up straight away in case there’s no room in their luggage). The Aussie animal shapes from the Margaret River Chocolate Company’s shop on Murray Street are always a hit - hello, choccie quokkas. Or try the gourmet truffles of Sue Lewis Chocolatier, featuring native flavours like saltbush caramel, honey & wattleseed, lemon myrtle, and raspberry strawberry gum.

For a Secret Santa

Head to Pigeonhole on Hay Street. This Perth-based business is now known across Australia for its quirky gift selection. Find a fun pair of socks or earrings to complement your Kris Kringle recipient’s style. Or if it’s a random gift swap arrangement, a cute reusable cup or pot plant are good bets.

For adventure seekers

Book them in to see the city from a unique perspective on the Matagarup Bridge Zip+Climb for a memorable Perth Christmas gift. Participants can clamber up to an open-air viewing platform 72 metres above the stunning Swan River, and then feel the thrill of whooshing along a 400-metre zipline.
