What to Do in Perth for Your Anniversary or Honeymoon Staycation
The key to a long and lasting relationship comprises many elements—perhaps the most interesting is to do something new and different together. From marvelling at nature’s gifts, to diving into extreme sports, Perth offers the ideal backdrop for building new memories and reconnecting with each other.
Start slow, with something as simple as enjoying a sunset together at iconic Cottesloe Beach, while strolling on its pristine white sands. Or enjoy a fine wine or two with a vineyard tour, taking you through Swan Valley’s best wine-producing regions. Beyond wine tasting, indulge in an exquisite cheese board while admiring the rolling hills.
Thirsty for something more robust? Make it a couple’s activity when you create your own gin at the Swan Valley Gin Co. At the gin construction class, you can acquaint yourself with the magical world of botanicals as you choose the flavours for your gin. At the end of the session, bottle and label your bespoke gin, which you can bring home and indulge at leisure.
If you and your partner thrive on living dangerously, Perth provides the perfect canvas for extreme activities—like falling out of a plane! Both exhilarating and terrifying, tandem diving (skydiving with a seasoned instructor) hurtles you out of a plane over Perth city, offering both of you a unique shared experience that will last a lifetime in your memory and pictures and videos.
Enjoy the view from Perth’s skies? Catch a helicopter ride over Perth’s incredible skyline for a longer look. Wish to take it slower? Hop onto a scenic hot air balloon ride over the dreamy Avon Valley to soak in the picturesque sights at dawn. Between the panoramic views, the joy of flying, and the company of your loved one, we are certain that this will be a flight to remember.

What to Do in Perth for Your Babymoon Staycation
Having a baby on the way spells exciting times ahead. A babymoon is great for couples to have one-on-one time before the baby’s imminent arrival. Having said that, be mindful to plan babymoon activities that have less exertion and more enjoyment.
A great activity to start with is stargazing at the Perth Observatory, where you can look heavenwards and be amazed at life’s wonders—including the little one in the mummy’s tummy.
Learning new recipes together is another great way to prepare for parenthood and bond with each other. At Salt and Co, you can pick from an extensive cuisine list of cooking classes. Take this time to discover ingredients and techniques that will enhance your cooking skills.
After standing on your feet the whole day, you will need to rest your aching body. This is the perfect time to lie down, unwind and rejuvenate yourself with a trip to the spa. For mothers-to-be, the luxurious Bodhi Pregnancy Nurture package at Bodhi J Spa is heavent-sent—it’s most popular nurturing ritual includes a full-body pregnancy massage, followed by a vitamin-rich instant glow facial for a radiant look.
Refreshed from your invigorating spa experience? Get ready to tingle your soul with some art education at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. From Indian to Asian craft, European to local works, the gallery houses an eclectic collection of regional and local art that inspires and enriches.
Move on from the beauty of artworks to the wonders of nature at Kings Park and Botanic Garden. Rich in Aboriginal and European history, Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 unique flora species of the state. A walk here is ideal to lift the mood of an expectant mother.
A babymoon should also come with a celebration, and high tea at Bar UMA creates the perfect setting for a memorable mini baby shower. Pan Pacific Perth’s Bar Uma’s Free-Flowing High Tea offers an experience that lets you pick from a selection of tea, coffee and sparkling wine options, and a range of delectable sweet and savoury treats.
