Set out on a Hike or Swim with a Picnic
For those willing to trek a little, make the hike worthwhile and pack a picnic for that post-swim treat. Great places to check out for both Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day include Serpentine Falls with three different trails or Kitty Gorge with the chance to swim in the falls. Both locations are about an hour away from Perth.
Highly recommended for Galentine’s Day, book a spot at a number of different venues featuring a bottomless brunch. Indulge over at Pan Pacific with bottomless high tea or a three-course shared meal with free-flowing pink gin cocktails and rose at Stables Bar. Click here for more information.
