So get off the couch, wave goodbye to Netflix and get outside to enjoy these last few weeks of sunny outdoor weather.

Here’s our top picks for the week:

Sets on the Beach Summer Send Off

What better way to say goodbye to summer than combining the two things us ‘Aussies’ love most:

Music … and the beach of course!

Sets on the Beach is renowned for hosting some of WA’s biggest beach bashes, and they’re back this Saturday for the ‘Summer Send-Off’.

The party starts at 2pm at Port Beach, Fremantle and will continue on until 11pm.

KU-DE-TA White Party

For the first time ever KU-DE-TA , Perth’s overseas outpost of the renowned Balinese restaurant, is hosting a White Party!

The event will bring guests an impressive international DJ line-up including:

  • AEROPLANE (Defected)
  • MO’FUNK (Glitterbox, Hï Ibiza)

The White Party has a dress code to accompany their theme ‘Tippin the Light Fantastic’, with guests having to dress up in their best whites with a futuristic flair.

Gluten-Free Expo

The Gluten Free Expo is back again bringing you a spectacular showcase of the newest and best, gluten free foods.

With dietary requirements and allergies being an ever-increasing problem foodies have to face, this expo will be an opportunity to learn more about what delicious and easy-to-prepare food is out there.

The event runs from 9am until 5pm on Saturday March 24 and Sunday March 25.

It is an event for the whole family to enjoy with food available to purchase, samples and giveaways available on the day. So make sure to come with an empty stomach!

Alternatively, you can get your tickets on the day for $18 general admission, $12 concession, and children under the age of 16 enter for free. Tickets are valid for one day only.


Dog n Jog

For those of you who struggle to go out on weekends simply because you get withdrawals leaving your ‘fur-babies’ at home, then this event is for you!

The ‘Dog n Jog’ is an annual event hosted by Perth’s Murdoch University and will be running once again this Saturday 25 March.

The Dog n Jog is a free event where participants can register to compete in a 3.5 km walk, a 3.5 km run, or a 10km run.

And if you’re wondering whether your dog can keep up for the 10km run, or your want to join the event but don’t have a dog; that’s not problem, because dogs are not compulsory.

The event runs from 8am to 12pm, with the race starting at 9am sharp.

If you want to bring a friend along (even one that gets tired after walking outside to get the mail) make sure to convince them with the music and refreshments that will be available at the event. And let’s not forget about the dog-friendly popsicles to treat your dog after a workout. After all, they’ve burned the calories anyway!

Head to the Bush Court Oval at Murdoch University to get some food and fresh air for you and your four-legged friend. Click here to register.
