City Wine 2016

Date: 10-11 June
Location: Urban Orchard, Perth Cultural Centre

People who say they don’t like wine just haven’t found the right one yet – and while it’s generally a bit expensive to go to a restaurant and ask for “one of each”, City Wine 2016 can help. There’s a huge selection of varietals on offer from local boutique producers, so whether you’re a wine snob or a total novice, you’re going to find a wine you’ll love. The pop-up event at the Urban Orchard will also have delicious tapas to enjoy with your wine, as well as live music and a convivial vibe all night. Find out more


Perth Marathon 2016

Date: 12 June
Location: WAMC Club Rooms

Beat the winter bulge and get moving with the Perth Marathon and relay. Raising funds for CanTeen, the scenic course runs alongside the Swan River. If you think a full 42.2km marathon is too much for you to take on, with all the training and whatnot, you can still get involved by opting for the relay option. In teams of two to four, runners can combine their efforts and share the hefty load, breaking up the course into shorter, more manageable legs. Register today and help support young people with cancer by running your heart out. Find out more
