Another year has come to an end, and you can let out a big sigh of relief now that you’ve finally got a little time to yourself. And the best way to really recharge your batteries before work starts back up is to get serious about your health and wellbeing.
Yeah, yeah, we know – everyone’s got this on their New Years’ Resolution list, but this countdown of the best health and beauty offerings isn’t just about hitting the gym. No, we’re talking pampering, self-care, and truly revitalising your whole body while you’ve actually got some time to yourself. So get clicking, and book yourself in to these divine wellness centres in Perth.
What would an Aussie summer look like without some time in the surf? Particularly if you find yourself sitting atop a long board, waiting for the perfect wave. Go Surf Perth is a cracker of a surf school, and our pick for best outdoor adventure this summer; did we mention it’s an amazing whole body workout?
With lessons from $27.50, and the backdrop of the beautiful Brighton Beach in Scarborough, it’s the ideal way to get amongst some nature and have an awesome time. Their seasoned instructors sure know their way around a board, and will have you hanging ten in no time.
