The World’s Best Food Truck

Date: 2 September

Location: Elizabeth Quay, Perth

In case you haven’t heard, the 2016 UCI World Championship is being held in Perth this year (it’s a cycling thing… kind of a big deal). Therefore, the city’s food trucks have decided to band together to commemorate this special occasion the only way they know how: a big ol’ foodie contest! They’ll all be assembled in Elizabeth Quay on Friday 2nd, so all you have to do is wander down, grab some grub and vote for your favourite mobile distributor of deliciousness. Only then will we learn which of them truly is… The World’s Best Food Truck. Find out more


Swan Valley Mudfest

Date: 18 September

Location: Belvoir Estate, Swan Valley

Have you ever wanted to dress up, amble out to the picturesque countryside and scramble around in the mud like you don’t have a care in the world? Then the Swan Valley Mudfest is most definitely for you! This wonderfully goofy event consists of three of the muddiest obstacle courses every conceived (one for adults, one for kids, and even one for dogs), and it’s a ton of fun to compete in. De-stress, have a laugh and even raise some money for the RSPCA, before hitting the showers and exploring the multitude of food vendors dotted about the beautiful Belvoir Estate. Sounds like a good day to us! Find out more
