Whilst Western Australia and Perth specifically are known for their rolling coastline, stunning beaches and being the sunniest city the world-over; the colder months offer equally as many activities and ventures to take part in. You just need to be in the know; and at InterContinental Perth, we are.
Sometimes the best thing about the wintertime is what you can wear. Being located at the beating heart of Perth City’s high-end retail precinct makes shopping for coats, boots and scarves incredibly convenient and a luxury experience. A five minute walk from the hotel you can find treasures like Cult Status on King Street, home to labels such as Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Céline and more. This boutique is a one-stop shop for everything accessories and offers the latest trends in the fashion industry
Invest in your health and well-being and book a spa package at Endota Spa, across the road from the hotel. Endota Spa on Hay Street has a calming and relaxing environment and an excellent team to help you decide which treatment combinations are going to boost your immune system and help your body feel nourished and taken care of for the colder months. The Immerse spa package is designed to indulge, replenish and restore and comes highly recommended.
Take a time-out
Bibliophile: a person who loves to collect or be around books.
Reading can be a cathartic and wellness-boosting pastime that sets the mind at ease and slows the pace down. Visit Elizabeth’s Book Store, a warm and cosy shop full of pre-loved books from floorboard to ceiling tile, along Hay Street and less than a five-minute walk from the hotel. Take a chance on a gem and buy their ‘Blind-Date-With-A-Book’ option or peruse the endless piles of novels across every genre.
All of the lights
Winterfest in Perth City is a site to behold with the City of Perth lighting up laneways and creating pop-up experiences in pockets of the CBD for you to explore. The city becomes a stage for theatre, variety shows, musical experiences and more, and at InterContinental Perth you’re on the doorstep of it all.
On the Swan
Breakfast in winter consists of bagels, croissants, pastries, and anything that can keep you warm, full and content. Explore Elizabeth Quay, a short ten-minute stroll from the hotel, and enjoy a delicious breakfast at The Island; a heritage listed building that centres you on Swan River with lush greenery and indoor and alfresco seating options.
