  • Australia Day

    Well Australia Day is almost here and only being new to Perth I was wondering what sort of events are on around the place. I know the skyshow is on but I thought what better people to ask than locals.

    Track Day at Barbagello. That's where I'll be But there are a few other non-bike related things going on too, mostly round the CBD I guess.
    I've got a Blade, I'm not afraid...

      Usually the foreshore is the place to be.. Haven't gone in a while but used to be pretty good back in 09/10.. Anyone know if you're still allowed to drink at the foreshore?

        God I hope so...always makes for a better news cast the next day.
        Fuck the Sky-show!! Biggest yobbo, knob-fest ever. However, it does draw the crowds which makes anywhere else you go that much more pleasant.

          BYO Picnic Zones | Australia Day Skyworks - City of Perth

          There is a spot we found the other year with no lighting and very few people and a huge grassed area. Will probably pushy ride down there again this year. Only a twenty minute ride from our place.

                  you should do the skyshow at least once in your life so you can say "I will never ever go back to it again" every year

                  I did not mind the fireworks, but trying to get a parking, dealing with crowds of drunken yobbos, fights, getting stuck in traffic trying to get out of the city..... yeah... good fun...

                    Australia Day

                    Haha by the sounds of it the sky show is not the place to go. I have been once before when I was about 10 and in Perth for holidays

                      Foreshore is balls.

                      BBQ, alcohol, kiddie pool, JJJ hottest 100.

                      Avoid the dickheads altogether.

                            Straya day

                            Wear an Aussie flag as a cape, drink beer, eat red meat, and tell anyone who isn't white to "fuck off we're full".

                            That's how it's done.

                              I noticed the city side is a little better in terms of crowd behaviors... I lived on the south Perth side since '96 - '05... every Aust day we would get people parking right up to our drive ways blocking our car, thefts, break ins around the area, vandalism, broken glasses and bottles, fights and cops....
