Take the family on a trip to Kings Park, Araluen Botanic Park, Perth Zoo, Cohunu Koala Park, Caversham Wildlife Park, or the Armadale Reptile and Wildlife Centre. Take along a picnic and enjoy a relaxing day out at some of Western Australia's most beautiful parkland areas.

Visit the Western Australian Museum, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Fremantle Maritime Museum, or the Fremantle Shipwreck Galleries, and check out the fascinating collections and exhibitions on offer.

Cinema complexes, such as Hoyts, are open over the Long Weekend. Take in a new movie, such as The Maze Runner, Sin City, or Into The Storm, or take the kids along to see The Boxtrolls, Disney's Planes, Fire and Rescue, or The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Most Shopping Centres are open over the Long Weekend so you can get in a spot or retail therapy or maybe start your Christmas Shopping early.

The popular Fremantle Markets will be open all Long Weekend, and so will the E-Shed Markets. Pop down to Freo for a little relaxation, grab a coffee or lunch and wander the markets looking for a bargain.

These are just a few suggestions for this upcoming Long Weekend and there are many more, remember to visit the websites to check opening times and session times. Of course you could just take it easy and relax at home, but if your looking for something to do, there's plenty out there.
