There are heaps of great things to do in Morley
Morley is quite a large suburb and has plenty to offer, including a very large shopping centre and markets. It also has quite a lot of other places to go to that are really worthwhile and this is a list of some of my favourites.
1. GALLERIA SHOPPING CENTRE The Galleria is a well-known landmark and is a two storey building with parking on both levels, allowing about 4,200 cars to park there. It is on the corner of Walter and Collier Roads and has one major Department Store with several supermarkets. It has about 210 shops in all.
An Events movie theatre is at one end of the shopping centre and you can see a full list of the stores here. It also has quite a large Food Hall and several other cafes and restaurants dotted around the centre.
Some of my favourite places in this shopping centre are:
2. OP SHOPS Morley is the "capital" or hub of op shops! Here there are about 5 shops within less than 500 metres of each other. One of my favourite ones is: Save the Children which is on Rudloc Street, and parking outside is easy.
RESTAURANTS 4. SIZZLERS Many people do not like Sizzlers, however, I take my grandchildren here and they love it. It is good value for money. Read more about it here
5. MEDITARANEO RESTAURANT
This is family run restaurant just outside Coventry Markets and is well priced with excellent food. Read more about it here
6. THE WANG'S TREASURE HOUSE
This restaurant has people lined up on most days and is one of the best Yum Cha places in Perth. Read more about it here.
7. FAST EDDYS
Fast Eddys was an icon when I first came to Perth many years ago. I still enjoy going there with all the vintage or now antique, signs and memorabilia. Read more about it here.
8. ABRA KEBABRA
This is a Turkish cafe and one which I go to every few weeks. They make excellent gozleme which I always have there! Read more about it here - it is No 5 on this list.

9. MORLEY ROLLERDROME
I do not roller skate, however, I have taken my grandchildren to this Rollerdrome and they love it. Read more about it here.

10. TENPIN BOWLING
Tenpin bowling was very fashionable some 30 years ago and we all used to go regularly. It is perhaps not quite as "in" as it was then, however, this bowling alley has been there for many years and still seems to be busy. Nowadays they also have gaming parlours and do birthday parties as well as tenpin bowling.
11. MIGHTY JUNGLE
I have also taken my grandchildren here and they serve breakfast, and lunch, so it is great as you can sit down and relax while the children play. Ideally, it is suited for ages 0 to 4 years old and it is a bright, colourful place.
12. REALMZ ESCAPE GAMES
This is a fascinating place where there are real-life room Escape Games, also known as Escape Rooms. The concept involves between 2 and 5 people going into a themed room with a backstory. In here, you must interact with your surroundings, using items and clues to solve a series of puzzles in order to escape within a 45 minute time period.
13. DOWNUNDER RIDERS
Here you can have motorcycle lessons. Perhaps you are thinking of buying a motorcycle or are not sure and want to try it out! You can learn to ride a scooter, small bike or large bike. They have more than 10 years of riding and motorcycle training experience and a proven track record with the majority passing their tests and obtaining their license.
14. MORLEY SPORT & RECREATION CENTRE
There are heaps of things you can do at this conveniently situated centre on the corner of Wellington and Mangini Streets. They even have a creche so mums with babies can attend.
