Loritz Circus in Perth - Magic under the Big Top


The circus is in town - in the suburb of Armadale, Perth to be exact. Loritz Circus' bold and bright red and yellow big top beckons with a light hearted carnival spirit in the air as the excited crowd lines up to get a ringside seat. Roll up, roll up…. there are lots of amazing acts to discover at the Loritz Circus.

The theme for the night is Out of Africa as the stage awakens at dawn to a day in the wild jungles of Africa.

The Loritz Circus performers are high energy… breathtaking and exuberant, and just when you thought you couldn’t possibly see any more acts that defy human capabilities, they return to the ring with a few more jaw dropping tricks up their sleeve. Unbelievable, amazing, superb are a few of the words that come to mind.

Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe Beach


Each year art comes to Perth’s Cottesloe Beach in the form of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, transforming the beachfront into a sculpture garden and showcasing the work of more than 70 local, national and international artists.

The original Sculpture by the Sea exhibition was held at Sydney’s Bondi Beach in 1997, expanding to Cottesloe in 2005 and Aarhus, Denmark, in 2009.  It had its origins in the desire of founder David Handley to create a free public arts event, a goal he has certainly achieved.

The Perth community has embraced Sculpture by the Sea, with a record 215 000 people attending the exhibition in 2011, and big crowds attending this year.  Visitors mingle with beach-goers, lifesavers and locals as they explore the sculptures.

West Coast Blues n Roots Festival: April 1st 2012

Headliners:  John Fogerty, The Pogues, Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Specials, Buddy Guy, My Morning Jacket (and heaps more!)

In 2008, I attended my first blues and roots festival at the Fremantle Esplanade.  My hippy friend Meg dragged me along, and I remember having an epic time – it was when the festival lasted two days and I spent both days making new friends, taking lots of photos, dancing to music, sitting under the pines and listening to the most relaxed music. It was amazing, and a great introduction to the world of live music.
