What to do in this wintry weather?

24th May 2017

It’s raining outside! It’s too cold outside! There’s nothing to do! I wish summer would come back!

Have you found yourself constantly saying these things over the past few weeks? Well, we can assure you that there is still plenty to do in Perth in this cold, wintery weather!

Firstly book yourself a few nights away at one of our stunning ocean view properties, then take a read below of all the activities you can still do by yourself, with your partner or with the kids when the weather isn’t so nice outside.

Captain Cook Cruises

Experience all that the magnificent Swan River has to offer with a special Cottesloe Beach House Stays 5% OFF deal. Choose from a variety of cruise and tour options including cruises to both the Swan Valley and Fremantle.

We recommend Perth’s Famous Wine Cruise for this time of year:

“Relax and enjoy the iconic city skyline and beautiful picturesque landscape as you escape the city and cruise leisurely into the upper regions of the Swan Valley.

You'll be treated to a delicious, filling two course lunch from the coveted Sandalford Estate following an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the winery and a one of a kind wine tasting! All of this is capped off with live entertainment and tantalizing desserts.

Captain Cook Cruises’ wine cruise is a fantastic way to spend the day with friends and family as you cruise along the river and get to know the Swan Valley a different way!”

Head to www.captaincookcruises.com.au to choose your cruise or tour and call Cottesloe Beach House Stays on +61 8 9286 2641 or email at info@cbhstays.com.au to secure your booking and receive your 5% OFF discount.
