Ways to Warm Up Your Winter Staycation ❄️

Feeling a bit stuck in Perth and not sure what to do with yourself this winter break? We’ve got a whole heap of events and cool spots to keep you busy (and off Netflix) before uni starts up again so shed the Oodie and fire up the group chat!

Cool Catch-Up Spo(r)ts

Have a sporty streak? Try Holey Moley for a round of mini golf with a nostalgic twist! ⛳🥂🕺From Harry Putter to Bikini Bottom-themed golf holes served with a side of karaoke 🎤🥳, a good time is guaranteed! Go for Rosemount Bowl’s ten-pin bowling if the mood ~strikes~ 🎳. A more fam-friendly option and chill outing, it’s perfect for catching up with friends!

Golfing and bowling too tame for you? Try plummeting from a crazy height! 🪂 Skydive Australia has your back! Skydive over Perth CBD or the beach at Rockingham. If you’re keen to freefall at over 200km/hr for up to 60 seconds before floating over unbeatable views, this might before you!

Pssst – The Guild are hooking you up with special deals just for UWA students! Visit Holey Moley Northbridge with your valid student ID and get $9 for 9 holes of golf*, Rosemount Bowl for 2 games (incl. shoes) for $18pp* and use promo code UWAGUILD for $30 off your skydive* 🎉
