Time to have some fun in great outdoors: Outdoors October

PEOPLE are being encouraged to get outside this weekend as part of Outdoors October.

Outdoors WA and the Department of Sport and Recreation have compiled an online list of outdoor activities and events in WA.

A range of events will take place in the Hills, starting with a parents’ and children’s mountain bike ride around Kalamunda from 8am tomorrow as part of International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.

Also tomorrow is an introduction to abseiling in Boya and on Sunday the monthly Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective social ride will leave from Zig Zag Cafe.

Children can camp out overnight on October 6 at Perth Hills Discovery Centre in Mundaring, where they will experience bush cooking, a wildlife trapping and release session and nocturnal night walk run by Department of Parks and Wildlife. Visit www.outdoorsoctober.com.au
