The best part? You can explore a range of captivating exhibitions and artistic marvels for free! 

Catch a Movie 
At Telethon Community Cinemas, treat yourself to a cinematic experience under the stars. With an impressive line-up of family-friendly films at multiple locations across Perth, it’s the perfect way to unwind during the break and to split up study days. The sessions are even budget-friendly! Otherwise, an alternative is catching a cult classic at Planet Royale in Northbridge, which shows for free every Sunday. 


Sunset Over the Indian Ocean

Check out a new Study Spot 
If you are heading to campus anyway this week, refresh your study environment by exploring new study spots. Swap the library for outdoor spaces and enjoy the weather, or venture to the City of Perth Library’s Youth/Student area for a fresh and inspiring study environment.

Food Truck Markets |
Looking to shake up your dinner routine after hitting the books on campus? Head to South Perth strEATS, a food truck market on the foreshore just a short drive from Bentley campus.
