What’s on and what’s new! Plan Your Day

Updated: Feb 27

By Sophie Binning


Hyde Park Festival is this weekend so it’s time to get your game plan sorted! With Hyde Park Festival getting bigger and better every year, we have some awesome new additions that you and your family will love!


Not only is the festival itself gaining new additions, but ways to get to and from the park have been added to make it easier for you and your family to get in and out of North Perth. With limited parking, alternate options are always recommended. If you don’t live in the immediate area, Transperth is your best option, with free public transport available for all SmartRider users on Sundays. On Monday, the FamilyRider ticket is a cost-effective option. Check out JourneyPlanner for more information on the buses that will get you to and from the festival. Added this year is an event shuttle bus picking up from 5 parking locations in the Perth, East Perth, and North Perth area. These are James Street, Newcastle Street, Summers Street (East Perth Train Station – Western Side), Barlee Street and Brisbane Street.


Rotary of North Perth are this year trialing a shuttle bus service, this is our first time doing this and it is a volunteer run event so please bear with us if there is any issues, the buses will be leaving the park from the Williams St service entrance at the following times and do a clockwise route.

10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm, 4pm, 5pm and on Sunday only 8pm.

The pick up/drop off locations are:

  1. Barlee Street Parking (COV)

  2. Summer Street Parking/Perth Transport Centre (East Perth train station/COV)

  3. Brisbane Street Parking (COV)

  4. Newcastle Street (CPP)

  5. James Street (Wilsons)

If you live closer to the park, walking, cycling or even taking advantage of the City of Vincent’s brand new e-scooters are great ways to have a stress-free (and active) morning.


For more information on City of Vincent’s new e-scooters check out their website:


Once at the park head over to the Fuel to Go & Play Mainstage at 10am to participate in a yoga class, then stay for the opening ceremony and Welcome to Country. Following the opening ceremony, you will be treated to an amazing line up of entertainment, from dancing, live music, and aerial performances. And of course, Talent in the Park at 5pm on Sunday and Dogs of Hyde Park at 1pm on Monday!


The Fuel to Go & Play Mainstage isn’t the only place you will find music. With THREE designated busking areas around the park, you will be able to explore the 200+ stalls and amusements with a fantastic soundtrack all weekend!


With the help of our presenting partner, Fuel to Go & Play, all our incredible food vendors are making sure you have healthy food and drink options available, to keep you energised throughout the weekend. You’ll also want to make sure you head to the Halyn Hydration Station for free water, and water bottle refills, courtesy of Halyn Property. We also have dog bowls around the park for your furry friends, courtesy of Fuel to Go & Play.


New this year is the Discover Rotary area. A place to learn more about the wonderful people who put on the Hyde Park Festival every year, in the hope to bring the community together for a good cause. This year, the area will include stalls to discuss the beneficiaries and activities the Rotary Club of North Perth, as well as lawn games and a colouring in station for a gold coin donation.


Situated between the lakes, next to the Discover Rotary area, will be some great FREE immersive experiences. The iNSTRUCKTA, a VR experience to help young road users learn about being safe around large trucks and vehicles, will be there on both days. The RAC Rescue Experience will be there on Sunday ONLY, allowing eventgoers the chance to see what it’s like inside the RAC Rescue Helicopter.


In the Splash Zone (corner of Throssell & Vincent Streets) you will find the permanent water playground to cool off, alongside great inflatable amusements from Perth Bouncy Castle Hire, new this year to the festival, they are sure to get you jumping up and down with glee! Check out the Great White Shark slide, Inflatable Obstacle Courses, Mechanical Wipeout, Fire Truck Ride, Jungle Obstacle Course and Bouncy Castles.


On the southside of the park you will find the wondrously whimsical Unicorn Garden, a place you can interact with unicorns and their fairy helpers, including a magical unicorn ride around the park.


So come down and see what it’s all about on Sunday March 3rd and Monday March 4th. Bring the whole family, including dogs (on lead) to explore what we have to offer. Gates open at 10am both days!
