Sensory tour at Perth City Farm on International White Cane Day

It’s a sensory experience to celebrate International White Cane Day (IWCD). We want to invite you to a sensory tour of Perth City Farm (link opens in new window).

Come and join us! Embrace the sounds, smells of the farm and touch the flora and plant life. Perth City Farm is conveniently located next door to the Claisebrook Train Station and the Yellow CAT bus stops right outside.

In this one-hour sensory tour you will explore a bush tucker garden with a selection of edible native plants. Find out why the sandpaper fig is called just that.

Enjoy the fabulous artwork mosaic textures. Did you know that the farm was one of the first places in Perth to legally practice street art?

Enjoy the scented herbs of lemon verbena, mint, basil and sage. Take in the earthy smell of freshly made compost and say hello to the flock of chooks processing mountains of organic material and aerating soil.

Our International White Cane Day Tour (link opens in new window) starts at 0930 but if you can’t make it then, why not join us an hour later for brunch at Farmology Cafe?

You are also invited to explore the food market held at the farm that day.

Perth City Farm has become an icon for environmental and community engagement. Established 27 years ago and covering half a hectare, it has a fascinating history. It’s a welcoming oasis in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Perth city.

Its aim and ethos? To positively encourage visitors to pause and reconnect with themselves, other people, and wonderful nature.

The farm models sustainable living practices, and we will find out more on our tour. We will also enjoy brunch at Farmology Cafe on site.
