In 2021, we're in for a treat with a 4-day long weekend thanks to Christmas and New Year's falling right on the weekend.
After you're done partying and nursing your hangover though, creep out from under the covers and make the most of your days off with these fun and fulfilling activities.
With the sun shining brightly and the beach calling, peel yourself off that towel and get out on the water. You could make it luxurious by hiring a catamaran for a few hours, explore the rivers by stand-up paddleboard or feel the wind and water in your hair on an epic thrill ride. The choices are endless.
The locals don't go on holidays during the season, so why not swing by their place and say hello? A number of boat tours as well as snorkelling and diving experiences run on 26 December where you can say hello to all manner of underwater life from dolphins and penguins to sharks.
'Tis the season to drink and be merry. If you feel the same, then keep the good times rolling with a tour of the local wine regions. There are more than a handful within reach of Perth from Swan Valley and Perth Hills to the Margaret River region.
The biggest blockbusters of the year are often released on or near Boxing Day. This year's highlights include The Matrix Resurrections, Sing 2 and West Side Story.
Pick your team wisely and take on a final challenge of the year. Will it be an escape room, a race along a treetop rope course or a laser tag skirmish?
You've done your duty by putting on a banger of a Christmas dinner. Now it's time to let someone else get in the kitchen and pamper you with some good grub. Head out on Boxing Day and taste the best the city has to offer. Just make sure you book a table to avoid having to wait in line in the heat.
One of the best places to be is underwater when the sun is out. Water parks are a fantastic option if you have little ones you need to entertain.
Bigger kids can jump into the deeper pools, dive with sharks or try their hand at scuba diving.
Prefer to stay inside on Boxing Day where the temperature is perfectly air-conditioned and the crowds are nowhere in sight? You don't have to look far to keep the little ones busy. Book a course to suit their interests and they'll be immersed for hours.
Perth is brimming with history. Why not play the role of tourist and learn a little more about your city and its surroundings? You can tour the ANZAC Bell Tower in the city or head further out to the historic townships of York and Rottnest Island.
Keen to see this year off with a bang? If you've always had a skydive on your bucket list but haven't quite mustered up the courage to jump on it, this is your chance.
Want the best seat in the house on Boxing Day? You've got it. Take the bird's eye view from above as you fly over the heart of the city or get behind the wheel with your very own flying lesson.
If you're not comfortable heading out to the cinemas, there are plenty of binge-worthy flicks you can watch at home on the day. Enjoy a movie and some popcorn in your pyjamas – the way it was meant to be.
Boxing Day in Australia wouldn't be the same without the sales. It's a time when stores, both physical and online, give their products a super heavy chop.
Keen to grab the bargain of the year? These stores have their doors wide open on 26 December for you to find the best.
If you'd prefer to shop in your pyjamas though (who doesn't?), there are plenty of deals to snap up online as well. Here are our picks of the best.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
