Speed Friending: Make new friends in Perth: (20s&30s)

Speed Friending is the newest way to grow your social life in Perth. It works similar to the Speed Dating format but it’s all about making new friends. Finally a place to go - just to make new friends!

We had our first event in February and had a great turn out with lots of new friendships made.


Why Speed Friending?

  • Meet new people and make new friendships

  • If you’ve just moved to Perth it’s a great way to start connecting to the community

  • Or if you’re just travelling through, you could perhaps find a new travel buddy or someone to experience Perth with while you’re here

  • Grow your social life and experience more of Perth, whether you’re a local, new to the city or just passing through, Speed Friending can benefit you

  • A great way to step out of your comfort zone and build your confidence

Who’s it for?

  • It’s for anyone looking to make new friends - couples, singles, groups of friends and all are welcome.

  • We will have different age group events, including female only and interest specific events coming up

How it works

  • Please arrive on time at 10am to get your name badge, then take a seat on the grass anywhere and get ready to mingle

  • When we start you’ll be assigned a partner

  • Once the time is up, listen out for a bell and you’ll switch partners

  • There will be rotations every 5-7 mins, depending on numbers

  • All instructions will be provided by the host when we start

After the event finishes we’ll head on over somewhere at the Yagan Square Market Hall to get some lunch and mingle some more, you’ll hear about the location at the event.

Please note

  • This specific event is for age group 20’s & 30’s however, we have other age group Speed Friending events coming soon

  • Wear something comfortable as you’ll be seated on grass and remember to put some sunscreen on
