How do I meet people in Perth?

When we asked people living in Perth about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:

"Cycling, any children's activities, triathlon, swimming, running and basically any outdoor activities," said a retiree who moved to Perth, Australia.

"If you have children it seems very easy to meet others through playgroups, kindergarten/school etc. If not, then joining a sports team/club is a good start. Also participating in outings etc that are arranged through other newcomers - I've found it easier to make friends with other newbies (foreigners or those from other parts of Australia) than long time Perth people," said another retiree in Perth.

"Pick a sport, any sport and that is the best way to meet someone over here. If sport isn't your thing then try bushwalking, volunteer groups, join a gym, whatever, there really is quite a diverse range of groups you can join," commented one retiree living in Perth, Australia.
