How to Fringe closer to home

Once Upon a Burlesque by Dolltastic Burlesque.

FRINGE WORLD Festival escapes the city each year to venues spread out all over our beautiful part of the State.

Here's how you can find some Fringe goodness near you, or perhaps a fun day-trip away from the everyday. 


Set to satisfy the biggest of Fringe Binge cravings north of Perth, Funtavia in Geraldton promises 3-nights of spectacular international, national and local performances, such as comedy, cabaret, visual arts, dance and music.

Don’t miss What My Mother Told Me - hilarious stories on the perils of puberty, your rights to rebel, and the blooms of what you thought was your first love from four very out the box characters.

Buy tickets to Funtavia events.

Kat Davidson - Still Standing Up.


The perfect place to party; an eclectic family friendly environment at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens.

Make sure you check out Kat Davidson Still Standing Up, for a celebration of surviving twenty years in stand up across two countries, thousands of stages and countless worn out high heels.

Karma Rottnest

Rottnest Island is home to secluded beaches, turquoise seas, the friendliest marsupials you’ll ever meet – and for, one special month, Fringe!

Indulge yourself with Uncorked Comedy – Wine Tasting With a Comedian. Wine plus live comedy, what could possibly go wrong?

Lake Nenia

This beautiful Mundaring space provides the perfect tranquil backdrop to enjoy Fringe leaving you feeling reconnected to nature as well as the arts. Gates open 1.5 hour prior to event start time so why not rediscover nature while you’re there.

Rediscover the classic novel Frankenstein too in Not all a Dream - a new play that dives into the novel’s creation. Join us early for a lakeside picnic, as we recreate the haunting majesty of Lake Geneva in this site-specific production.
