The Highland Gathering and Perth Kilt Run is back for 2023

Join the City of Armadale to celebrate all things Scottish at the largest Highland Gathering event held in Western Australia that has people saying things like…

“Don’t miss it. It’s an incredibly unique experience that is all about community.”

“It was a sensory feast of the sights and sounds of Scotland.”

“Omg everything was so well planned! And the diversity of things to see and do is amazing.”

Perth Kilt Run

The morning of Sunday October 8 begins with the fun and quirky Perth Kilt Run, the biggest and only fun run in Australia that’s done in a kilt! Register for the 2.5km Classic or the 5km Warrior challenge, BYO kilts or purchase one with registration. It’s a charity fun run with a difference and you’re guaranteed to have a good time! Both courses are open to walkers and runners, and the 2.5km Classic is accessible for prams and wheelchairs.

As you’d expect… the excitement doesn’t stop there. Following the Perth Kilt Run, we roll straight into the Highland Gathering where you’ll have the rest of the day to experience Highland dancing, pipe bands and heavy event competitions, meet and greet Scottish dogs, explore Clan histories, friendly battles between the medieval groups in the arena, live music and test your taste buds with the variety of Scottish delights, and lots more!

This is a family friendly and smoke/vape free event hosted by the City of Armadale.

The Armadale Highland Gathering and Perth Kilt Run will take place on Sunday October 8th at Minnawarra Park in Armadale, Western Australia. Further details are available at
