To get away from the winter blues, look no further than Broome as your next getaway. It's only taken me so long to visit this breathtaking town. From the minute you touch down at Broome International Airport, you know you've left winter behind. All the airport ground staff are in shorts and summer shirts, and sporting deep tans.
Our first evening in Broome is unforgettable.

Handy Tips for Perth Backpackers
I backpacked around Perth for ten months last year; it quickly became one of my favourite cities in the world. If you're going out on a working holiday VISA, it's a place that's friendly and easy to find work, with a wide range of backpackers accommodation, great night life, beautiful surroundings and plenty to do.
If you can only spare one day to explore the beautiful city of Perth, then I hope you have some good walking shoes. With one day you can sample a bit of Perth’s metropolitan culture, history and natural beauty while enjoying the stunning weather that typically ranges from nice to amazing.Start your day off with a delicious breakfast at a neighbourhood cafe or at one of the many cafes along Murray or Hay Street Mall. Ask for a recommendation at the place you’re staying or check out our area or food guides to find a scrumptious place to begin your day.
The people behind Just Improvise, the specialist theatre improvisation company that have been entertaining and amazing audiences since 2000, are masters of making something out of nothing on the spot, as followers of their popular monthly Theatresports improvisation competition already know.
But from August 5, MC Glenn Hall and the Just Improvise gang take the art of theatre improv one step further, improvising a Green Room from the bowling greens at the Mount Lawley Bowling Club, located on the corner of Storthes and Rookwood Streets, Mount Lawley.
With Perth being the most expensive city in Australia, I thought I would share a few backpacker tips of how I survived on a shoestring last winter when my travel funds ran disastrously low.
Although it's an easy city to find work in, in the winter the hours are often cut in hospitality and construction jobs, which can mean a weeks’ worth of bad weather can leave you skint and with just enough cash for your rent.
Over the last decade, yoga and Pilates have becoming increasingly popular as a form of exercise and personal enrichment. Here in Perth, there are numerous studios offering a wide range of styles that run the gamete from traditional to more modern or fusion. If you are new to either yoga or Pilates (especially Pilates), you’ll want to sign up for an introductory session to ensure you’re using proper alignment as well as correct breathing techniques. An introductory class will also help protect you from many of the common injuries new practitioners acquire due to poor technique or pushing further than they should. Before you decide on a studio, you need to decide if you want to pursue yoga or Pilates.
