Here is Perth Walkabout's Monthly Wrap for the month of March:
I travelled to Perth in 2009 as part of an Australian self-organised tour. I had been wanting to visit Down Under for too long, so I finally answered the call of my many friends I collected while travelling around the world. The idea of staying as long as I wished at my friends' houses, many of which were located in various parts of the country, thrilled me. It felt like I was embarking on a journey of continuous chilling out and staying in the good company of cool people.
In my world, and that of many women, a getaway is made even better when it is strictly ladies only.
Something about getting together with your best girlfriends and talking make-up and shopping without that male ‘roll of the eyes’ really is a treat.
What you are about to read is based on my experience in Bunker Bay, Dunsborough.
Four kids in Perth for a day? What should we see? I wasn't quite sure. Since 2009, we've been travelling around Australia in a caravan with our four kids, ten-year old Peter, nine-year old Susan, six-year old Lucy and three-year-old Edmund. Having only recently made it to Western Australia, this was to be our first time in the state's capital, and we weren't entirely sure what to see first.
We put it to our blog readers about what we should see, considering that we'll probably go back to Perth, but this time we only have a day.
Less than two hours from Perth travelling south on the Kwinana Freeway is a place known as the City of Three Waters. Bunbury is surrounded by water, situated on a peninsula that’s circumferenced by the surf of the Indian Ocean, the calmer waters of Koombana Bay and the shallow waters of the Leshenault Estuary.
Tourists and travellers are often pleasantly surprised by Bunbury, finding that it’s very different to how they had probably imagined.
Each year art comes to Perth’s Cottesloe Beach in the form of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, transforming the beachfront into a sculpture garden and showcasing the work of more than 70 local, national and international artists.
This is the first installment of a two part series about credit cards in relation to your Perth vacation. In this post, Michael will be addressing some basic questions about using your credit card in Australia as well as offering some tips to save you money while using them.
Before visiting another country, one of the most important things you need to know about is how you will pay for things once you get there.
In 2008, I attended my first blues and roots festival at the Fremantle esplanade. My hippy friend Meg dragged me along, and I remember having an epic time – it was when the festival lasted two days and I spent both days making new friends, taking lots of photos, dancing to music, sitting under the pines and listening to the most relaxed music. It was amazing, and a great introduction to the world of live music.
Things really can change dramatically in the time it takes to cook a pop tart, which is why it is nice to experience life like we used to. Like for instance, the Drive-In Theatre. They used to be all the rage. You know, like the one Sandy and Danny went to in 'Grease'. So it makes me happy to tell you that there is still one of these in existence in Perth. In fact, the only one.
Stay tuned to Perth Walkabout to explore our beautiful city of Perth.
