Things To Do In Perth

I have been living in Perth, Western Australia for the past 5 years and would like to share my views on places to go and things to do in Perth should you plan to visit:

Beaches:

Perth has some of the best beaches in the world, unspoilt white sands and blue sea. The views are stunning and every time I visit the beach it still amazes me how beautiful it is.

Cottesloe Beach is one of the most popular beaches, it is about 20 mins on the train from Perth City and is popular for swimming, surfing and snorkelling. Scarborough Beach is also very popular with surfers and swimmers alike but if you prefer to take it easy and just enjoy the view of the Indian Ocean there are plenty of cafe's to sit and enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine. The clean waters of City Beach & Floreat Beach are more popular for afternoon fishing and body boarding.

Watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean is second to none and is a great time visit the beach.

Food and Wine:

Little Creatures Brewery in Fremantle is one of my favourite places to go; it is set inside a massive converted boat shed on the fishing harbour. The atmosphere is always great and there is just a good vibe about the place. There wood fired pizzas washed down with a pint of real ale never fails to hit the spot! The chilli mussels are also very popular. There fantastic brews are made on the premises. Another reason why I always go back is for the service, the waiters are very friendly and you always get service with a smile. They also do not take bookings, you can just turn up and we have always got a table.

If you are more of a pub person then JB O'Reilly's Irish pub is just for you. Situated on Cambridge Street in West Leederville, the atmosphere is good and is a mix of ages. You can enjoy a meal in the restaurant towards the back of the pub and afterwards go down to the bar for a pint of guinness. There is good hearty food on the menu which includes beef & guinness pie, bangers & mash and fish & chips just to name a few. Bookings for food are essential especially on a Friday & Saturday to avoid disappointment. The staff are mostly Irish and you could be forgiven for thinking you were actually in Ireland! Great food, great service, great times!

The Lucky Shag Bar located on Barrack Street Jetty just on the edge of the city is popular with both tourists and locals. Set on the banks of the River Swan, the Lucky Shag at night offers a picturesque view of the glimmering lights from South Perth. They show all the major sporting events on the array of big screens and have some great music playing and DJ's on regularly. With the stunning Perth skyline on one side and the River Swan on the other, combined with a relaxed atmosphere the Lucky Shag is definitely a winner. The one thing I also like about this bar is it a mix of ages and everybody fits in.

City Bus Tour:

A great way to see Perth city is with an open top double decker bus tour. The tour will take you to Kings Park (which in itself alone offers great views), The WACA Cricket Ground, the Bell Tower and the Perth Mint where they make gold as well as many other places. Get your camera at the ready and snap away as you get see most of the best tourist attractions in this 1 & 3/4hrs bus ride.

Some Interesting Facts on Perth:

Perth is the capital of Western Australia and gets more sunshine than any other capital city in Australia.

Perth is the third windiest city in the world behind Auckland is at number two and Chicago at number one.

It was voted 8th in the top 10 of the Economists most liveable cities in 2011.

I hope you enjoy this fantastic city as much as I do!
