Worst Destination

The Financial review by way of Pete F. And a possible reason. People returning from the 2008 Masters were spreading the word. “No fucking elephants, and we didn’t see unicorn one.” Thanks Ferdy and Adam G. Another reason? We have shops still selling videotapes and books. So last century. By Ljuke.

    anything’s possible in Perth…
    except finding a taxi after 11pm

    add your own

    that Taxi Ride is being broadcast on Saturday on Channel7, or maybe 9. The one with all the adverts.

    it’s to be presented by David Wirrapunda.

    what? were Natalia and Basil unavailable? Not even Ernie Dingo? No professional broadcasters available so they had to make do with an amateur?

    I expect some masterful shepherding across the back line


    • Grrr says:

      Didn’t we ban Ernie from the State for allegedly using corporal punishment in a school?

      Wirrapunda is probably just being groomed as the token, tame Traditional Owner so Nine or whoever can show diversity. That, or they might have actually found an eloquent footballer with an 18 charisma. I suspect the latter, adding some much needed authenticity.

    It strikes me that God has parted the Swan river so the people can all escape to South Perth.

    Possibly because of the of the anti-Semitic monkeys hanging off the buildings or just because they are being terrorised Father Christmas and flying pork chops day and night.

    That poster is so worst I want to peruse a larger version almost as much as I don’t. In fairness, Perth does have cheap shelves, apparently.


  5. Jaidyn-Jaxxon says:

    Adopting the native tunnel vision for a sec (required for even considering a trip to Perth) it becomes clear that the only real possibility is severe drought


  6. Pete says:

    Ljuke, that is some truly excellent worsting. Right under our noses.


  7. Pete says:

    Those unicorns they’re just crazy.


  8. Bill O'Slatter says:

    The buildit an they will come crowd have turned out to be false profits. There is a big secret about Dullsville : it is a long way away from the next available tourist mine.
    Tourists require energy to get here , the average one weighing over 100kgs, and the price of energy is going up not down. The vibrancy fix they get here is outweighed by the loss of cash.
    People fly here either for family matters or work.

    We have shops still selling videotapes and books.

    Not on Sundays we don’t.

    … and the men wore suits everwhere, the women dresses, & schoolkids went barefoot.


  11. Hi Worsters. You seemed to have enjoyed Postcard From Perth so much I’ve put another Perth feature up for you all.
    Sort of what Scorsese’s Taxi Driver would have been like if set in Perth, without De Niro and no violence or teenage prostitution.

    I’ve never been to Perth but thanks to your great blog I feel like I’ve seen the best (of the worst).

    Took that first punter from Alday St St James, along the new Kwinana Freeway, St Georges Terrace eastbound and then drops in on Kings Park Drive West Perth?
    All for $1.50 + 50c tip!
    More money for beers at the Broken Hill Tavern.
    Needs more cowbell.


    • Frank Calabrese says:

      And the reason why we need more Multipurpose Cabs in the City – and no – they aren’t just to carry 12 drunk bogans into Northbridge on a Saturday Night


  13. Pete says:

    A pie for lunch, lager at the Broken Hill for knock off & spin home along Bourbon St What a life these gentlemen of the road lead.


  14. B.T. says:

    Another 10 minutes well spent. And a $2 bill sighting!


  15. Bento says:


    These days any pick-up in St James or Rivervale would be asked to pay in advance.


We can handle the worst
