plucky Perth

“It may not be a cultural mecca like Melbourne but don’t underestimate plucky Perth,” say Express Newspapers in Pommyland.

They’re a bit luke-warm on Shazzatown, though: “Locals love to hate “Freo” and the Freemantle Markets may offer a little too much “alternative” lifestyle for some people. There’s no shortfall of felt bags, handmade jewellery and melodic buskers here.”

But Cott gets the thumbs-up: “Cottesloe’s iconic sprawling sands, fringed with distinctive pointy Norfolk pines, sum up everything a great family Aussie beach should be.” Cott, of course, is “one of 19 within the city limits, with miles of white sand and clear waters as well as stupendous views across to car-free Rottnest (Rotto)”.

And don’t forget: “Join a Nannup guide whose family are direct descendents of the Wadjuk for a tour through the Southern Hemisphere’s largest green space, Kings Park, to learn about bush tucker survival and Dreamtime history. The native flora and fauna here, such as the mighty Boab tree, are magnificent. Don’t miss the park’s highlight, a stroll over the canopy of eucalyptus trees via a sweeping glass and steel aerial walkway (indigenouswa.com).”express

    They forgot to add if you are feeling homesick you can drive to Jindalee or Mindarie.

    Very few people realise Kings Park is actually larger than the Amazon rainforest. Apparently.

    Gotta hand it to them for deciding to use an old photo of Perth for the obligatory skyline shot. Can’t imagine a picture of just BHP’s Combine Citadel and a few building peeping out from behind it being that enticing.
