Playing tourist in our home town…

Happy Australia Day!

Today we are playing tourist in our home town, sunny Perth, Australia.

It’s something we try to squeeze in whenever we can.

Take the time to take a drive, train trip, bus ride or walk to explore the place where we live. It is easy to become blasé about where you live, to start missing all the fab sights you see, because, well, you see them every day!

I gave Big A (my ever patient and lovely husband) a copy of Perth and West Coast Australia (Lonely Planet) for Christmas for further inspiration.

Have you ever played tourist in your home town?

The best way to start is to think about the last time you had visitors, and then run through the list of places which you think are ‘must sees’.  Sometimes it can be major attractions, other times it can be the ‘best place for coffee’, or ‘most picturesque swimming hole’.

Our hit list in Perth goes something like this:

  • Kings Park – some much to see, do, play, explore, and it’s right next to the CBD!  Check out Naturescape, Synergy Parkland, the walking/ hiking trails, Moonlight Cinema, skywalk, beautiful big boab tree.  The list goes on…
  • Cottesloe beach, Leightons, City Beach, any of the beaches really. Beautiful white sand, crisp water, awesome surf, not to mention watching the crazy/impressive antics of the kite surfers.
  • Swan River and Mathilda Bay – fab spot for a swim, picnic, dolphin spotting, walk, cycle, scoot.
  • York – a short day trip away from Perth to a sweet little town, filled to the brim with Instagram worthy shots of antiques, cottages, beautiful landscapes.

What are your top spots in your home town?

Enjoy xx
