The Perth Walkabout Monthly Wrap is published at the start of each month to provide a snapshot of articles that hit the headlines in the last 4 weeks.
Here is Perth Walkabout's Monthly Wrap for the month of December:
Located along the north side of the Walpole Inlet, this small country town offers countless attractions for anyone enthusiastic about or even marginally interested in the outdoors. To get to Walpole, drive south from Perth along the South Western Highway for about 420km or head east from Demark for 65km.
A great first stop when you arrive in town is the Walpole Visitor Centre.
If you ask someone in Western Australia to name an endangered species, they’re usually pretty quick to respond with something exotic like a tiger or panda. Sometimes you might be lucky to get an Australian animal. A Tasmanian Devil for instance. Or a Koala. But what if you ask them about something closer to home? How about the Numbat?
It is a brave and confident person who travels to a new country without at least one guide book tucked into their suitcase or backpack.
You know the ones I mean? Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Fodors, Frommers. The list is endless.
But what if you want to dig a little deeper and learn something about the country you are travelling to beyond the bare facts and currency exchange rate?
For a gourmet wine and food lover, Margaret River in the South West of WA is a haven in which they can pamper their senses and indulge the senses. The area has established a reputation for itself over the past decades, a fact affirmed by the international awards that were given to different wineries, restaurants and cafes. If you are interested in discovering what fine wining and dining the South West has to offer you, read on.
You know how some things can hide in plain sight? enex100 in the Perth CBD is one of those places. When I worked at one of the stores in enex100 the retail centre had been open over a year and we still had people regularly commenting that they had no idea it was open before they walked in. Once you discover it for shopping in the Perth city, you’ll find yourself going again and again.
Shark Bay – Monkey Mia Dolphins, Stromatolites, and More
The Shark Bay World Heritage Drive along Western Australia’s coral coast takes you on a journey from ancient stromatolites to the world-famous dolphin centre at Monkey Mia and thoroughly deserves its World Heritage status.
The road trip can begin or end at Monkey Mia so if you are travelling from Perth and are short on time, you may wish to fly into this small resort and then take to the road.
Stay tuned to Perth Walkabout to explore our beautiful city of Perth.
