I am one of those people who are lucky enough to live in Applecross. It is the best location in Perth, and I love being a 15 minute train and walk from the city, a 30 minute bus ride to Fremantle and five minutes from the river.

Perth is so much more than just a stopover city and offers some of the very best attractions Australia has to offer, without the crowds of Sydney and Melbourne.

So, here I will guide those who feel the same to some of my favourite bars and cocktail lounges in Perth that will make you feel just right.
Are you wanting to buy local and searching for locally sourced products in Perth?
Many people are becoming more conscientious about how their food was grown or raised, but another, arguably more important, factor to consider is where the food comes from.
I’ve compiled a list of some of the places around Perth where you can find locally sourced products to help you get started.
If you’re a history and cultural buff who is planning a trip to Australia, you’ll probably be itching to add a good Australian book or two to your collection to whet your appetite. There are many to choose from, but which ones are worth carrying around in your luggage?
