Perth Destination City Guide
By Emily Pollard

Perth, while a long way from anywhere, is a fabulous place for shopping, going out and enjoying amazing weather! Perth is ‘BIG ON BREAKFASTS’! So make sure you get up early, go for a run along the beach and then have breakfast at either John St Café at Cottesloe, or Beaches on Marine Pde, Cottesloe.

Buccaneer Archipelago
By Adrienne Costin

The Buccaneer Archipelago is a stunningly rugged area off the Kimberley coast in Western Australia, consisting of up to 1000 islands. The scenery is spectacular with secluded white sandy beaches, patches of rain forest, mangrove estuaries, plunging cliffs, indigenous rock art and hidden reefs that litter offshore waters. Situated approximately 2800 kilometres north of the Western Australian capital of Perth, its distant location has meant it has remained an unspoilt and remarkably pristine location to explore and experience. Tides of up to 11 metres are among some of the biggest in the world, and certainly the largest in Australia. In some places they are treacherously strong and unpredictable, surging up rivers and ripping through inland passages. These tides create such phenomena as... Read more

Esperance - Natural Beauty
By Western Australia

  At Lucky Bay in the Cape Le Grand National Park, even the kangaroos appreciate the sun, sand and water.  They are regularly spotted lazing beachside and keeping visitors at the nearby camp ground entertained. While a trip to Esperance is worth it just for its magnificent coastline there is much more to see and do. There are four national parks within easy reach of the town – Stokes Inlet, Peak Charles, Cape Arid and Cape Le Grand. Bushwalking, camping, fishing and bird watching are popular activities and there is plenty of four wheel drive action to be had – some of the best is along a stretch of pristine beach in Cape Le Grand National Park. You can drive yourself, but for local knowledge and country style hospitality jump on board the Aussie... Read more

By Lisa Monk

The city of Perth is a gem nestled on the banks of the Swan River and its marvellous location is at the heart of the character of this most unusual of Australia’s capital cities.  The nearest large city to Perth is Adelaide, which lies over 2000 km away and it is this isolation that has allowed Perth to develop such a distinctive personality. Lying about 20 km inland from the sparkling Indian Ocean, Perth enjoys an unparalleled climate and is classed as one of only five Mediterranean climate regions in the world. Summers tend to be hot and dry, and most rain occurs in winter, however the temperatures still hover around 18-19 degrees C, so winter is still a fine time to visit. The city enjoys a wonderful quality of light, making it a favourite with artists and photographers. ... Read more
