Editor's Choice - The Beach House, Shoalwater Bay
By Lisa Monk

There are certain places that make you let out a sigh of relief as soon as you see them, knowing that all your holiday boxes have been ticked.  Well, the Beach House at Shoalwater Bay is definitely one of those. With its absolute waterfront location and stunning 180 degree view of the bay and its islands, this house is the answer to the dreams of every stressed, busy and wrung-out holiday seeker.  You could be forgiven for thinking that you are miles from anywhere, but the delights of Perth are only 40 minutes away, and the area abounds in things to do and see. The House was originally a “renovator’s delight” that the inspired and talented owners have turned into a retreat from the everyday.  With such a magnificent location it is the ideal place for a ...

Editor's Choice - The Painted Fish
By Lisa Monk

We really are spoiled for choice in Australia, not only because our country features so many different and wonderful landscapes, but also because there are accommodation operators like Shani Graham and Tim Darby, who have taken their love of art, nature and sustainable tourism, and turned it into a unique place to stay, The Painted Fish. Take an exceptional location like Fremantle, add a mixture of quirky accommodation and a commitment to a greener way of living, and you have a fascinating and sustainable place to stay for a break like no other. Shani & Tim had several goals when they conceived the idea for The Painted Fish.  They wanted to offer a haven from the noise and ‘busyness’ of the city to relax and inspire; provide short-term accommodation for travellers wi...

Perth Summer Holiday
By Sue Waters

Reclining with my sandy feet on the open window frame of a beachside bar along the coast of Perth, I sip a glass of cool local wine and indulge in one of the world’s truly most magnificent views. Beneath me the Indian Ocean greets the pure white of Cottesloe Beach. Two young boys paddle at the water’s edge, refusing to relinquish the summer’s day that is already giving itself over to evening.  The sun is now a disc of deep orange slipping into the ocean and throwing off a golden light against the darkening sky. It is still; the afternoon sea breeze didn’t turn up. Probably, like me it just decided to take a day off. A Perth summer holiday is about lazy days spent by the sea and warm nights strolling on the beach or dining in alfresco restaurants.... Read more
