This Blog was started in October 2010.
When travelling it’s hard to know where the good stuff is in a city. Sure there’s event sites, Google searches and that recommendation from the drunk Irish girl you met in Slovenia but sometimes you just need a local to show you round.
This is what this blog is all about.
It’s Perth* – specific.
* larger metro area included e.g. Fremantle, Joondalup, Midland and all the other suburbs I’ve left out
When Perth is mentioned in conversation some common responses are:
‘I almost made it there’
‘It was just out of my budget’
‘Is that near Sydney?’
SO, if you’ve realised Perth is not near Sydney, and worth checking out – we’d like you to know some of our favourite things
This is not an events blog OR a comprehensive listing of all-things-Perth. If you’d like links to some of these they are pasted below. Instead we hope this blog will slowly (because we’re fairly relaxed about deadlines here ) collect some of Perth-peoples favourite things so that you can find them too.
If something is listed here it doesn’t mean it’s the best or the only cafe/park/music night etc it just means that someone likes it, likes it a LOT. So you might too.
If you’d like to contribute and idea or article please contact firstname.lastname@example.org OR paste on the Facebook Fanpage.
