30 minutes north east for Perth is the Swan Valley or 3 hours south and you are in Margaret River. Both regions are full of wine, beer and delicious local produce, with some considered some of the best in Australia and the world.

Driving (Because public transport just isn’t an option)

driving-perthHow often have you been on holiday or lived overseas and then come home and said ‘it’s great to be driving again’ or ‘it’s great to be able to drive anywhere’. If there is one thing Perthians love – it’s getting behind the wheel because the train/bus just isn’t an option.

High Priced Coffee

perth-coffeeNo, we don’t like paying $5 for coffee, however, we do like telling everyone about it when we aren’t in Perth. So deep down we secretly love it as it’s a conversation starter.
