Perth Journal – Part 3 (Perth City)

This is the final part of our Perth journey.

We departed from Margaret River and drove another 270km to Perth City. After staying in Fremantle and Margaret River for past few days, we were more or less confident and able to navigate Australia roads. We reached Perth City and checked into our apartment.

We took a stroll around Perth City. Surprisingly, we did not enter any of the shopping malls. We did some window shopping along the walkways. Most importantly, we wanted to observe the building structures and layout.

Next, we visited Chinatown. It is situated near to Roe Street and William Street.

We tried the Chinese delicacies. The portion was big and it was delicious. The price of the food over there was twice or third of that in Singapore.

The next morning, we brought the kids to the park and playground.

We visited King’s Park. This is a must-visit attraction in Perth.

Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. It is rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture and offers innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education.

Kings Park is home to the spectacular Western Australian Botanic Garden, which displays over 3,000 species of the State’s unique flora. Two thirds of the 400 hectare park is protected as bushland and provides a haven for native biological diversity.

Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Swan and Canning Rivers, the city skyline and the Darling Ranges to the east. Bushland walk trails, immaculate gardens and parklands and a variety of children’s discovery play areas can all be found in Kings Park. The Visitor Information Centre, free daily guided walks, Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop, cafes and public transport are easily accessible.

On our final day, we paid a visit to our friend who is staying in Perth. To an Australian, maybe the size of the house is average to them but to Singaporeans like us, we were very impressed and wished we were staying there!

Look at the big porch.

Beautiful and well-thought layout.

The corridor…there were up to 5 rooms.

We entered the living room.

It has an open kitchen concept.

Spacious layout.

This wrapped up our week’s long Perth trip. My Dad has visited many parts of the world. However, he commented Perth was the best place he has travelled yet due to the laid back and quiet lifestyle. We hope to be back to Perth again one day.

After reading our blog on Perth Journal, do you feel like migrating to Perth

I hope to blog on migration to Australia. Are there any Singaporeans in Australia out there willing to let us have an email interview with them?

If you are interested to visit or find out more about Perth, this video gives a good review:
