Perfect Perth

West coast adventures

View To Melbourne & Sydney & West tour & TO Perth & To Port Elizabeth on Lucy Hood's travel map.

Ok, so i'm officially rubbish at this blog thing! My new approach is going to be little and often so my lengthy descriptions (which i'm sure you're all enjoying!) will be saved for special occasions!

Arrived in perth after a very long day and jet lag, so had an easy first day involving a wander into the city, making dinner and going to bed! Over the next three days we went to Cottesloe Beach (recently quite famous because its where the held a memorial for Heath Ledger as it was one of his favourite spots), Got a ferry to Rottnest island (totally pedestrianised) where we hired bikes and snorkel stuff to explore and went to Kings Park outdoor cinema. We also had a few good nights out and made some good friends - particularly with one guy Paul who was in our dorm.

After many the lengthy discussions about how we were going to explore the rest of the west coast, we finally decided to book on an official tour which would take ten days (expensive but turned out to be worth every penny!). We then ended up with a few more days before the tour left so we hired a car and decided to head south for 3 nights and Paul decided to join us for a bit

We drove to Margaret river (a famous wine region), stopping off in in a village or two on the way...we managed to catch some of the West Oz Ironman race in one village which was awesome to see! In Margaret river we visited a few wineries and cheese factories as well as visited some amazing caves and beautiful beaches with some Irish girls we made friends with.

We stopped for a night in Bunbury on the way back to perth, went to the cinema to see New Moon (whoop!!) and also had our first close encounter with a dolphin - it swam about 2ms from us!!

Once we were back to perth we had a bit of a night out as a girl we'd met was leaving, then very late that night Mikey arrived so we had a quick hello before all getting to bed ready for our VERY early start ready for the tour (which Mikey also managed to book on!!
