Posts Tagged ‘King’s Park’

I shared a flat with a secondee from Denmark (Vy). Our stay in Perth has allowed us to explore some of the many sites of Perth. Here are a few we enjoyed:

  • King’s Park – one of the nicest/cleanest parks we have seen. Stop here for a beautiful view of the city and a stroll on the elevated walking bridge (Federation Walkway).
  • Fremantle – Fremantle is a hip town in Perth that has heaps of restaurants, bars and shops. We bought fruits and vegetables at the markets, went on a night tour of the Fremantle Prison and had to stop by Little Creatures Brewery for dinner and drinks.
  • Perth1Rottnest Island – About 20km from Perth, an island tour would include cycling to pristine beaches, snorkeling in clear water, and a chance to meet a few of the 10,000 quokkas that live there. The quokka is a cousin of the kangaroo and is one of the most photogenic animals on the planet.
  • Lancelin and the Pinnacles – Our first time sandboarding in Lancelin produced a few funny videos and even the best accountant wouldn’t be able to count all of the rocks at the Pinnacles.

  • Swan Valley – Wine tours are a must if you travel to Perth! The vineyards and wineries were beautiful and the river cruise back to the city was all smiles.

The work and the sites of Perth were new and exciting, but the people we encountered, conversations we had, and the lifelong friends and colleagues we made outweigh any of the pictures we put up on Instagram. The secondment program allowed us to step out of our comfort zones, jump into a new environment and experience a new life for four months.
