What to see and do in Perth, Western Australia.

Perth by Jo Castro

Amusing Perth

Perth. Western Australia. The most remote city in the world. Some say it’s sleepy, some say it’s behind the times. But I say, “Come to Perth and be surprised,” because it’s a city of many faces and quiet, beautiful spaces where you can expect the unexpected and be delighted by its variety.

Where are you? Why not hop on a plane and come visit? Have a look around for some holiday specials and see what you can find.

Did I mention Perth is easy to get around and not too congested? You know, the mining boom could change all that.

“A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one.” Aristotle (Ancient Greek Philospher, 384BC-322BC)

I hope Perth doesn’t get too populated.

Kings Park flower by Dave Castro

“Did you know…that when you walk past a flower, whether it be in
somebody’s garden or on a vacant hillside, the flower will always smile at you. The most polite way to respond, I’ve been told, is to cheerfully return the smile.”

    lovely photos brings back our visit vividly must go again and see the places we didn,t have time for!

  2. lovely images of Perth Jo. I guess as a “once resident” and “often visitor” I probably overlook Perth as a destination for me. However you can’t beat the views from Kings Park, and a walk along South Perth foreshore.

  3. Jill Harrison says:

    ps – love your kaleidoscope of images on your new header.

  4. Thanks Jill! My daughter, Emma did the logo and the header for me πŸ™‚ She’s done a great job in trying to brand Zigazag. But I’m thinking of changing it a little … using stronger pics and putting Zigazag on a black panel, in the middle on it’s own with 2 or 3 pics either side. What do you think?

  5. I know what you mean. When you’re a resident, you don’t look at a place with the same open eyes. Often you have to go away and be reminded by someone else of all that’s good. Thanks for your perceptions πŸ™‚

  6. I’m glad it brings back memories of your visit! Still so much to show you πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and have a say πŸ™‚

  7. jenny@atasteoftravel says:

    So there really are kangaroos in the street!!! A great selection of views and photos of Perth, Jo…something for everyone.

  8. He He! Just like there are lions in the street in Cape Town – well that’s what some tourists used to expect. But in Australia, Yes, they have it for real! Thanks Jenny πŸ™‚

  9. Tracey says:

    Everyone who loves remote travel should be worshipping Perth for all the reasons you say and because it offers a gateway the mind blowing landscapes of WA. Love the new header Jo.

  10. Thanks for the kind words, Tracey! And totally agree that Perth is the gateway to some incredible (and remote) landscapes.

    Hi Johanna

    These are some excellent icons to see and what to do when traveling over to Perth. I’m sold on the yummy treats you’ve posted πŸ™‚ would make the trip worth while! Thanks for sharing with us what we can see and do. cheers

  12. Jill Harrison says:

    yep – definitely like the Zigazag on black – but I think the print should be bigger, and I think you should move it one square to the left.
    ps – cute dolphin pic!

  13. Thanks, Jill. Your comments very welcome πŸ™‚ Will see if Emma can change it for me this morn.

  14. Glad you enjoyed it!

  15. What a gorgeous city I hope to visit in the near future! I think I’d be mesmerized by all the treats and lovely night views πŸ™‚
