"Sensational Subiaco" Subiaco by Gwynneth

Subiaco Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 54 photos

Melbourne Cup in Perth!

When you can't make it to the 'real thing' there are always plenty of alternatives!!

The Advertising Agency where I design, always takes the whole day off for the Melbourne Cup! We book a table at the Subiaco Hotel and enjoy the race beamed LIVE on the big screen from Melbourne before sitting down to a 4 course luncheon and much flowing champagne!

Subiaco is best known for...

... catching up with friends! You can't go wrong here. No matter if its business or pleasure, Subiaco will have just the right place to set the event. For all of us here it was a VT meet and greet, so Oriels was chosen and as you can tell from this photo... we weren't dissappointed!!


... parking a car in any city inner suburb is always a challenge - esspecially if you're trying to meet up with someone and park somewhere near them so you can walk together.

Can you imagine our suprise (on our first VT meeting) at discovering at the end of the night we had all park in a row? Maybe to some this isn't such a big thing... but about 4 hours earlier we didn't even know what each other looked like in person let alone what car they drove!

Its all a little spooky! (but nice tee hee hee)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:So many good cafes to choose from
  • Cons:Trying to park when the 'footy' is on
  • In a nutshell:Subi is the meeting place for the real people of Perth
