"a laid back capital city in southern hemisphere" Perth by ukirsari

Perth Travel Guide: 2,300 reviews and 4,852 photos

"this city was founded on the 12th august 1829 by the felling of a tree near this spot" that's what i'd read at the town hall, city of perth.

never across in my mind, this vibrant and laid back city can be so accessible by foot. i mean i assumed the roads will be so huge and lots of cars parked in every corner of the streets. but i was wrong. even there's available free service buses called "cat" [yellow, green and blue], i prefer to walk from northbridge to downtown and vice versa every single day. since i love the old buildings that remains here.

hoping will be here again someday!

further afield to the northbridge

one of my fave activities in the morning is walking along from robinson avenue [the place where i live during my stay in perth] to st george's terrace via william street. it's cool. with a cool breeze in the wintertime.

lots of cafes and resto [including italian and asian cuisines] showing their capabilities in dressing up old buildings into cozy dining places.

one of them, oh ... can not help but smile. this aida thing! there are two sphinxes in front door which remain me to my trip to luxor with my beloved ones and there's sheesha table [for smoking] inside and interior from 1001 nights. this picture i would like to dedicate for beloved aida [vt member asianbelle]

my first sunset in southern hemisphere

refer to the fact that i can not visit my lovely pinnacles at nambung national park in the evening [i can only have half day in there, join with a local tour], i try to catch a beautiful evening sky whilst i am in the plane. it's superb. my first sunset in southern hemisphere.
