It’s just the beginning…

** This post is also the ‘About’ Section – follow us on Fbook/Twitter to get updates of the first proper posts ;)**

When travelling it’s hard to know where the good stuff is in a city. Sure there’s event sites, Google searches and that recommendation from the drunk Irish girl you met in Slovenia but sometimes you just need a local to show you round.

This is what this blog is all about.

It’s Perth* – specific.

* larger metro area included e.g. Fremantle, Joondalup, Midland and all the other suburbs I’ve left out

When Perth is mentioned in conversation some common responses are:

‘I almost made it there’

‘It was just out of my budget’

‘Is that near Sydney?’

SO, if you’ve realised Perth is not near Sydney, and is worth checking out – we’d like to show you some of our favourite things :)

This is not an events blog OR a comprehensive listing of all-things-Perth. If you’d like links to some of these they are pasted below. Instead we hope this blog will slowly (because we’re fairly relaxed about deadlines here ;) ) collect some of Perth-peoples favourite things so that you can find them too.

If something is listed here it doesn’t mean it’s the best or the only cafe/park/music night etc it just means that someone likes it, likes it a LOT. So you might too.

If you’d like to contribute and idea or article please contact bonniedavies@iinet.net.au OR paste on the Facebook Fanpage.

One thought on “It’s just the beginning…

  1. Thanks for the link! Good luck with the blog, I’ve subscribed! 🙂
    EnjoyPerth originally started as just a blog too, with the same idea as this, though it’s morphed into something a little different 😀
