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 OR paste on the Facebook Fanpage.

Plus if you’re looking for something to do or want more information overload then there are some killer sites with loads of listings here:

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 😀
