In October 2017 I was lucky enough to tag along with the tennis player on a work trip to Perth. He was at a two-day conference and we added another day to the trip so we could see a bit more of Perth and surrounds (we went on a bus trip to Margaret River). Obviously, I saw a lot more than he did as I wasn’t at the conference so was able to play tourist, but on my own. It was a fleeting trip but as much that could be crammed into it was and it was fabulous!
When I returned home I was sick and then my Dad had a fall and life as I knew it ceased to be as we lived for just over six weeks in a world of hospital visits and an emotional rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, and then we sadly lost Dad in the very early hours of 2 December 2017.
So, I never got around to sharing my trip to Perth (or any of the hundreds of photographs I took) here on the blog. Now, almost 3 years later in the midst of a global pandemic, I’m so tired of always writing and talking about ‘that C word’. So, I thought now is a good time to go through all the Perth photos and share the fabulous trip we took to the other side of Australia and the very first glimpse we got of WA. Perth – you’re so beautiful and I want to see more!
I have far too many photographs for one post so I’ll break the trip up into as many posts as are needed (probably around 3-4). Today, I’ll start with the city of Perth. Today’s post will contain just a handful of the many photographs I took (some with my DSLR camera and some with my phone) around Perth City. Some were taken walking around on foot but most were taken from the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour I did one day. I’ll save the photo’s I took of Kings Park and Elizabeth Quay for separate posts as they both deserve a post of their own.
As this trip was quite a while ago now, I really don’t remember what all the buildings are so there will be limited captions. However, if you know what something is that isn’t captioned please let me know and I’ll go back in and add captions where appropriate.
By the way we stayed at the Perth City Centre Holiday Inn and it was fabulous! The room was clean and comfortable and it was in a perfect central position in Hay Street, surrounded by great cafe’s and restaurant options.
