Even though the Vines is only half an hour from Perth city, when you arrive, you’ll feel like you’re miles from anywhere. The resort is immersed in an abundance of green, from the golf course to the surrounding bushland.

The State Buildings in Perth have undergone an amazing transformation as part of a $110 million restoration. But for many of us, negotiating what at first seems like a complex maze of new places to eat, drink, shop and play can be a bit overwhelming.

It's Perth's summer playground; with pristine beaches, stunningly clear water and that sunny island vibe. But as the weather gets colder, Rotto tends to drop off most people's getaway list as they head off in search of warmer destinations instead.
But this year as the seasons changed, I decided to stick it out to find out whether Perth’s favourite summer isle stacked up as a winter destination.
