The south west of Western Australia is a region full of contrast: from limestone cliffs, to stunning Karri forests to pristine beaches to fine wine and food. There is literally something for everyone in this spectacular part of WA.
Here are some of my favourite things to do and places to go in the south west and great southern:
Just 15 minutes north of Seminyak, Canggu is considered by many to be the coolest place to hang out in Bali. But despite its ‘it’ status, Canggu has managed to maintain its laid back vibe and village lifestyle. A favourite among surfers, yogis and expats, there are almost endless accommodation options in Canggu.
Since we’re not really big resort kind of people, we opted for a villa rental during a recent trip to Bali. But after an initial Google search, I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by the number of villas for rent in Canggu.
I finally stumbled across the Villa-Finder.com site, and that’s when things started to look a whole lot more simple.
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.
So, I decided to check into the spectacular COMO the Treasury hotel and spend 24 hours unraveling the mysteries of the iconic buildings.
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.
