A visit to Perth

We have just returned from a short visit to Western Australia to visit friends. The sunset from the plane window was spectacular.

Sunrise the next morning from Fremantle, where our friends live, was also stunning.

They live beside the sea and the winter weather was perfect for a walk on our first day.

Perth is a beautiful city. We enjoyed a walk beside the river at Elizabeth Quay, a relatively new area in the city.

I liked this terrace tucked into the facade of the building .

People living in the high rise buildings have a great place to walk.



There is an excellent choice of cafes and restaurants. We didn’t go hungry.

We were very impressed with the markets at Fremantle. There was something for everyone there, one of the best markets I have ever been to.

Our visit was only a couple of days. There is much to be seen in and around Perth, we will return soon.

The sunset over the ocean was brief but spectacular.


  1. Thank you for the great pics. Haven’t been home in 9 years! A great review. Getting ready now covid has lifted to go home and see the rellies.

    • Our visit was very brief, it was mostly to see friends. We loved the bits we saw and definitely need to go back.

  2. Lovely to see these photos! I used to live in Freemantle and had a stall at Freo markets. Pleased to see that it hasn’t lost its authenticity

    • The market was excellent. Many things found their way home with us. It was great to see such a well patronised market…lucky Fremantle.

  3. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. Perth is looking magnificent.

    • Perth put on a great show for us. I look forward to seeing more on a longer visit.

  4. Thanks for the great photos Deb. I’m very happy you got to see my home town and catch up. Stay longer next time, get down to Albany again. 😀

    • We will definitely stay longer. We have been promised a trip to Rottnest Island on our next visit.

  5. We look forward to seeing you back soon.

    • I look forward to it.

  6. Thanks for lovely views of Perth and surrounds, have a visit there next April,
    my first.

    • I’m sure you will enjoy visiting Perth. It is a fun city.

  7. Great photos of your visit to Perth, Debra. The sunrise and sunset are spectacular, literally brilliant. Welcome back to Oz, by the way.
    Cheers, Robyn

    • It is nice to be home for a while. Perth was great.

  8. Thanks Debra for the fabulous photos of Perth, they make me want to visit again! I always thought the architecture and homes just superb, and also the gardens. Your sunset photos are wonderful.

    • Perth was fun. We need to go back for a longer visit. This trio was really about seeing friends.
