Perth ’17.

hellooooooo!!!! once again.

After so long finally, I am flying out of Singapore again for a short holiday.

And this time, it’s back to downunder. Last year around the same time, we were at Sydney. It was basically exploring the city by foot and public transport! It is different this time, we gamely challenged ourselves to explore the outskirts of Perth by car! It was really hard on my younger bro, A as he did the driving all by himself! There were trips that lasted 2 hours, 2.5 hours and then 3.5 hours! It was a daunting experience both for the driver and the passengers, because it was our first time driving by ourselves on a foreign land. Fortunately, it wasn’t the first time for A.

Whilst feeling bored on the plane, we entertained ourselves with selfies and whatnots.

We landed at Perth airport in the evening about 6ish but it was like 8pm in SG. We bought our prepaid sim cards, and collected our rental car and then we were headed for the rented apartment.

That was how our rented apartment looks like. It was so dark outside that we almost got lost at the neighbourhood before finally locating the apartment. Look at the narrow spiral staircase, that was the nightmare for 4 nights!

That’s A driving while I sat on the back seat.

Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park was a 2.5 hours drive from Perth city. And this is my first time entering a desert! Unbelievable and in awe of God’s amazing creation. Those standing rocks are limestones structures that have formed naturally from the surrounding environment 30,000 years ago. Read more at this link here.

This was Jurien Bay along the Indian Ocean drive. Magnificent view and there is a small fishing village town called Cervantes which you can pop by while visiting Nambung National Park.

Caversham Wildlife Park is a family run wildlife park with farm shows and animal feeding shows. You will get to see koalas, kangaroos AND wombats, and of course other animals. They claimed to have about 200 species on their website.

This was the scenic view we saw on our way back when we attempted to experience the zig zag drive. It was like driving on a narrow road round a mountain.

A very expensive but delicious lunch at the Watershed Winery with such a cool vineyard backdrop.

This was Kings Park and Botanical Garden in the Perth city. We had such a wonderful breakfast at the cafe in the park. This park was huge and it offers magnificent views of the Perth city.

So I have come to the end of this entry and hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I do. 5D4N was short and it could have been longer with more places to be explore but despite the tight schedule, A has shortlisted this places for its popular reviews written all over the Internet. Do share with me if you have visited other places which was equally as fantastic as these places.

Adios!
