    Live Music in the Shopping Streets

    by Kathrin_E Written May 11, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Australians love music as much as people everywhere else in the world. The invention of the MP3 player, however, is not yet known down under...

    [/nonsense modus off]

    The lively pedestrian streets in Perth City, Hay Street and Murray Street, become open air stages when street musicians and other performers put on their shows. Best during peak shopping times like Friday afternoon and Saturday. Get yourself an icecream, smoothie, milkshake and watch and listen...
    If you enjoy the performance, throwing a coin into the hat or whatever the busker has put up is just fair!

    Things to do in Perth

    by aussirose Updated Sep 20, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perth

    Favorite thing: Visit Kings Park
    Go by ferry to Freo
    Jump on a free cat bus
    Take a day trip to Rotto
    Get a day train/bus pass and go
    to Hillaries Boat Harbour
    or Mandurah
    Watch a sunset on a northern beach.

    Fondest memory: Outside of Perth -
    The Pinnacles.
    Yanchep National Park.
    Guilderton.
    Twilight Beach, Esperance.
    Wave Rock, Hyden.
    Cape Le Grand National Park.
    And sticking one foot in the Indian ocean and one foot in the Southern Ocean at Augusta.
    Monkey Mia, Pinnicals & Broome.

    Ps. Often wondered why WA is full of 'Up' towns? There's Manjumup, Coolbellup, Joondalup, Myalup, Yunderup, Yallingup, Wattleup, Boyanup, Quindalup.
    I could go on forever. Perhaps they wish they were 'up' ...... in Qld? Haha ...lol.

    Jami Lee and Jamie Durie

    Favorite thing: What brought him his fame?

    In 2001 Jamie received the Logie for Most Popular New Male Talent and Backyard Blitz won the Logie for Most Popular Lifestyle for two successive years in 2001 and 2002.

    Jamie, originally from Manly in Sydney, spent much of his childhood in the mining town of Tom Price in north Western Australia before moving to the Gold Coast where he completed high school.

    He spent the next eight years travelling and working overseas in Europe, Asia and the United States where he had a successful modelling career.

    Jamie is an accomplished gymnast who has performed in cabaret shows as an acrobat and trapeze artist and with the troupe Manpower which he also managed between 1990 and 1996.

    Between 1994 and 1996, Jamie trained with some of the cast of Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and mastered a specialised trapeze movement, the Russian flying act.

    In 2001 Jamie relished the chance to again explore the world of Cirque du Soleil and hosted the one-hour special Cirque du Soleil – Alegría for the Nine Network.

    Jamie featured in James Houston’s photographic art book, Raw, which was shot on location throughout the United States. He has also appeared in commercials and twice been a Cleo bachelor.

    His television credits include hosting Dig This, a series of short gardening programs for Foxtel, and One West Waikiki, from the maker of Magnum PI, Glen A. Larson, in which he appeared alongside Cheryl Ladd.

    On returning to Sydney in 1997 Jamie established a landscape design business, Patio, which provides landscape design for commercial and domestic gardens in Australia and internationally, with clients in the United States and Hong Kong.

    Jamie has completed a four-year Associate Diploma in Landscape Design from Ryde Horticultural College.

    Fondest memory: Fondest memory would be when my daughter and I met up with him at the Burswood Spring Home Expo 2003.

    City Centre

    by Cabana_Boy Updated Mar 31, 2003
    Perth city centre...

    Favorite thing: Although there aren't as many bars/pubs as in Northbridge, the City's Center offers a lot of off beat restaurant choices with some nice pedestrian walkways. There are also a ton of shops with just about everything one could want, both practical and touristy.

    Favorite thing: Check out the sites and sounds of Perth City, including Hay St. Mall, London Court, Perth Mint. There are frequently very entertaining street performers in Murray St.
    Kings's Park gives spectacular views of the City and Swan River not to be missed.

    Fondest memory: Cruising on the Swan River.

    Hay Street, Perth

    Favorite thing: You find skyscrapers in the CBD of Perth, but only a few minutes walk and the streets look like this - friendly, a bit old-fashioned, inviting.... I loved that.

    Facades

    by phil_uk_net Written Oct 14, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Old buildings

    Fondest memory: Where old buildings have been demolished, just the facade has been left. Presumably these will remain in place as a new building is built behind?
