    Myer: Where is the loo?

    by aussirose Updated Apr 25, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The worst thing about shopping is when you want to pee and can't find the loo. In Perth the most likely places are the railway station and Carillon City Food Hall, but you have to pay if you want to use these loos. So I'm going to suggest a couple of places that are accessable and free! In the Perth Murray St Mall, David Jones has the loos on the ground floor, near the food section and Myer has the loos on the below ground floor, down the escelator to your right, through the ladies clothes section.

    Guess this tip is now classed as a wierd and wonderful tip and chucked out there in google land. Check out the site below! Good for a laugh :o)

    City Gems: Gorgeous Jewelry

    by aussirose Updated Sep 20, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love this shop. It has gorgeous costume jewelry that is not too expensive. I bought this lovely bright green/blue necklass that really stands out. Looks like a New Zealand shell but it's only glass (shouldn't be tellin' you that should I :o) Anyway, I love it. If you look up in the left hand corner of the pic, you'll see something similar.

    Hay Street and Murray Street: City Centre

    by Purpleshade Updated Apr 1, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hay Street and Murray Street are pedestrian only areas, and together with their connecting arcades form a large pleasant shopping area.

    The big department stores are here (Myers and David Jones), they are deliciously air-conditioned , Myers is a delight to walk through. There ia a variety of large and small shops and cafes with tables on the pavement.

    We stopped at the Forum cafe which served good coffee (you can see it in the photo) and had delicious pies from the pie shop in The Plaza arcade just opposite.

    The Carillion on Murray Street has a large food hall with a multitude of meals at very resonable prices. Takeaways such as Hungry Jack's (Australian flame grilled burgers), McDonalds, and Red Rooster are also available here.

    There are often performing Street artists and other open air entertainments.

    In the side roads all around this area are more shops, restaurants and hotels.

    The free 'Cat' buses will bring you here from other parts of the city.

    What to buy: I particularly like Picadilly arcade which has lots of small jewellry shops, some with opals costing $1000's, other with semiprecious stones in silver for less than $50.

    My son recommends Electronic Boutique in Hay Street opposite the Plaza Arcade for computer and console games.

    My daughter likes the 'Miss Shop" section of Myers for fashionable clothing that doesn't cost a fortune, and the designer labels in the ladies dept are popular with many.

    For food supplies, there is a Woolworth's supermarket in Murray Street, we bought soft cheese from Margaret River with crab and prawns to have for supper in our hotel room. It also has a liquor store.

    What to pay: Whatever you want!

    Perth Mall

    by aussirose Updated Jun 14, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perth has two malls, Hay Street and Murray Street Mall. This is Murray Street Mall. Woolworths on the right hand side is the place to go for some food shopping if you are like me and don't want to spend all of your holiday money on expensive restaurants. Up ahead on the left hand side is a fantastic coffee place - Merchant....a good recommendation for the best coffee in town.

    The Margaret River Chocolate Factory: For Chocoholics!

    by Xemx Updated May 31, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being a chocolate lover, the Margaret Chocolate Factory was on top of my To See List. Whilst I didn't find the factory itself too interesting, I certainly did like the products that they make.

    There are two Margaret River chocolate factories: one in Margaret River and the other in the Swan Valley. As I didn't have time to go to Margaret River, I went to the one in Swan Valley.

    What to buy: Difficult to choose from....there is a wide selection. They also have samples which you can try before you buy. I bought the Redgum honey, the chocolate fruit cake, butterscotch sweets and some chocolates of course....I wish I had bought more of everything! Their products are simply delicious!

    What to pay: I forget how much I paid but it's a little more than average, however, well worth the extra cost.

    Harbour Town - For Serious Shopaholics :o)

    by aussirose Updated Sep 20, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    However if you are into serious shopping and looking for a bargain (other than weekend markets of course) then you need to go to Harbour Town.

    Harbour Town is located just west of the city centre on Wellington Street. Easiest way to get there is to catch the yellow cat from Wellington Street & get off at the Harbour Town stop.

    Below is a link to Harbour Town and what you might find there.

    Factory Outlet - Wellington

    by hobbes123 Written Jan 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Discovered this place. it's along the red CAT bus route. After u take the bus, walk downwards.. not towards the hill. Its quite quiet along there.

    There are quite a few factory outlets there- Esprit, Fils, Witchery, cotton on. In fact, it seems to be modelled after birkenhead point in sydney.

    Bought my touristy nougats there for only 18.95. Was a very good deal when most souvenir shops were selling for 25-27 in the city.

    Bought clothes too of course

    What to buy: Nougats at the factory outlet...

    What to pay: for clothes..they were abt 5-30 for tops

    All over the place: Shopping in Perth

    by stedeb Written Aug 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have some great shopping centres my personal favourite is Garden City at Risley St Booragoon. There are also other shopping centres/malls Carousel, Galleria just to name a couple.
    Markets in Perth are nothing like the English (my only other experience) markets or Paddy's in Sydney they are more "arty" types. There are some good little odds and ends to be picked up at Fremantle, E shed also in Fremantle then there is Subiaco and Wanneroo markets.
    The Hay St mall in the city has plenty of shops of all varieties.

    What to buy: There are heaps of little souvenir shops in the centre of Perth and at the E shed markets in Fremantle. They are cheap and unfortunately most of them are not made in Australia but if you want to buy a lot of souvenirs you can't go past 20 koalas for $2.50!!!!!

    What to pay: People are often surprised how inexpensive things are in Australia of course like everywhere we have shops that charge like a raging bull but overall from my travel experiences I find Perth and Australia to be quite reasonable.

    Dusk: Calming Candles

    by Gwynneth Updated Nov 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dusk is designed with creating an atmosphere in mind... the warmth of burning candles enhanced by moody lighting, sensual fragrances, and dreamy background music... make it a place you would like to emulate at home.

    On a day of hectic shopping I love walking in and having a look around for a while... Dusk's atmosphere and ambiance is a beautiful contrast to the rabble of the shopping malls.

    What to buy: Candles! Candle holders and other accessories. The In-store arrangements bring the candles to life in creative d?cor displays. Everything on show is available in-store so you know you can replicate that effect in your home or as a gift without any delays due to back-orders.

    Dusk is a wonderful place to find 'thank-you for letting me stay with you' gifts when you're on holiday and stopping with friends.

    What to pay: Something for every budget.

    David Jones: There's no other store like...

    by Gwynneth Written Apr 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    David Jones has an upmarket vibe with exclusive brands and designs hard to find here in Perth. Myer is their main competitor and this healthy friction has lead to a vast improvement from both of these Department Store giants.

    What to buy: Christian Dior
    j'adore - Eau de Parfum Spray  

    j'adore is radiant, sensual, sophisticated, a celebration of absolute femininity. Top notes of ivy leaves, mandarin orange and champaca flower, middle notes of orchid, violets and roses, and base notes of blackberry musk and amarante wood, combine to create a luminous floral bouquet.
