Subiaco, or Subi is a place where the Aussies come by to chill. This township has numerous pubs and restaurants, and also houses Perth's largest Aussie Rules Football complex. When I was there, Australia was playing England (If you need to know the result, England won!).
But what I want to talk about is their market near Subiaco train station. This is where you can load your luggauge with interesting knick-knacks, while at the same time, buy fruits and even have lunch there.
Every City has a place to go that has quaint Cafes, lovely Restaurants and ritzy boutique clothing shops. Subiaco is the place to go in Perth. Subiaco is also a good place to visit the markets on the weekend. To get there just jump on a Fremantle train from Perth and Subi is just a few stops away.
Subiaco is a nice suburb with is probably best know for the Subiaco Oval, the place to go if you want to watch Aussie football (have to do it next time!!!!).
But it's also nice just to wander around, have a look at the shops and have a drink in a pub.
It's easily reached by train from the city.
With the sun beating down on your face in the cheap seats behind the goals and a beer in your hand then the AFL games at Subiaco Oval watching the Freemantle Dockers is a great Saturday afternoons entertainment.
At about 22 Aus dollars a ticket, it is cheap as well!!
Halfway up Rokeby Road on the hill is the Subiaco Clock Tower. The Subiaco Museum – which is an old electrical sub-station, is right next door. In the museum you will find objects and documents which traces the beginning of the Nyoongar (local Aborigine’s) in the area.
