Perth and Fremantle Bike Tours
"Swan Valley Wine TastingThis relatively short and easy tasting tour isn't just about wine. There are opportunities to taste some delicious cheeses chocolate sauces jams and the totally unbeatable Passion-fruit curd. Get off the busy main road through the valley and ride deserted back roads past the vines often full of grapes (and maybe try a grape or two). Perth City TourAn option that always surprises especially locals who think they know Perth. Perth has so many hidden jewels from amazing street art and quirky statues
From AUD75.00
 
Small-Group History of Fremantle Walking Tour
"Originally a fishing port Fremantle has reinvented itself over the years to become a vibrant hub for local artisans – from micro breweries to fashion designers to cafes all wrapped up in a lively music scene. Meet your guide at the Fremantle Visitors Centre and step back in time as you start your walking tour at the Town Hall which opened in 1887 and has remained largely unchanged. This magnificent building has not lost any of its grandeur and charm over the years and continues to be a great example of 19th-century architecture. Next wind your way down the narrow streets stopping for photo opportunities and a bit of storytelling from your guide and walk along the Cappuccino Strip
From AUD45.00

Perth City Tips (14)

Live Music in the Shopping Streets

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!

Celebrity Encounter

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

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.

Friendly atmosphere

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

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?
