Great place to get some fish and chips - the barramundi is especially tasty here. They have made it ideal for walking along in the evening to soak up that tropical atmosphere. It's also not far from Darwin CBD but on the other end of Mindil Beach area.

This has to be one of my favourite roads in Australia. I have my early travel memories from my childhood related to this road and what's around it. I recommend you hire a car and drive it. Beautiful scenery, wineries, eateries, gourmet produce, forest, coast, caves... it's all along here. It would take about 1-1.5 hours to drive between Augusta and Busselton, but there are so many distractions and detours along the way, that it can actually be a destination in itself. If you want to explore it, stay in accommodation in either Yallingyup, Dunsborough, or Augusta and just drive. Just be careful when driving because there are some places where the road is quite tight with sharp bends and speeding cars. Can you also find the "secret" cave.... (actually a big hole in the ground)? - hint: it's close to the well-publicized Lake Cave ;)

Outdoor shopping outlet mall. When it opened, it had more variety and actual bargains, but in the last few years, it has gone downhill with numerous stores closing or changing hands. Also, the prices are not any better than you can find in the actual stores around. Still, it's a short yellow or red CAT (free bus) ride from the centre of Perth. It's also not bad if you have something in mind. I find that luggage, shoes, and the surf stores offer the best variety and prices.

Great alternative to the Perth Zoo. It's about a 35 mins drive from Perth. The great thing about Caversham is that there is a greater focus on Australian animals and also you can interact with them much more closely than in the Zoo. It's on the expensive side but enjoyable for a relaxing afternoon. Good for kids as they can pat kangaroos and get close to wombats, koalas and other Aussie creatures!

Really, really fun place! Make sure you do the "Duck" tour. The guide is humorous and makes the tour even more fun than it already is. Afterwards, check out the tropical fruit tasting area and just enjoy the rainforest. It's also not over-crowded or developed which is nice. It has kept its purity.
