1- Visit Rottnest Island

The Basin is on our list as one of the top 10 beaches in Australia. This is a stunning day out and only a ferry from the city. Grab a bike and explore the whole island, look out for a friendly Quokka and get involved with the selfie trend!

2. Eat at Lido on William street, Northbridge

They have amazing Vietnamese food and, even better, it’s BYO wine. Australia is well known for its eclectic mix of cuisines. Some countries such as the UK don't have a huge Vietnamese influence so it’s essential you visit this restaurant and enjoy their culinary delights!

Look at the Lido website for menu and details.

The home of the barmy army when the cricket is on! Located on the famous Swan river that runs through Perth, there are some fantastic river views to be had while you enjoy a hard earned drink after a long day exploring. The Lucky Shag can be found down the waterfront next to the new Elizabeth Quay. Lucky Shag information click here.

7. Have a coffee

If you spend anytime in Australia you will realise they take one thing very seriously, they are both connoisseurs and addicts of the black stuff. So this list wouldn't be complete without our favourite cup of coffee in Perth. Head to Little Willies on William Street Northbridge, arguably the best cup in town. Grab a take out and wander the vintage shops up and down this part of town. Perfect for a relaxing Sunday afternoon!
