Yep, I'm taking advantage of Melbourne Cup Day and using a day of annual leave to ensure a loooong weekend, but will forgo tottering around Flemington wearing a fascinator on my head - instead I'm leaving on a jet plane on Friday and visiting Perth for four days! Yay!
I've never been to WA before, but I'm going with Schatzi and her hubby M, who lived for years in Subiaco. Schatzi said that after all the times I've introduced her to my favourite spots in Melbourne, she's looking forward to returning the favour for me in her old 'hood... :)
Does anyone have any good Perth food/cafe/bar recommendations they care to share? These are completely uncharted waters for me. I think on one of the nights we'll be having fish and chips on Cottesloe Beach, but that's all I know at this stage!
