24 Hours in Perth


Perth has been boom town for a while, with an explosion of small bars, restaurants and galleries bursting onto the scene. A downturn in the mining industry recently has meant high prices for accommodation have lowered, making it more accessible for holidaymakers. This new Perth knows how to mix business with pleasure.  Here’s how to make the most of 24 hours in Perth:

07:00 Exercise is a sure fire way to combat jetlag. Checkin to Crown Metropol and checkout a bike to explore Burswood Park and the picturesque Swan River. Cycling and running tracks are easily accessible and bike hire available from leisure reception desk at Crown Metropol.

08.30 So many breakfast options to choose from in Perth that we consulted local breakfast queen, Liz Sheehan from The Breakfast Confidential. After much tweeting, we settled on Pure Bar in Subiaco a sunny breakfast spot by day and cocktail bar by night. With an extensive breakfast menu and organic coffee.


10.00 Art Gallery of Western Australia has staged some impressive exhibitions over the years, but its current coup is a standout. Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond: The World Reimagined is a stunning array of iconic works from MoMA. The exhibition is on show until 2 December 2013.

1.00 Head to CBD favourite Greenhouse for eats and drinks that are good for both you and the environment. With vertical gardens spilling greenery from walls and an abundant rooftop garden producing fresh ingredients for the kitchen & bar the vibe is eco-friendly style. For lunch, the menu is tasty and honest with items such as pink snapper, flatbread, walnut , tahini sauce, shaved fennel being a real crowd pleaser.

2.00 Enjoy a spot of city shopping and check out Venn, Australia’s newest art, design and concept space. Venn features an art gallery, design shop, artists’ studios and bar/café.


4.00 Just 15 minutes from the city, head to Cottesloe, a laid-back suburb lined with Norfolk Island Pines. This beachside suburb is a wonderful place to watch the sun sink into the Indian Ocean. Take a dip in the ocean, catch a wave or simply relax at a picturesque beachside café or restaurant along the coast. Cottesloe is a hot spot for Perth’s popular Sunday sessions, with The Ocean Beach Hotel and Cottesloe Beach Hotel drawing the crowds.


7.00 Glam it up and choose from a plethora of dining options at Crown Perth including Rockpool & Nobu, but our pick is Guillaume Brahimi’s Bistro Guillaume.  Contemporary, French décor with fresh splashes of lime green and harlequin floor tiles provide considerable style overlooking the Las Vegas style resort pool. We place our order with the French-accented waiter and the menus remain on the table as place mats, it’s hard not to keep reading and wanting more. We settled on Country style terrine for entrée, Confit duck for main and make sure you leave room for swoon-worthy desserts such as Valrhona chocolate and salted caramel tart.

10.00 Finish the night with a nightcap at new Champagne lounge La Vie perfectly positioned in the lobby for maximum people watching. If you’re feeling lucky, head into the casino for some 24/7 gaming action.

12.00 After a magnificent day of food, wine & culture rest your weary head on the luxurious beds at Crown Metropol, ready to do it all again tomorrow….
