Sunbathed Easter weekend

Perth_CityBeach_4Easter is a great time to visit Perth as most locals are out of town. If the sun is shining, you’re more than likely to have most of the beach to yourself. This easter, Perth didn’t let us down, greeting us with two glorious sky blue days and the perfect excuse to check out City Beach.

Perth_CityBeach_1Perth_CityBeach_3Having being our home for some 30 odd years, Perth holds few surprises for us. But in the last five years or so, the city is going through a kind of re-birth, with new restaurants popping up every few months and the city slowly transforming into a place to hang out.

One new arrival is the revitalised State Buildings on the corner of St Georges Terrace and Barrack Street. Within the State Buildings houses the luxury hotel, Como Treasury, Telegram coffee, florist Aneura flowers, Petition wine bar and restaurant Long Chim, just to name a few.

The transformation is certainly impressive, blending heritage with a grand minimalist style. An easy target for photographers like me.

I was also eager to check out Perth’s street art project PUBLIC, which invites some of WA’s and the world’s best street artists to the city each year. These are some we spotted along Wolf Lane.
