are you still going for MR day trip?
Back in Singapore already. Aiyo it's soooo hot in here. Wish my trip was longer.

In the end i did not go to MR.

My summary of itinerary as follows. Will not repeat day 1-3 as its already in the earlier posts.

Day 4 (Swan Valley Area)
- Margaret River Chocolate Factory in Swan Valley
- Mandoon Vineyard
- Windarra Honey


Day 5
- Fremantle Market
- Let the kids play at the big playground at Esplanade Park at Fremantle (I parked my car at the open carpark beside the park anyway)
- Drove to Perth City to eat oyster at The Oyster Bar Elizabeth Quay
- DFO Perth (Direct Factory Outlet)

Perth City is their CBD area. When i drove in, the area reminds me of our Tanjong Pagar / Raffles City vibe.

Finding parking in Perth City is not easy and their parking charges is expensive.
I parked in a sheltered carpark for 2-3hours and the charges amount to AUD21!


Day 6
- AQWA The Aquarium Of Western Australia
- Coastal drive back to Fremantle, to enjoy the beach and sea scenery and also impromptu stops at the beaches
- Late lunch at Kailis Fish Market (In Fremantle)
- Fremantle Market - Just because we fell in love with the coffee there where they allow you to choose your coffee beans!


Day 7
- Brunch at Nic & Kilo
- Back to Perth Airport and then back to SG


All in all, i thoroughly enjoyed our 7 days trip to Perth. We are already looking forward to next year when we planning to visit Perth again in the Aug/Sep period.

Next trip, gonna be heading further out to MR, Busselton and Albany and also will be re-visiting a few of the places again!

Scenic. Remote. But nice. Really scenic

Haha. My boy took the train last yr. And this time though they were attracted to the playgrounds. Last yr they were under renovation. Hehe.

This trip got 3 kids. So they all swamp the playground. Hehe. Even my mum amd dad aint impressed by the jetty but marvelled at the excellent playground hehe. They did walked a bit on the jettt while me n wife babysit these 3 kids with my sis as well. Hehe.

Lunch in goose is nice too. Hehe.

Actually if you're driving, can stay almost anywhere.. airbnb aplenty is those areas..

Mosman park is a nice suburb, near beach and swan river, also next to Fremantle..
