We left the Indian Pacific Railway in Perth. Perth is in Western Australia on the Indian Ocean. Perth is a rather isolated city. While Perth is the capital of Western Australia, it is closer to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia than it is to Canberra, the capital of Australia. Traveling west from Perth, across the Indian Ocean, the first country is South Africa. We really like the people and independent spirit of Perth. We took the free city bus and walked around the city. We are not sure what this signifies, but we liked the blue pattern.
Of course, the humans were very interested in Margaret River Chocolates.
Always a good choice! Mom had to put this photo of the Salvation Army building in here.
It is one of her favorite charities in Denver. We saw the fire station, but not the fire trucks?
This large venue, with the unusual architecture, caught our attention.
We walked through this city park.
We love the stream and the lake.
Of course, all great parks have plenty of green grass.
This Bell Tower near the docks, offers food and souvenirs.
We will be returning to the docks tomorrow. Wow! A boat trip. The mural, or street art, is colorful.
We like old buildings, also, so Mercedes College was admired.
Perth has beautiful old cathedrals, like St. Mary’s Cathedral.
Perth has wonderful pedestrian malls. Hay Street andMurray Street are the two main pedestrian malls. This green sculpture marks the beginning, or end, of a pedestrian street.
In addition to great shopping, we liked this statue on the mall.
This clock was also fun.
Every 15 minutes the clock would chime and the figures on the clock would move. Perth is great city. We liked it a lot and we think you would like it also.
