petunia travels // Perth + King's Park


to see the first part of our trip, Singapore, click here.

I'm so excited to be sharing these pictures from our time in Australia with you!
We visited Perth, West Australia, and it was so beautiful there.
Even the weather was perfect for walking everywhere we went!
{just a note: all of our pictures are from our iPhones,
and I didn't edit any of them beyond resizing them for the blog}

our plane landed in Australia pretty late & we were exhausted,
so we slept in and headed out for "breakfast" at lunch time. ;)

coffee is always a priority for us, so we went to a cafe-style restaurant
called Dome - it ended up being our favorite place for food while we were there!

pretty much every restaurant in Perth had "famous" fish & chips,
so the hubby decided to have some for lunch - I think he ended up having it
(at different restaurants) like 5 times while we were there!

{first kangaroo sighting, ha!}

after breakfast/lunch, we went off into the city to do a little exploring.
I had heard that King's Park was beautiful, so we started that way first.
there was a kind of a short cut through to the park called Jacob's Ladder,
and we figured the stairs couldn't be *that* bad...
well, there were about 1300 stairs.
we were pretty exhausted by the time we got to the top!
the view was gorgeous, but we ended up just laying in the grass
for a while to recover before walking through King's Park. ;)

{the grass in Perth was gorgeous; almost like a golf course!}

we really enjoyed the park & seeing the whole city spread out below us.
I feel like it was a good start to getting acquainted with Perth.

Looks like a great adventure. I wouldn't have been able to pass up fish and chips either :)
