Park
“Perth’s most iconic tourist attraction: sweeping views of Perth city and the Swan river. Take a picnic blanket and your favourite book for a relaxing afternoon in the sun, or pack your joggers and earphones and explore the 8km circuit around the park through native bushland and botanical gardens. One of the most scenic jogging trails in Australia. Easily accessible from my apartment by free bus or by foot.”
