My one and only visit to Perth was a spur of the moment trip (pre kids clearly!) when I happened to see a airfare sale and great hotel deal for Perth on the same day. 

My new boyfriend (now husband) and I spent a week exploring Perth and surrounds. I loved the stunning beaches, relaxed vibe and cool bars and cafes. 

Fast forward 5 years and a lot has changed for me – and I’m sure in that same time a lot has changed for Perth. That’s why I called in three mamas with inside knowledge of Perth to share their tips. Huge thanks to Jessica Smith, Rayne Embley and Jasmyne Summerfield for their time and tips.
