What stores (Groceries and Butchers) are available in Northampton? Looking at staying a week at Horrocks and keen to see where I can get supplies.
What places do you recommend taking tourist in Winter my family are coming over in
Does anyone know what days and times do the crayboats come in and allow people to buy crayfish off the back of their boats?
We will be in Perth, without a car on Sunday and Monday late in March. Needing advice on what to do and see there before we head off to the South West.
My partner and I (both 65) are looking at our touring options for going from Broome (or Derby) to Kununurra.
I (Bryan) would like to travel the Gibb River Road and even travel back to Derby or Broome via the main highway in order to see Purnululu / Fitzroy Crossing / Geikie Gorge. I don't make a hobby of camping but I have camped "out in the sticks" in the Northern Territory many years ago and I would happily camp again in order to travel the full length of the Gibb River Road.
My partner (Elizabeth) wants to have a bit more comfort at nights but we suspect we can't afford the prices for the private accommodations along the route or pay for one of the "luxury" tours. She would compromise on a camper van but I believe most of them are not suited to travel on that road. We have heard of 4WD campers and a search reveals they are available from Broome.
I would love to hear from anyone who has travelled that route, either: -
staying at resorts along the way
budget (camping tour)
and what they thought of their choice. Would they recommend doing it differently to what they did?
Also, what is the best place to get a useful map of the area? I wouldn't want to take a wrong turn and end up lost; (with Google Maps, for example, I have to zoom in to even make the Gibb River Road show and even then it doesn't show a lot of detail about the "tourist" destinations along the route.
Where can I buy large sea cucumbers (wet & dried) & Abalone in Perth?
Where is south beach port dennison access 4x4
Hi, my family are coming on this August for visit and located near to Victoria Park. Can anyone tell me what can we do on August. Can we crap fishing on winter? People said winter can't ho fishing and no crap.
Any events in August? My family members have two elderly and kids.
We want to go out for the day somewhere around Busselton but I have 2 dogs -where can we go? Besides the beaches where else can we go?
What did you think of the tour and attention to detail? Were the buses / coaches comfortable and appropriate of the area? Any information will be appreciated. thanks
is there any nightlife at all?
I am considering taking a cruise from Perth back to Singapore on the Voyager of the seas, Royal Caribbean. From what I understand, the cruise centre is based at Fremantle. Although there are the 2 of us, we travel really light with only 1 24" bag weighing about 15kg at most. As such, I am wondering how to get to the cruise centre by public transport. anybody done that before? appreciate any kind of help. thanks a lot

I'm an Irish girl (Early Thirties) travelling from Ireland, arriving in Perth on 5th of January, staying for 14 nights. I used to live In Perth a few years back so said I'd come back and visit. I'm pretty much going to be on my own for the duration of my stay... I know a couple of people that I used to work with are still based in Perth but it's looking like they will be busy most days between work and everything. I'm planning on staying in a hotel around the CBD area. Just wondering have you any advice for a lady alone in Perth? Things to do during the day? Things to do at night? Things NOT to do also! Will it be safe at night time? It's been a while so I don't know what Perth is like crime wise etc.! I won't be hiring a car so it will be public transport all the way.
Any tips for a lady on their own basically : )
I plan to drive from Perth to Broome and visit several spots: Pinnacle desert, Kalbarri NP, Monkey Mia and Shark Bay, Exmouth and coral bay, Karijini NP up to Broome where we plan to visit Cape leveque and Bungle Bungles on a guided tour

Hi, I'll be heading to Perth at end of Dec for about 6-7 days. It'll be my first time there with my mum and I plan to recce UWA as well since I will most likely study there next year. UWA seems a drive away from the Perth CBD and from all the hotels I checked out save for Captain Stirling. I will probably only spend one day to visit UWA so is it more convenient to stay nearer Perth CBD area or in Nedlands/Crawley area? Will the area near UWA be more sleepy since its Summer hols? I saw a few affordable hotels like Sullivan's and Good earth and also saw some available self contained apartments around the Rosalie area and shenton park area. They are all a drive away from UWA but if they are more convenient in other ways then its probably a trade-off that is worth it. Which of these locations would be most convenient for shopping, eating and touring perth (getting to various attractions)? I think the airport connect bus drops in front of the doorstep for Sullivan's and Good earth and both include breakfast. I read somewhere that the Shenton park area is quite happening. Also there are shopping streets on Murray street, Hay street and Kings street? I would prefer to stay in a hotel/apartment where there would be delis or restaurants a short walk away so that finding lunch and dinner would be easy. Preferably with a grocery store nearby (coles or woolworths?) and shopping nearby would be great! I thought that for a first-timer, maybe having breakfast provided and having a convenient start and end point for ground tours would be easier because I'm not sure how convenient it is to find eateries in Perth and not sure how to use Transperth either.
But I've been checking out the ground tours and they are pretty expensive! Maybe because we are there during super peak period. Any suggestions on how to get to visit the attractions in perth at a more affordable price? and which attractions are better? Since we only have a few days, have to really narrow down the attractions we want to visit. I think we would prefer those food tasting journeys (chocolate factory, farm trip, nougat factory etc.) to the sightseeing ones although we wouldn't mind both! =D Is Rottnest island mostly for water sports?
Also, is there any fun place to be on New Year's Eve? It'll be my first time counting down to the new year outside Singapore.
Regarding safety, anything to watch out for? since its just us 2 ladies.
Any help will be very much appreciated!! Thanks in advance!=)

what other look out place in busselton accept jetty ??????

I seem to recall a little inlet / beach where you could sit in the pub and watch the surf breaking up right up close. A lot of years ago, but I think it was around Margaret River itself or on the way from Perth to Margaret river. Any pointers on where that might be? Cheers, catblues

I planned to bring my two daughters to Perth this coming school holiday to visit Perth. It is our first time going there from Singapore. We planned to stayed there for 3 days. Is there any public transportation to city to and from the airport? And will the weather be too cold that it is a must to bring thick jackets?
Thanks in advance
What is the cycling like in Yanchep/Yanchep National Park? Is it much of a challenge? For example, are there any "climbs" or steep hills?
Will be grateful for some help here. The itinerary we have planed is this, (end oct):
Hotham steam train
Dolphin discovery centre
should we visit Freo during weekdays because it would be less crowded and everything will still be open? I prefer swan valley to be kept for weekends as some places are closed on weekdays. Is it right?
What time latest should we be driving?
Now I am wondering if I should stay around Mandurah for one night so I could visit the peel zoo, or the mall, after enjoying the steam train, before heading to Bluehills in Harvey. Is it worth to make a stop in Mandurah?
I have a headache about the car, whilst I do not wish to drive in Freo, but I have to pick up car from Perth , so either I plan it with a night stay in Freo where I can rest the car, (then drive the next day straight to boshack), or , during my stay in Perth without a car , take train to and fro Freo. What would you do if you were me? I have a two small ones below age of 5 tagging along (hence so much farm and animal stuff).
Last, my flights in and out are midnight (good for families and on budget), Any accomodation you might know of Which have comfortable lounges they don't mind us lying our boy down for his nap after check out on departure day?
Many thanks in advance,!!!!
