Day 1 - Mt Lawley, Chidlow


Head into Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley, one of the trendiest cafe strips in Perth, to mix it with the locals. Try Lawley's Bakery for a fresh lunch, then browse your afternoon away at Planet Books. Cross the road to Exomod for coffee and relax before you head east to Karakamia in Chidlow, in the Perth hills. Here you can spend the evening bushwalking and spotting native animals in their own habitat.

Day 2 - Marmion, Perth, West Leederville, Leederville


Drive up the coast to enjoy a delicious breakfast overlooking the Indian Ocean at the Wild Fig Cafe, and perhaps a stroll on the beach. Back in town, check the latest art scene at PICA in Northbridge and grab a bite at a food hall. Then make your way to Leederville and circumnavigate Lake Monger with all the exercising locals before catching an alternative film at the Luna Leederville cinema; finish the day with a coffee at Villa Cafe or another of the great spots along Oxford Street, Leederville.
