If Sydney is analogous to New York City on Australia’s East Coast, Perth is Los Angeles’ twin on the West Coast. We weren’t expecting a sophisticated metropolis with skyscrapers, a busy harbor, sculptures, shopping streets, and a large variety of restaurants and cafes. It was crowded, busy, and beautiful.
For lunch, we tried a Toasty – Australia’s answer to a panini sandwich. Sitting at a cafe on Elizabeth Quay, watching the boat traffic on a warm, sunny day, and eating like an Australian made our day in Perth a perfect day. The train ride from Fremantle took just 30 minutes, and cost a whopping $3. The station is in the middle of all the city’s excitement and best attractions. We only had a few hours, but our tiny taste of the city was rich enough that we intend to return in the future to partake some more.
