Visiting Perth, Western Australia on a budget? Need some ideas that won’t mean dipping into your wallet? Here are a few things to see and do that I did during my time in Perth that didn’t mean breaking the bank!
Margaret River is one of the surfing capitals of the world, but having never surfed I didn’t fancy getting taken out by the humongous waves and feeling like I was tumbling around in a washing machine! It is however renowned for its wine production and and vineyards as well, so wine tours, dairy farms and breweries were at the top of our list.
When we landed in Perth what was the first thing we did? We went for a $12 pint. I could not believe my eyes, $12! People had told me Australia was expensive but apparently I wasn’t prepared. I pulled myself together, took into account the exchange rate, and realised that it was about £6.50. Don’t get me wrong that’s still a pricey pint, but I would pay that in some craft beer places back home so I didn’t cry about it. Our first drink in the land down under, life was good.
