Just 30 minutes from Perth, the bustling, dynamic port city of Fremantle has long been renowned for its mix of arty and alternative types. For people who have been to Melbourne, this city is a bit like Fitzroy. It’s arty, cool and has a lot of funky bars.
Swan Valley located to the north east of Perth is perfect if you fancy a naughty half day outside the city chocolate and wine tasting. I was more interested in the wine and the chocolate liqueurs, naturally.
