Perth winter streets


As summer draws to a close, and the winter months roll in, we start to look forward to nights by a fire, rugged up under blankets, or crisp morning walks in binis and scarves.

Where can we go to hibernate - where is Perth's best winter break?

The little seaside places north of Perth like Guilderton, Lancelin, Cervantes and Dongara are really pretty and not nearly as crowded during the winter months. Rottnest Island is also a good choice, and the Rottnest Island Authority often has some good specials during the cooler months.

I also love heading inland to the Wheatbelt during the cooler months as the summer is SO hot there. Some nice places to stay that I strongly recommend are Watson's Rest farmstay near Mukinbudin (close to a magnificent nature reserve with good bushwalking tracks) and McCorry's Old Hotel near Nungarin, which offers great, old-fashioned hospitality. Visiting the Wheatbelt at the end of winter is also a good time to see some of the lovely wildflowers that are native to the region.

Other great weekend escapes for the winter include the northern goldfields, the Perth Hills, and the beautiful Blackwood Valley (Nannup, Ballingup, Bridgetown, etc).
I would have to say that a little trip down south to Busselton is a great place to go.
For a family winter break, or perhaps a solitary few days of absolute peace and quiet, a trip to Karri Valley just outside of Pemberton is just the place. Each cabin has a log fire. There's also a hotel right over the water of the dam, and a restaurant with delicious winter food. I've stayed there many times and it never looses its appeal. As Dale Kerrigan from The Castle says, "how's the serenity?"...

Even though its cooler a trip down south is always a nice break and it appears more lush due to the rain. Anywhere from Bussleton to Denmark gets my vote. A long weekend in York is also a nice treat.
