I took this photo (it’s actually a series of 6 photos stitched together) from the Lotterywest Federation Walkway in the tree tops of Kings Park last week when we were showing my Son’s girlfriend around. As it was her first trip to Kings Park I have named this image “Hannah’s View” after her 🙂
What really grabbed me about this image is just how well it sums up life in Perth. Starting with the iconic Eucalyptus (or Gum) trees on the slopes of Mount Eliza showing the natural beauty that is all around Perth and the stunning blue skies with puffy white clouds that we can get all year round (this was taken in the middle of winter).
Down below you can see the historic Old Swan Brewery, fully restored and containing some of Perth’s best restaurants such as Zafferano with its unrivaled views over the Swan River.
Then there’s the Swan River majestically flowing around the South Perth Peninsula and the Narrows Bridge spanning the river to providing one the few routes between the warring factions (in a friendly way, naturally 🙂 ) of Perth’s Northern & Southern suburbs.
Of course there’s the unique skyline of Perth City representing our busy but laid back life style here in Western Australia and finally in the far distance you can see the Perth Hills that represent the country lifestyle that we have available to us within an hours drive from the city.
This image tells a wonderful story about Perth and I’ll never forget that I took it while watching my son and his girlfriend, who was visiting from Queensland for the first time, getting to know each other better 🙂
