    Eagles Heritage Wildlife Centre

    It was great to see so many beautiful birds being looked after and properly cared for here. We took an hour long tour around the park, pausing for a bit for the show. My favourite part was getting to have an owl perch on my arm, and the raptors really put on a show for us.

    There are three popular caves to visit; Lake, Jewel and Mammoth. We did a tour of Lake Cave, the deepest of the three. Our guide was really knowledgeable about the formation, history and geology of the cave, and we were treated to a spectacular light show as well. While amazing, it was a bit daunting to see the "suspended table" weighing about 5 toes and defying gravity above the lake.

    We popped in for a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city, but ended up staying longer than intended. The Cathedral is beautiful, with newer renovations fitting in with the older parts of the building. We sat for a while and listened to the choir practicing and looked at all of the designs on the walls and ceilings.

    Running between the Hay Street Mall, and St Georges Terrace, London Court is a retail walkway and very narrow arcade, adorned with ornate window boxes, crests, gargoyles, and moulded ceilings. It was built in 1937 by Mr Claude de Bernales, a wealthy mining entrepreneur. The multi storied Tudor style facade, creates the impression you are in another era. The detail in the carved woodwork, and facades is quite extraordinary.

    This historic ring of bells was given to the people of Western Australia as part of the national Bicentennial celebrations in 1988. The 12 bells ring beautifully.

    The Larder Margaret River Restaurant

    This place caught our eye while walking - it was early evening and we weren't sure whether to eat out or make something for ourselves. Turns out the Larder is the best of both worlds! A number of take-away meals were available, in the end we chose pumpkin and almond ravioli and the Margaret River Venison shepherd’s pie. Both were delicious as we ate them back on the banks of the river.

    La Scarpetta Trattoria is a converted heritage house with a charming atmosphere and equally charming Italian staff. I had gnocci then tiramisu for dessert, matched with a beautiful local wine that I forget the name of. If you get a chance, have a chat to the part-owner Tom, he's Irish but speaks fluent Italian.

    We stopped in here for a few drinks and some tapas, drawn in by the lively atmosphere and cheerful banter going on around us. It's named "Morries Anytime" because it's the only all-day, any time eatery/restaurant/pub/cocktail bar in Margaret River.

    Out of all the eateries in Rockingham, this place was the best. Juices in jam jars? Interesting... but the peachy keen smoothie I had was to die for. We were lucky to have another sunny day so we made the most of it by sitting outside and enjoying the sun. Topped off with the pear and raspberry bread, it was a great mid-morning snack.

    What a unique menu.. it took a while to decide what I wanted because it all looked so good. Even if you don't eat there, the coffee is amazing. We sat outside and enjoyed thick pancakes for breakfast. It gets quite busy, but the food is worth the wait.

    Going swimming?

    Even though the ocean around here is lovely, it's pretty cold - even in summer! Bring a good, thick wetsuit if you're going to be spending a while in the water.

    National Park Passes

    We found out all National Parks in Western Australia require a pass to get in. You can get passes that last for a day, four weeks or a year. The day pass was only $10 a car, so we were happy to pay that a few times knowing it helps maintain all the parks and conserves the creatures that live there.

    Weather Fact

    Perth is not always hot which is often the belief by foreign visitors. During the winter months (June & July), it can get quite chilly. A light overcoat is highly recommended.

    Burning of the Vines

    Many wineries often host “burning of the vine cuttings” bonfires to celebrate a successful year of growing and production. This is a traditional way to celebrate the end of the wine growing season.
