Perth City Guide

Perth is an awesome place to live and a stunning travel destination, but if you are looking for tourist icons, shopping malls and big crowds, then you are on the wrong side of the country. Blessed as the world’s most isolated capital city, we share our stunning beaches and national parks, King’s Park and Rottnest Island, small bars, fresh fish and locally grown food, awesome festivals and rocking live music scene with relatively few locals, let alone tourists. This is a place to chill, suck in the clean air and enjoy the serenity.


The Perth CBD / Northbridge precinct is renowned as a fun place to go.

Swan Valley

Think gourmet goods, local wine and unique regional art.


Markets, restaurants, breweries, bars, history – you’ll find it all in Fremantle.

Perth Hills

The Perth Hills provide everything you want from a country escape.


Everybody’s favourite place to escape, and home of the Quokka.


Just an hour’s drive south of Perth, the darling scarp melts into the ocean.

          Premium Floating golf balls. All range balls travel less far than a good quality ‘real ball’. We tested over 20 brands of floating golf ball from around the World until our Pro was satisfied we had the very best. He found our chosen ball was just on average 5% shorter than a ‘real ball’.

          Licensed Bar until closing time, our liquor license allows you to take purchased drinks out to the range, on the course or just enjoy around the clubhouse until closing time. Sorry, but BYO alcohol is prohibited.
