We’ve found many ways to combine the activities of cycling and coffee drinking in Perth, Western Australia. So, in this post I share one of our favourite city cycling routes. Beginning in Fremantle and tracing the coast, this cycle is suitable for all types of bicycles. Plus being accessible to public transport provides options to shorten …Read more »
Putting a gift voucher to good use, we spend our last morning of 2016 relaxing in the scenic surrounds of Rottnest Island.
Boarding the first ferry from B Shed in the Fremantle Port at 7.15 am, the journey is fairly uneventful as we travel the open seas and past some gigantic looking container ships. …Read more »

Located om Railway Street along the Fremantle train line and bicycle path, The Otherside Cafe is often a place we stop through on the morning cycle to Fremantle. More specifically it’s located on the other side of Swanbourne train station and accessible via the small Claremont Crescent bridge.

It’s a really peaceful part of the day and on our cycle around the Swan River today we detour for warm drinks and breakfast. Turns out this morning was the coldest one this year so far, and this …Read more »
Our plans to cycle along the river were halted not even half way when out of nowhere I experienced some fairly sharp piercing pains to the right side of one of my knees. Arghhh! When it became clear I couldn’t continue cycling we boarded the train for Perth at Canning Bridge, and all the while …Read more »
Setting out on a morning city cycle we were semi confident we would miss the storm predicted for later in the day, consequently the much loved Perth Christmas Pageant was cancelled. Ever since the great storm of 2010, storms are taken seriously, but only really occur 50% of the forecasted time. So the weather was pretty good …Read more »

We started our journey from Claremont train station and apart from a few disconnected sections at the beginning from Claremont, we …Read more »
