Kings Park, Perth WA

First blog post from Perth! Safe to say I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE. Where else can you get 35-degree heat in December?! At the end of my visit to this incredible country, I will type up a general round up of Perth, however, I will write individual posts about particular places/activities that I think you guys will like! :D

To start off, Kings Park, the most popular tourist destination in the city of Perth, was one of the big ones on my list of things to do while here. And it didn't disappoint.

My Ultimate Camping Bucket List

I have always loved having a Bucket List to track and plan my adventures in life. Since I was young, I've always had it posted above my bed. It's been printed and re-printed countless times, through moving house to falling off the wall. I currently have it written out on coloured paper, stuck on the inside of my wardrobe door, so I see it every day. No doubt it'll get all crumpled, ripped or lost again next time I move. But I love re-writing it. It's amazing to see what I've accomplished and I always add more.

That's why I decided to share my Camping Bucket List with you all. I was going to share the whole bucket list I have, but a) Some items are off-topic for this blog, and b) it's a very personal account of what I want out of my life, and many will not relate. I don't want to bore you all!

So this bucket list is something I hope everyone can relate to. Maybe you've done all of these, maybe you've done none. Hopefully it will give you some ideas of different types of camping, and different adventures you can have while camping! If you've done any of these, I would love to hear all about it. Some I have accomplished but have not written about as it was many years ago. However, any I do accomplish in the future, there will be a blog post about it - so please follow by email to keep up to date!

Reader Advice Needed!

So, as of tomorrow, it is ONE WEEK until I head to Australia for a whole 3 and a half week holiday! I am MEGA excited, both to see Australia, as I have never been before, and to see my godfather and his family over Christmas and New Year - it's been a long time :)

Since this is my first trip down-under, I need some reader advice! We are heading to Perth, WA, and have three and a half weeks to explore. I will have access to a car too. Obviously the family we are staying with have lots of recommendations themselves, but I'd love to hear from you guys too!

I want to see as much as possible and do as much as possible!

What sights/attractions/places would you recommend in or around Perth?

Christmas and New Year - anything exciting happening around the festive period?

Any recommended restaurants, bars, clubs?

Any local inside knowledge?

I am interested in possibly camping, though I'm not sure if this will happen, as I cannot take my own camping equipment over and haven't found very much information about camping over there as of yet.

Has anyone been camping in Oz? Any tips?

Can I take part in an organised camping trip for a night? Or hire camping gear from somewhere?

Obviously, I will be looking up safety, animals, laws etc before embarking on a camp in a new country. But any advice re. camping in Australia that anyone has is much appreciated!

Any recommendations of beaches and lessons for surfing? I have only been surfing once before and it was in the cold waters of Tiree, not Oz! But I am very much looking forward to doing it again.

We also may head over to the East for a few days.

Any recommendations for visiting the East?

As we wouldn't have much time on the East, which city/area is best to head for?

The actual trip aside: the travelling.

Any packing tips?

Long-haul flight tips?

Thank you in advance for all your help! Leave me a comment below with any advice. Or, you can always head to the Contact page and drop me a note via social media :)
