  • In awe of this library. So much variety and knowledge to share. The top level has genealogical research tools. I found notable that there is a kids section, a mapping/ surveying section and music score section among many others. Such awesome views of the city from the upper levels too and incredible staff.
  • Could not use Google Drive due to their internet policy (backup sites are blocked). Also I could not reach websites that are less popular, because these less popular websites are (yet) uncategorised, and all uncategorised websites are blocked as well. Time waster.
  • Always a treat to visit. Aside from the vast range of books, the organised kids activities are the main reason why I love this place. They also have art exhibitions on occasion. Very knowledgeable staff.
  • I have good experience with GESHA coffee shop It's located 1 floor I am not sure staff name I think she is from Asia of course all staff is friendly but especially got more pretty service from this staff.I sat outside today Outside has a lot of pigeons.I was eating chicken sushi. but I didn't enough soy sauce. I heard beside table customer that pigeon pick one sushi while I brought more soy sauce. I was little bit scared that's why I moved inside table. By the way Asia staff asked me what's happened? why did you move table inside? so I explained my situation. but I am still eating my sushi because I was still hungry. but staff said..please do not eat sushi anymore if you keep going you will get stomach problem. and then staff said can you wait a moment? i am ganna ask my manager and then I will bring some food so she brought some bread with explaining regarding food. I was so happy and I definitely will come back again. thank you:)

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.
