Day 5 - In Perth

At around 1.30 pm, we arrived at Perth city. The weather for that day was burning hot, nearly 40C.

After resting for a while in the hotel room, we walked to the town center for lunch. Gosh, we all felt like melted. So, I couldn't say it was an enjoyable walk. 

After lunch, we wanted to stroll around the shopping area, but everyone didn't seem to have that mood...

Bumped into this shopping street that look so European style...

However, the things they sell are not so European style, but more "made in China" things. So, we were not so interested.

It was like 5-10 minutes, we left and walked back to the hotel to hide ourselves into the air-conditioning room. 

It was until 5 something that we dare to come out from the hotel room. The weather was much better by then. Husband drove us to a nearby Kings Park and Botanic Garden for a walk. 

The park is a good place to go at this time, especially for the family with old & young, like us.

Kings Park is located on the western edge of the central business district in Perth. The Park is a mixture of grassed parkland, botanical gardens and natural bushland. 

Kings Park is one of the largest inner city parks in the world and the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia. The park is larger than New York's Central Park.

The Eternal Frame and State Memorial

Standing up here, one can overlook the panoramic view of the Swan River and Darling Range.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery

Australian gum trees...

and their skin....

Actually we wanted to walk on that tree top bridge, but it was closed at 5pm, long before we arrived at the park. Wonder why they close it so early in the summer time?

The DNA tower that consists of 101 stairs...the kids ran up there very happily though. 

We left the park at around 7 pm, then went to a nearby harbor, called Hillarys Boat Harbour for dinner.

"what to eat??"
