An easy 30 minutes from the city centre, Fremantle is the perfect city for coast side living amongst an eclectic mix of creative people that populate the bohemian town. Around Fremantle, you can take a sip of coffee along the famous ‘Cappuccino Strip’ and mix and mingle with friends and friendly strangers alike. Prices start from $400 AUD per week for pretty townhouses and sophisticated apartments. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, house and flat shares can be found for around $150-$200 per week, which really keeps the cost down whilst you’re on a working holiday visit.

This suburb is perfect for young professionals who love vibrant inner city social scenes with contagious positive energy. The suburb’s famous Oxford Street has an array of places to eat and shop to your heart’s content. Working in the city means you’re in the social centre with the best transport links to nearby suburbs.

The district of Northbridge boasts plenty of reliable watering holes. The entertainment goes on ‘til early hours and provides the perfect social scene for you to let off steam. Try William Street, which hosts a number of great bars like Bivouac Canteen and Bar, 339 Bar and The Brass Monkey.

Eating in Cottesloe

This is the best place to look over the Indian Ocean and feel the gentle sea breeze while dining on your favourite cuisine. The village atmosphere in this town will lure you into a harnessing cocoon while you feast on seafood as darkness falls over the orange and pink hues of sunset. Taste Italian dishes at Il Lido or gorge on lamb-rack at The Blue Duck.

Immerse yourself in Kings Park and the Botanic Garden. You can go on bushland nature trails where the sighting of Western Australia’s wildflowers and wildlife will set your mind at ease. Go over to the Saw Avenue Amphitheatre on the western side of the park for a dose of escapism and the huge fountain, that, when the wind blows in the right direction, will cool you down on a hot day.

In Perth’s nearest water sport haven, you can experience scuba diving at the West Coast Dive Park, as well as go snorkelling, windsurfing and kite surfing along some of the best spots on the west coast of Australia.
