Following my previous post about Healthy Eating options in Perth, here is now a selection of the things I enjoyed doing as a full-time nutrition student in Western Australia (WA).
WA has way more to offer. This post contains a few memories only of our time over there. Simple pleasures in life include…
Going for a swim
Running next to the water
There is something about the ocean/river/water that makes it really relaxing. And if possible enjoying a beautiful view while training makes the workout a little easier.
Stretching while watching the sunset was a nice bonus. The weather is fantastic in Perth. You can spend plenty of time outdoors and get all the vitamin D you need from the sun. But careful it gets very hot in summer!
City to Surf
A nice and healthy way to discover the area while running from the city to the beach. More information about the run in August here: City to Surf Perth
These pictures were taken during Australia Day (26 January 2014).
Heirisson Island with kangourous living 15 minutes away from our place…
Kings Park and Botanic Garden
For pictures see one of my previous post Moving to Perth Western Australia
I never get tired of it as it is so relaxing at the end of the day… A lovely moment to reflect and meditate.
AFL is big in WA. It was really cool to watch a game at the Subiaco Oval
Rottnest Island was a great place. More pictures from a previous trip here Rottnest Island Perth
Furthermore there is so much to explore in Western Australia. Travelling and changing day to day routine is really good to put things into perspective.
Few suggestions of road trips
it is important to enjoy driving and spending time in the car as the distances are usually important…
But with a nice and healthy homemade picnic made by the nutrition student in charge we only had to enjoy the view 🙂
The Pinnacles (200kms North of Perth)
Lake Thetis, Cervantes, WA (200 ams North of Perth)
Want to look at some living fossils? A rare place in the world to see living marine stromatolites.
Jurien Bay (220kms North of Perth)
Margaret River (270kms South)
There were also some pictures in the previous post I mentioned above. Here it is again if you prefer to have a look now Road trip Margaret River
Denmark (420 kms South East)
Valley of Giants Tree Top Walk (430kms South East)
Nice walk. I believe kids would love it.
Ningaloo Reef Marine Park (1140kms North)
Snorkelling is a must.
I found Perth to be a really good place to focus on your health, career and personal life as the lifestyle is pretty laid-back.
And you can also find many lovely other options to celebrate with friends.
Thank you for everything Perth and Western Australia! You’ve been very good to us xx
