Five Perth presents to pick up for your London mates
Packed full of things to do and see, it’s no wonder Perth is moving its way up the list of cities to visit. Staying at Fraser Suites Perth, with its prime position, provides the perfect starting point to explore the city. With the inaugural Qantas Dreamliner flight from Perth to London taking off over the weekend, Fraser Suites Perth have put together a list of the five quintessential Perth tokens to pick up before heading to the UK.
Quokka from Rottnest Island
Though a Quokka selfie is a popular thing to do, we want to make sure our furry, camera friendly mates are protected on Rottnest Island. Instead, pick up a travel-friendly toy version from the Rottnest Island Visitor Centre gift shop before hopping on the ferry back. When you arrive in London, set up your own Quokka selfie and share it with your friends.
Swan Valley Wine from a Swan Valley Tour
After taking a tour down to the picturesque Swan Valley – just an hour’s drive from Fraser Suites Perth – pick up a bottle of your favourite wine and make the most of those alcohol allowances!
Chocolate from the Margaret River Chocolate Company
You can’t go past stopping into one of the Margaret River Chocolate Company’s three Perth locations- the original Margaret River factory, the Swan Valley location or just down the road from Fraser Suites in Perth’s CBD. With free entry and a free tasting, you’ll have to pick some up for the road- inflight snack anyone?
Gold from the Perth Mint
Whether it be a true investment with a kilo bullion or perhaps a slightly more affordable gram, a piece of gold from the famed Perth Mint is a shiny souvenir sure to impress! Take a trip to discover all the attractions the Mint has to offer, including the Guinness World Record holding Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin!
Ashes Memorabilia from the WACA
For something your English mates will love, wander across the road from Fraser Suites Perth and pick up some Ashes memorabilia from the WACA museum. If you’ve missed out on a game day at the legendary ground, take a guided tour of the ground before wandering around the museum.
