Vibrant Victoria Park … Firstly, was very impressed with the night version of the Vic Park Café Strip. There was a definite hustle and bustle and lots of cafes and bars to choose from. Hence we were spoilt for choice on where to eat and drink.

A Grand Old Dame … Rushed up Old Perth Road to meet a friend for a drink at the Bassendean Hotel. But I had to pause and take a moment to appreciate the grandeur of this classic old hotel. Oh, and take a photo, of course.

Elephant and Wheelbarrow – English Pub


Elephant and Wheelbarrow, 53-55 Lake Street, Northbridge WA 6003, Phone 9228 4433.

This is a great building, right in the centre of Northbridge. Intentionally built to look exactly like a British Pub. The Hotel blends quite well with the Nightclubs and Restaurants surrounding it. There are quite a few Pubs in Northbridge but, for me, the Elephant and Wheelbarrow is the stand out, architecturally speaking.

Mundaring Weir Hotel – Pub Food – Wood Fired Pizza


Mundaring Weir Hotel, Corner of Weir Village and Hall Roads, Mundaring WA 6073, Phone 9295 1106.

Exploring Our History … Sundays are days where I like to take a drive. And end up somewhere like the Mundaring Weir Hotel. Not really for the food but to soak in the nostalgia of the area or the building we are visiting. Toodyay is a place that is ripe with old buildings and we visit often. They also have a nice café culture going on. York is another place steeped in history. But today it’s back to Mundaring. And, those wood fired pizzas.
