Elizabeth Quay Hidden by a row of skyscrapers and edging the Swan River, Perth’s one-year-old waterfront precinct combines bars and restaurants with a curving bridge, walkways and a playground. The Reveley, a tri-level café, restaurant and bar, grants fantastic views, particularly at sunset. You can also take the commuter ferry across the water to South Perth, an enjoyable return journey on its own. The Esplanade; mra.wa.gov.au/ projects-and-places/elizabeth-quay

Perth Cultural Centre Get your culture fix at this wide pedestrian hub next to Perth railway station. The Art Gallery of Western Australia, which has an excellent and mostly free exhibition line-up in 2017, faces the herb and vegetable-filled Urban Orchard (pick at will, it’s also gratis). Past a couple of pod cafés is the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA), found just beyond PICA bar, a busy coffee, beer and eats joint. Bordered by Roe St, Beaufort St, Francis St and William St; perthculturalcentre.com.au

Pigeonhole For a cute and quirky overload, skip in to Pigeonhole’s flagship store, filled with eclectic finds such as inflatable flamingos, neon light rainbows and plastic pineapple cocktail tumblers. The Perth-born, nationwide chain also does a brilliant edit of novel stationery, vintage-look toys, chunky jewellery, fashion ranging from Lacoste to Finders Keepers and One Teaspoon, and oddities such as gin-making kits. 330 Murray St; pigeonhole.com

Brookfield Place Don’t miss the drink of summer 2017, the frosé. Renditions of the frozen rosé wine cocktail are all over the city, but we’d tip the version that The Trustee Bar & Bistro – one of the hangouts at the Brookfield Place precinct – is doing with Aperol, vermouth and blood orange puree. Move on to Bar Lafayette for more of the city’s best cocktails and mocktails, before heading down the open-air steps to the hidden-away Choo Choo’s bar. 125 St Georges Tce; brookfieldplaceperth.com

State Buildings Spend the day in this award-winning precinct of reimagined heritage buildings. Have coffee at Telegram Coffee and admire the florist, then the designer garments at the Aurelio Costarella boutique. Lunch at the Petition Kitchen then grab a craft beer at Petition Beer Corner – or handmade chocolates from Sue Lewis Chocolatier. Go below ground to Long Chim for sassy cocktails and Thai street food, finishing up at Halford Bar. Cnr Barrack St and St Georges Tce; statebuildings.com
