When you’re out walking the streets of Perth looking for a place to go, the last thing you want is a cumbersome book or magazine weighing you down, that’s why we’ve created the X-Press Pocketbook, your one-stop guide to all that is great in WA. And it’ll fit in your pocket too. We’re not just focussing on the city centre of Perth, where business meets pleasure on a daily basis, but we head all over this great city of ours. If you want to get in with the hip kids, them maybe you ought to think about spending some time in Leederville or Mount Lawley where there’s plenty of bars, heaps of great food and some fashions you can set your wood-plated watch to. A more cosmopolitan experience can be had in the the heart of the golden triangle. Places like Subiaco, Claremont and Cottesloe are all about the swank. Top-tiered boutiques line the streets every which way. Several highways in Perth lead to Fremantle, and countless tourists think Fremantle is a different city altogether. Well they’re kind of right. Off come the shoes and comes the hair when you’re in out port city. We even cast our eyes to the splendid South West, which is well worth a gander or three even if you’re only in the west for a couple of days. Heck, when you’ve got as much to do as those who live in Perth, it’s worth bragging about. Sun, surf, shopping, dining, clubbing, live bands and more, you must be pretty dull if you can’t embark on your own adventure in this state! X-Press Pocketbook - we’ll show you around!

How often do you hear so-and-so has “the best beaches in the world”? Too many, we know! Well, with Perth you’d better believe it. So good are Perth’s legendary beaches that Spain was recently sprung using them in tourism advertisements, passing them off as their own. But you can’t blame them – our beaches are literally second to none. From Mullaloo in the north right down to Fremantle in the south, Perth’s beaches are defined by their crystal aqua blue waters, the endless horizons, fine white sand and legendary sunsets. Nothing – absolutely nothing – beats a pint at the Ocean Beach Hotel in Cottesloe as the sun plunges into the magnificent Indian Ocean. Pack your suncream and get ready for paradise.
