Kings Park
Day 2 started off with a hangover. It hung over for the rest of the day which slowed my touristy ventures. We eventually dragged ourselves to Kings Park, the largest botanical gardens located in the city on the southern hemisphere (apparently). The grass was amazing, I nearly fell asleep on their soft green grass where ants were absent. My favourite from the garden wasn’t even the gorgeous riverside view, but their native Boab trees which are plump and stumpy. I realised I have one around the corner from my house in Brisbane.

Fremantle
We then swung by the area of Fremantle. It almost seems like another city as it is a hub on its own. We popped into Fremantle Markets where I enjoyed the best cold-pressed orange juice I’ve ever had then snapped up some real bargain grocer deals. I bought some gypsy Honey Cake from a European damsel which was delicious. My favourite part of Fremantle was the preservation of all the heritage buildings with not one modern building in sight. It almost felt like I was strolling through a movie set at Universal Studios. The port is quite beautiful which is bewildering as you’d think those massive tanks, containers and pollution would destroy the serenity of the place (okay I admit there’s some spots where it’s pure chaos but the water is still a beautiful azure blue).
