|Swan Bell Tower|
Great views east to the Perth skyline, counterpointed by the waters of the Swan River. A fine spot, and one I’d return to later in the day for better light for photography.

No time to stop though, so a quick return to Perth on the overground Transperth train, in time to visit Kings Park more comprehensively. Starting at the Kokoda Memorial, just next to the First World War Memorial, with dominating views back over Perth in the low afternoon sunlight, then passing through the cleverly presented botanical gardens, I the walked the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, which takes you high above stands of eucalyptus trees, before taking the Kokoda trail, a steep path down to Mounts Bay Road, where a final short stroll took me to the Old Brewery Restaurant for a beer and excellent steak.

Back to the hotel, exhausted, but a very satisfying day. What a nice city!
