Perth
The thrill of the journey, the anticipation of the destination, the people you see, the conversations you hear, the worlds you become part of, even if only for a few hours.. Aren't airports just so lovely? When I landed in Perth Airport it was 0730 in the morning. Its a quite place, clear sky, blue water and not many people around. I stayed in Hyatt Regency Perth which is just 20 min drive from the airport. Took a power nap of 2 hours and decided to go out to see the beautiful city. I enjoyed the Swan river scenic cruise which starts in the afternoon at 1415 hours for about 3 hours. That cost me $ 40. The last spot to get down from the cruise is Fremantle which has many attractions like Fremantle prison, rail station, maritime museum, market, Army museum, monument hill. The temperature was 40 degrees outside but the breeze was cool. Returned back to the hotel and relaxed by the poolside.    On day - II I went for Pinnacles day tour. The temperature was 33 degrees (better than the previous day). It cost me $ 165. I was impressed with Luke (the bus driver cum guide cum adventurer). He took us around the national park which has Koalas, Kangroos and many other animals. It was a long drive from the national park to the pinnacles & lobster shack. Pinnacles are limestone formations within Nambung national park, near the town of Cervantes. Followed by some jaw dropping moments in Indian ocean. Luke managed to get me vegetarian lunch in Lobster shack which was healthy and stomach filling. Had again a power nap of 30 min in bus & Luke drove the bus on Lancelin sand dunes. Mostly the bus passengers were old couples except few. We all had fun on sand. There were small kids and these smallies made me feel ashamed as they can get sand boarding right in their first attempt while I took 3 attempts and still was not confident. 
Brisbane
Great nights out in Fortitude Valley, and enjoy a ride up the river. Culture abounds in Brisbane, too, making it a must-see destination in Australia.
