Upon coming back into the Central Business District of Perth, we had a chance to walk around and to take in the downtown area of Perth, which had a really cool blend of modern and classic buildings, which is always fun to see the variation of time and style.
There was also a really neat depiction of the change in time with a set of statues which showed different men walking to work, with each dressed in a the style of different eras.
One of my favorite pieces of art in the CBD was a group of kangaroo statues, one of which had a joey inside of its pouch.
Another favorite part of this walk was in Elizabeth Quay. this area was named after Queen Elizabeth, and sits along the waters of the Swan River, and offers some excellent views of the Central Business District, and also features some neat statues. There is also a signature bridge that is part of a great walking path.
With that, our day exploring Perth came to an end. It was an excellent day and I really enjoyed having Mama Leonie and Christene as guides for the day, as it was great having the local insight into the area. The next day would be spent at Western Australia's theme park.
