Perth Revisited – Shire of York


Date: 31th August 2012


After a 2 month break from travelling (due to the fasting month of Ramadhan and the Eid Month of Shawal), we were finally going out again.

Our previous outing was to Manila. See here for the last blog post of that outing.


This time we had another couple as our companions 🙂 . Pak Aron is an old friend of mine, whom I had lost touch with, until recently.

We left LCCT late on the night of 30th August, arriving in Perth the following morning. Pak Aron at the Perth International Airport arrival hall, while DH went to the car rental counter:


We were going to drive around for the next 3 days in this car:


Breakfast stop just outside Perth,in Mundaring



Our first destination was an old township. Along the way we stopped to admire the canola field:


It was nice to be greeted by the bright wattle flowers (one of Australian native flowers):


We finally arrived at the junction that leads to the Historic York town


(I did my MSc in York University, Yorkshire, UK. And here I was in the Shire of York, almost 2 decades later, thousands of miles and oceans apart from the original York!


The Post office would be one of the first prominent buildings in any town 🙂


And the town Hall too 🙂


Quite Friday morning:

Another look before we decided it was time to leave:


It was a nice day but we had to head back to Perth, to check into our hotel.
