Spotlight on: Mundaring

Situated just a 45-minute drive from Perth city centre, Mundaring is a picturesque place for a full or half day trip. One-third of the shire is state forest, making the drive as well as the visit itself a pleasant one to say the least. Start the day by popping into an art gallery, then stock up your pantry, stop for a tranquil lunch under the trees, swim in a lake, head out for a hike, and reward yourself with pizza before catching a flick outdoors. Here are our tried and tested faves from the area.

Yoke takes pride of place on the corner of Dundas Road and Beaufort Street in Inglewood. When driving past, you’ve probably spotted their super cool deckchairs stretched out on the pavement, or perhaps you’ve keenly window-shopped while waiting for a takeaway coffee at Finlay & Sons across the road. If you haven’t stepped foot inside yet, we’d like to introduce to you your new favourite gift shop.

When you’re looking at the location of Perth on a map, or when a GPS reveals how far away you are from Perth, the location they are referring to is in fact in Cathedral Square. The location of the original post office was in the precinct, and while the PO has long gone, you can still stand at Point Zero, marked on the pavement.
