Places in Perth
Creative, relaxed, open-minded: Fremantle's spirit is entirely distinct from Perth's. Perhaps it has something to do with the port and the city's working-class roots.

Kalamunda is a well-heeled township on the crest of the Darling Range. The area began as a timber settlement, but it's since become a quieter residential haven close to the city (it's a 30-minute drive from Perth). The main shopping area on Haynes St has good pubs and cafes. Nearby is Stirk Cottage, built of mud, saplings and shingle in 1881.
