Perth boasts many of Australia’s department stores around Hay Street and Murray Street in the CBD, so you don’t need to walk far if you need to hop from one to the next. MYER and David Jones have all you need for mid to high-range men’s and women’s clothes, accessories, beauty, homeware and electricals, while Target is more budget-friendly.
Nestled between the big department stores are boutiques selling all kinds of goods. From gentlemen’s dress shoes to vintage cameras and high-end pens, it’s astonishing what you can find. International brands like Mont Blanc reside beside local labels like Flower for one of the most diverse shopping experiences in the world.
A World of Cuisine
There are no restrictions on what you can cook in the kitchen thanks to the wide array of ingredients you can buy in Perth. Coles and Woolworths are the big supermarkets for everyday essentials, while Northbridge is the Asian cuisine capital of Perth, with an abundance of Asian grocery stores located along William Street. Don’t fancy leaving the house? There are also local specialty online grocery stores like The Lettuce Shop and Pantry Man.
From craft to farmers, you can find pretty much everything at Perth’s markets with an atmosphere to boot. Supporting local producers, craftspeople and even musicians, the city and surrounds are buzzing every weekend with markets in the CBD, along the beaches and in nearby towns. One of the most popular is Fremantle Markets for its notable heritage, coffee aromas and history for providing buskers with a stage to perform.
