Cafe cul­ture and beach for Kara

Ellenbrook Advocate - - #SNAPPERTH -

SWAN Dis­tricts and Fre­man­tle AFLW cap­tain Kara Don­nel­lan en­joys her cof­fee and beaches dur­ing her time off the footy field.

Don­nel­lan (25), also the Swan Dis­tricts’ V Swans high per­for­mance and jus­tice man­ager, said she loved the com­mu­nity as­pect of Bassendean over the five years she had been at the club.

“The footy club is very in­clu­sive, all about equal­ity and it is good to see them treat their women just like their men,” she said.

“There are a few lit­tle good cof­fee shops: Holly Rayes is a good one and Bamb bino’s, the drive through cof­fee, I usu­ally get that every morn­ing.

“I think Bassendean ticks all the boxes.”

When train­ing at Fre­man­tle Oval, Don­nel­lan likes go­ing to the Fre­man­tle Mar­kets and her favourite cof­fee shop in Fre­man­tle, Hush Cof­fee.

“I love the food, love the cul­ture and love ev­ery­thing about Fre­man­tle as well,” she said.

The Wil­let­ton res­i­dent said in her free time she ei­ther vis­ited beaches or watched Net­flix at home.

“If I am not coach­ing, play­ing or train­ing, I just try to re­lax down at the beach and soak up some sun,” she said.

“I like Leighton Beach, South Beach, even Coogee and Cottes­loe, but you can’t go past Scar­bor­ough.”
