MIA CUCINA Generous portions of delicious food. Intimate and relaxed, everything on the menu is cooked to perfection. miacucinawa.com.au

Way to spend an hour
COTTESLOE OR CITY BEACH Reading my book and eating an ice-cream in a shady spot on either of these beaches is bliss.
Place to see by night
ELIZABETH QUAY Night noodle markets, pop-up bars and mini golf are enhanced by the coloured fountains surrounding the Bell Tower.
WEMBLEY GOLF COURSE Mini golf and a great restaurant, plus the city views from the driving range is magic. wembleygolf.com.au
The one thing you must see
Perth as it just wakes up. It truly is a beautiful city.
