Family visit to the Casino

We've had family staying with us for the last 3 weeks, and I took time off from work and part-time leave from the blog to keep them company and to show them around our beautiful city, but I'm back with news of what I've been up to.

The day my brother in law and sister in law arrived from South Africa, I picked them up from the airport and drove them to my husband's work place so we could have lunch together.
After lunch, I took E and I to the Perth Crown Casino and the gardens around the Casino while my husband returned to his workplace nearby.
It had been quite a while since I had visited these gardens and I enjoyed revisiting the beautiful statues, the lake and we all loved the cheeky birds.

    Podia jurar que a avestruz ia levantar voo! (não me lembrava de avestruz em inglês, nem por nada ;-) )

  2. These photos are amazing, Sami. They give a real feel to the Casino and the surrounding grounds and statues. This is a beautiful area, and I'm sure your family enjoyed the outing. Very impressive.

  4. Wow, I never expected this! I thought it´s just the ugly building and that is it! I was wrong!
    Didn´t know you can simply walk in there either. Will give it a go next time! As in: Start Perth-list 2019 :-)

    1. Always something new for your future visits Iris. You can visit inside the Casino where the machines are just no photos. I can take you there next time, there's restaurants inside too and one with a buffet lunch.

    1. Quite right Gill, with my visitors I even discovered things I hadn't noticed before or recent additions to places I hadn't been to in a while. It's worth a visit Gill.
