Why Perth Needs To Be Added To Your Australia List

Gnomesville: The Little Gnome Town in the West Australian Bush

Did you know there is a gnome town prospering in the West Australian bush, just 2 hours south of Perth? Gnomesville has their own little gnome schools, gnome buses, gnome community groups and tiny little gnome houses. You can even bring new citizens to this gnome town.

Upon first entering Gnomesville you may feel your inner child squeal with glee. You might come across an Elvis gnome, Gnomi Campbell, a bikini-clad gnome sunbathing or a downright rude gnome bending over with his pants down showing his freckle! But the further you walk into Gnomesville, the more gnomes you see, or rather the more eyes you feel staring back at you. I just couldn’t ignore the slightly creepy feeling the more I explored.

Give Me All the Meat Fruit – Dinner and Theatre with Heston

“Hi, do you know where we can find Dinner?”

“You might have to be more specific, what kind of meal were you after?”

“No, it’s called Dinner. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, that’s the name of the restaurant.”

It’s an awkward but simplistically accurate name, although being a Heston restaurant you would assume a name like ‘The Curious & Bewildering Dinner Experience’, would be more apt.

Its dimly lit interior, hidden away in the echelons of Melbourne’s Crown Casino, deceives the eyes but the space has been well designed to ensure the tables themselves are well lit. It’s dark but warm, minimalist yet sleek and stylish. Continue reading “Give Me All the Meat Fruit – Dinner and Theatre with Heston”
