5 Off the Beaten Track Places You Have to Visit in Western Australia

Despite it being a fair few weeks since we've come home from Western Australia, not a day goes by that I do not think of all the amazing foods we had there. But consumables aside, WA has more to offer than just great eating experiences. 1) Yeagurup Dunes The Yeagurup Dunes was my absolute favourite location.

Nasi Lemak Korner, Mosman Park Perth

"Good food brings back great memories" was what came to mind throughout my visit at the authentic Malaysian-inspired outlet in Mosman Park.

The Eate On The Spit & Off The Grill, Sydney

For those of you planning your next trip to Sydney, be sure to check out this Mediterranean restaurant right off Dulwich Hill. For our Muslim friends out there, you'd be glad to know that this family-friendly diner serves halal food! This was one restaurant in Sydney that I was really glad I had a chance to eat at.
