Living up to it's name, Good Things is a small yet undeniably delicious breakfast spot hidden in the suburbs of Mosman Park. The best thing on the menu? The Caramalised Banana-Nut Hot Cakes with honey, labneh and optional Maple Bacon. Widely considered on of the best breakkie spots in the city.

My finished mural for Kings Square - based on the old Entertainment Centre and the snake goddess - symbolic of the old wetlands that were part of the original landscape. @artsourcewa Thank you to everyone who came down to help paint it! #perth #melskiart #perthstreetart #streetartperth #snakegoddess #kingssquare
Head down to Elizabeth Quay, Perth's new social hub. Having only opened in January 2016, the area is still being developed, though there is still plenty to do and see here. There are incredible views of the Swan River, a playground for the kids and cool light shows once the sun goes down. For dinner? Eat in at The Revelery, combining a casual ground floor eatery, second floor restaurant and Henry's Rooftop, all serving great food with even better views.
After you've eaten, head into the city to find Bob's bar atop the old West Australian print factory. This is Perth history at it's best - named after former Prime Minister Bob Hawke, the bar even has his famous America's Cup quote as a neon sign on the wall.
