If we’re talking Australia Day, we’re talking pies. Filled-to-bursting, juicy, meaty, just-can’t-be-beat pies! And when it comes to pies in Perth, Jaylea’s is your ultimate source of pure pastry perfection. These handmade, gourmet delights come in every flavour (although we particularly love their Pepper Steak Pie), and you’ll want to try them all at least once. Probably twice. Maybe even thrice!

You might not think of a French bakery when trying to find places that do true blue Aussie treats. But when you do good pavlova and voted one of Australia’s best bakery, it doesn’t really matter where you’re from, honestly, and the illustrious Jean Pierre Sancho does it better than most. There are all sorts of other treats available too – from sangas to fine breads to a vibrant selection of macarons – not to mention they embrace the Australian theme with their cake decorations.

“Voted Australia’s best bakery (as I gathered from the writing on the napkin). Croissant, bread and macaroons are delicious!” – werxj
Fremantle’s ever-swanky Sail & Anchor is legendary for its enormous craft beer selection (40 cold taps, three hand pumps and four bars’ worth, to be exact), and it’s always a rollicking good pub to visit if you’re after one hell of a memorable Aus Day. Find out more
“For somewhere that could be potentially quite crowded this pub is relaxed, especially on a Sunday afternoon. They serve food all day so even at 3pm you can have a steak and chips! All tap beer is brewed by their own company but they you are welcome to try them to see what suits your taste buds. Definitely recommended above any other bar in Fremantle CBD.” – Prancer
Naturally, we’d be remiss not to include at least one of Perth’s many magnificent waterfront restaurants in this little endeavour. If you fancy a more low-key Australia Day this year, you can’t go past bringing a few mates along to the elegant Redmanna for some Mandurah sea mullet, veal medallions, or even medium-rare kangaroo! Y’know, if you’re feeling especially patriotic. Find out more
“My wife and I have been to Redmanna twice by ourselves and enjoyed it so much we booked our evening wedding reception there. All of our guests commented on how good the night was and how much they enjoyed themselves. Exquisite food, lovely location, our absolute favourite. I cannot recommend Redmanna highly enough.” – Damien Mer
