First it was Chinese gardeners growing gooseberries, then came weekenders hauled up on a zig-zag railway, which brought prized jarrah wood back down the hill. Now the wild bush and cultivated vineyards of Perth Hills are at your disposal too.....

.... Possum Creek has a trio of homestead suites, one of which has a distinctly Italian feel with Medici artwork and a Tuscan courtyard. I was in the bright, summery cottage opposite and felt immediately at home. What a relaxant, after a long flight, to be able to privately potter, make a cup of tea, settle on the sofa and flick through magazines and TV channels. It helped that I’d arrived to such a warm welcome from Helen. She was busy organising the local Spring Garden Festival and her garden’s lush and colourful plants were helpfully name-tagged with trademark attention to detail. Leon popped by and we strolled amongst the interconnected patios, ponds and footbridges. I returned to contemplate dinner. On my doorstep was all I needed: doctor, deli, butcher, restaurant and bottle-shop, as well as a patisserie whose reputation stretches across Perth. On Sundays, the place is abuzz with cyclists from Fremantle. I sat down to a wood-fired pizza on my north-facing balcony and watched the setting sun paint Perth pink.
