Located on Beaufort Street, Must is primarily a wine bar, offering a solid selection of wines and cocktails. Tantalizing delicacies such as polenta bites or scallop croquettes can be chosen from the bar menu to accompany the expertly prepared drinks. But Must also is a bistro, a self-confessed ‘little slice of Paris’, serving dishes with a French flair.

Red Cabbage is undoubtedly one of Perth’s finest restaurants. Featuring a menu of roasted quail, ricotta gnocchi, ocean trout with asparagus and almonds, it is difficult to pick out a single best dish from the array of tantalizing options on offer. The desserts are particularly playful and creative, while the list of continental wines is yet another thumbs-up for the restaurant.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
