Perth 9 Days - Day 4 - Ocean Backpacker Hostel, Joe's Fish Shack

Day 4, we headed back to Perth city as we begin our road upwards.
We went back to Perth city in the morning and we dropped the couple at an outlet store near Adventure World, Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre.
We wanted to go Adventure World to try the rides and have some fun, cost about $57 per person.
Sad to say, there isn't much to play and the rides were not as exciting as USS/ Adventure Cove in Singapore though. Not worth the money, and we were out by 2pm. We went to find the couple for quick high tea and shopping before heading to our town area for our check-in.
This time, we decided to try Hostel! I have never stayed in a hostel before, hence I wanted to experience how a hostel looks like.
We booked  Ocean backpacker right next to Cottesloe for its nice location, and also better reviews.
 When we check in, the staff were really friendly and brought us to our rooms, and guided us where the common areas are.
It was quite happening like a university, with people playing by the open air and there's a library too.
When we went out for dinner, there were people cooking dinner at the huge kitchen, and some were playing guitar, singing songs. I think it would be very comfy if I were to stay long term here!
Of course, at a hostel, I didn't expect much, and I felt it was good enough for the price.
At least the bathroom was clean and there's strong stream of hot water!

We just cross the road from our hostel and was greeted with the beautiful Cottesloe Beach!
Very beautiful, and we managed to catch sun set again!
There are lots of bars around the vicinity
We drove down to Fremantle to try the popular Fish & Chip in town. There's so many Fish & Chip in Perth until I stopped eating that in Singapore. Too much!
Decided to try Joe's Fish Shack.

Seafood platter, Fish & Chips and Oysters! The oysters are really fresh in Australia and cheap!
So worth it. In general, I think eating seafood in Australia is much worth it comparing the freshness and the price. All the seafood we ate come up to about $86.
After eating, we walked down to Kailis Fish Market and ate Fish & Chips again! Just to eat which one is better. hahaha...
If you ask me, it taste the same to me... hahaha...

Slept early for the long journey tomorrow....
