The same singularly proud and reserved nature which turned away with disdain from popular notoriety was capable of being moved to its depths by spontaneous wonder and praise from a friend.
–Watson’s narrative, in Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Return of Sherlock Holmes

Did the Easy Breezy Freo walk today, great day out, our granddaughters had an absolute ball. Loved that it was all pram/wheelchair friendly, so we could take and involve all. You have young minds working overtime and a weekend away from iPads and TV is great!


Hubby and I managed to do the Northbridge walk last weekend and our adult children did it this weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would all like to thank you for the effort you have put into researching these trails. It was a pleasure finding out things about Perth we never knew and getting us out and about and communicating with each other.


I just wanted to let you know that we completed your Fremantle Detective Trail last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great day out and we all learnt a bit more about Fremantle. The kids were so excited when they worked out the answer to a clue before I did. I will definitely be recommending this to others. We intend to have another go at one of the other trails in the next school holidays.


As a group of 65+ aged ladies we had so much fun, many laughs, learnt heaps and thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles. It required all our brains combined and still we had to resort to the cheat sheet on a couple but managed to find the thief in the end! I’ve had three emails from the girls, thanking me for doing the puzzle as it was so much fun!! Really made our stay on Rottnest special.


We had a great time this afternoon walking the Central Perth trail! It was a great way to see parts of the city we hadn’t been to in years. My kids (12 & 9) kept saying how clever the clues were. We are looking forward to doing the next one!


We had a great time completing the Fremantle walk. We had a wonderful day out and saw more of Fremantle than we usually do. We are planning to do the Kings Park one next week after all the fun we had!


I just wanted to say thank you for your fantastic Fremantle walk. Today myself and my 3 children, 12, 10 and 7 spent 4 hours wandering Freo completing the puzzle. We all loved it, such a fun day and even my 12 yr old son commented on how much he learned. We  are off to Rottnest at the end of Jan and will definitely be doing your walk there.


We did the trail through Northbridge yesterday. It was fantastic! We will definitely be doing another one these holidays. My daughter in the wheelchair is very limited on school holiday activities but this was just perfect.


We enjoyed the Perth Sweet and Savoury walk – especially the Percy Button stop as Percy used to stop in at my family’s plumbing shop, which was where IGA now is in Leederville. I’m very proud of my State and thanks for bringing its history to life.


Did you know the Australian raven (commonly mistaken for the crow) has a southwest subspecies known as Corvus coronoides perplexus? I hope you’ll be perplexed on one of the WA Detective Trails puzzle walks.
