Perth – Dec-Jan 2013

22nd Dec 2012 to the 5th January 2013

After much planning and spending of large sums of money, we all met up in Perth for a super family Xmas and to see the New Year in together. Oliver & Catherine traveled from Auckland and Peter, Debra, Kelsey & Ben from Wellington.

Photographers & Cameras: Peter with a Olympus C770 Ultra Zoom (38-380mm) & Ben with an Olympus E-P3 with double zoom kit (14-42mm & 40-150mm).

Everyone in the shot. (Front L – R) Thomas & Adele, Kelsey & Ben, Oliver & Catherine, Emma & Sam. (Back L – R) Peter & Debra. Photo taken at Rottnest Island on a wickedly hot day.

We arrived at the beginning of one of Perth’s heatwaves and for the the whole time we were in Perth the temperatures hit 40C pretty much every day with overnight temperatures around 30C.

Kelsey & Ben stayed with Thomas & Adele at their Perth city unit and Oliver & Catherine stayed at Samuel & Emma’s place.
Peter & Debra had a beach side cabin at the Coogee Beach Holiday Park (not air conditioned – gasp, gasp).

Our holiday ended with a couple of fun filled days at Surfers Paradise on the way back to New Zealand.

Ben & myself took loads of photos as we both love photography and Ben’s camera was a new one (until it cooked itself!). Thomas produced a neat video combining photos and video from throughout the holiday. I have selected our best shots and over the following pages, I have put them into into themes with groups of thumb-nailed photos. Enjoy!

A fabulous video produced by our video production expert, Thomas that merges photos and video from throughout our holiday in Perth.


Good Times

Here is a selection of photos that capture the mood and the good times we all had in Perth & Surfers Paradise. Lots of laughter. A holiday we will all remember for a long time to come.
