The only way you could get clothes on her is via a boat – and where do you buy clothes for a 2-metre high woman? \n\nSuddenly, ‘go and see what Eliza is wearing’ got added to my list of fun things – it’s definitely one of the most unique things to do in Perth.","type":"text"},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FCBq5GrKhotJfrY22bTle%2F4.jpg?alt=media&token=8fafc16e-3ed3-4f8f-97e7-3f138ed5f804","type":"img"},{"content":"https://goo.gl/maps/Rbrc28Do2cwCCCBz8","type":"link"}],"address":"Eliza Sculpture"},{"media":[{"type":"text","content":"# Check Out Kings Park\nEvery guide to Perth includes this and I admit, I couldn’t really see the appeal myself – but one the main reasons for my last trip to Perth was to see my friend’s dog, Muttley, and Kings Park is his favourite walking spot and so I got a dog’s eye view of it – and there are a few unusual things to do in the park itself.\n\nThe area around the DNA Tower – so named as it’s shaped like the double helix of DNA – is particularly good sniffing spot, sorry sightseeing spot.\n\nAlso, take a wander over the Lottery West Federation Walkway – a treetop-height walkway which gives you a nice close-up view of leaves on one side and out over the Swan River in the distance."},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FCBq5GrKhotJfrY22bTle%2F9.jpg?alt=media&token=b2d3d25c-8573-46ae-89fd-7b7325007ba5","type":"img"},{"type":"link","content":"https://www.bgpa.wa.gov.au/kings-park"}],"address":"Kings Park and Botanic Garden","location":{"longitude":115.83127465000001,"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834,"latitude":-31.962593175741414,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421}},{"address":"Gondolas on the Swan","media":[{"content":"# Go on a Gondola\nThere are lots of boats floating around Elizabeth Quay, private ones, ferries, little cute boats doing sightseeing tours, but keep your eyes peeled for a gondola!\n\nThis is Gondolas on the Swan and, despite it's Italian look, it's run by an English guy and the boat was made in Australia from Western Red Cedar. \n\nIf you get the urge to pretend you're in Venice and go for a sail yourself, you'll need to book in advance via their website - but, they make a cute photo.\n\n","type":"text"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FCBq5GrKhotJfrY22bTle%2F13.jpg?alt=media&token=8fac3e77-210a-4c3b-9d5a-aaf0b1388568"},{"type":"link","content":"https://www.gondolasontheswan.com.au"}],"location":{"longitude":115.85633465,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-31.957466859906713,"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834}},{"media":[{"type":"text","content":"# Spanda\n\nChances are you've already seen a few sculptures on your walk around this area, but this white curved number, that looks a bit like an avocado slicer is Spanda - Perth's most expensive sculpture\n\nCreated by Western Australian artist Christian de Vietri, the 29 metre tall sculpture cost $1.3 million dollars.\n\nIt's inspiration is water ripples and it aims to link the Swan River and quayside to the sky.
