Perth's fabulous shopping experience will be enhanced this Christmas thanks to these wonderful Christmas Markets.

I do love a traditional Christmas Market; wrapped up warm, browsing through the stalls and finding that perfect Christmas gift for your family and friends is the ideal way to step into the festive season.  For me, meeting the artisan makers is all part of the thrill and you are sure to find me chattering happily about the beautiful - and often tasty! - goods  at some point over the festive period!
