"We endeavour to help
you make the most of
the season by bringing
you the best of Perth"
Danielle Benda, editor
Autumn is probably the best
season of all. (although just wait until
June, when I tell you how much I love winter... and
spring is always gorgeous and then, of course, I have
enjoyed this summer too...) But back to autumn;
it is still warm but the searing heat has (generally)
passed, the wind has dropped, the ocean is balmy
and my garden responds to the cool by unfurling its
leaves and sending out a flower or two. Once again
we at Scoop have endeavoured to help you make
the most of this time of year by bringing you the
best of Perth's events, fashion, food and wine for you
Ever mindful of our obligation to you, we even
set out to sample -- and recommend -- the best of
Perth's new small bars (page 54). And although we
found a few beauties to tell you about, there are still
plenty of people wondering why it seems to take
so much time and expense to get a liquor licence.

A drive around Perth or up the main street of
almost any town in the Goldfields and Wheatbelt
vividly illustrates the wealth that gold brought to our
state at the turn of the last century. All those quaintly
elaborate town halls and pubs are testament to the
part this mineral played in our development. And
while our current mineral boom is largely fuelled
by iron ore, gold is still one of our biggest money-
makers. With the Boddington mine opening and
the gold price soaring, gold really is giving us a
glittering future. Read all about it on page 64.
