WA city named as must-visit destination

One Australian tourist destination was named in Lonely Planet’s annual top 10 cities list for 2016, but it wasn’t Melbourne or Sydney.

I love Fremantle but I think someone @ the lonely planet either found true love or some pretty good dope on his visit to Freo. Great it is ,but in the worlds top 10... Unbelievable!!

I think you missed the point of the Lonely Planet listing Peter. Its a list of great places to visit in 2016, doesn't necessarily equate to being the best cities, just their recommendation to visit 2016
