#SnapPerth 2016: Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard embracing the north

Troy Pickard reckons Perth’s north is the place to be – as you’d expect from someone who’s been the Mayor of Joondalup for the past 10 years.

Mr Pickard was first elected to the post in 2006, and growth in the northern corridor has been impressive since that time.

In May this year he declared Joondalup the “capital of the north” and said it was competing on a global stage.

But Mr Pickard is, first and foremost, a proud Western Australian, and he was happy to share a few of his favourite spots as part of our #SnapPerth 2016 campaign.

“Perth is home,” Mr Pickard said.

“It is where I met my wife and where we have seen our family grow.

“Like most residents in Joondalup, I love the wonderful lifestyle our City offers – a modern, relaxed and casual atmosphere with fantastic amenities.

“Joondalup is home to world class beaches along 17 kilometres of pristine coastline, as well as high quality natural environments and parkland areas.

“One of my favourite parts of the City would have to be Hillarys Boat Harbour, one of Perth’s most popular tourist attractions drawing in excess of 4.5 million visitors per year.

“Whether it’s enjoying time at the beach with the family, a nice meal at one of the many restaurants and cafes, or having a quiet drink whilst watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean, it is such a magnificent place at any time of the day and a jewel in the City’s crown.”
