Extraordinary WA Taxi Ride: First Cab off the Rank

The epic journey for taxi driver, Doug Slater through the sights of Western Australia is about to begin. This Friday, Mr Slater will collect his first two passengers from the heart of Perth city and head south on the inaugural leg of the Extraordinary Taxi Ride.

Designed to showcase Western Australia to the world, this road trip in a taxi will take nine weeks; cover thousands of kilometres and hundreds of hours of travel in the picturesque State.

Twenty two passengers from around the world were chosen to explore every corner of the state and experience the extraordinary. The journey begins with couple, Dayna Jaeschke and Jeremy Soulsby taking in the vines, forests and beaches of the South West. Subsequent passengers will head north as far as the rugged Kimberley.

The very first stop on their journey south, is the famous Miami Bakehouse, a Western Australian tourist icon. The Miami Bakehouse has been taking care of travellers for many years and will be showing Mr Slater and his passengers their famous hospitality when they arrive in Mandurah on Friday morning.

David Palmer, co-owner of Miami Bakehouse explained that the Miami team is very excited to be part of this great WA adventure.

“Being chosen as the first stop from hundreds of potential locations is a real honour. We’ve won more than 350 awards for our baking and we have always been a must-stop on the traveller’s itinerary.

“We will be treating our guests to a range of our award winning treats. They can choose anything they fancy from our famous gourmet pie selection.

“It could be our Garlic Prawn pie, a Crab and Feta pie or something more traditional like our gold medal Classic Steak,” said Mr Palmer.

The first leg of the journey leaves Perth at 9am and is scheduled to arrive at The Miami Bakehouse on the waterfront, Mandurah Foreshore at 11am
