Perth

Australia’s sunniest capital offers a vibrant, yet easy-going and natural lifestyle surrounded by the beautiful Swan River, Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and the Indian Ocean. 

Perth city and its surrounding urban villages of Mount Lawley, Leederville, Northbridge, Victoria Park and Subiaco are brimming with dining, shopping and entertainment options. New bars and restaurants are opening frequently, laneways are being re-born, and shopping precincts are being expanded and refreshed. Culturally, visitors can indulge at Perth’s Cultural Centre in Northbridge - home to the Art Gallery of WA, the WA Museum, State Library, the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, the Blue Room and the State Theatre Centre of WA. 

Explore Kings Park and Botanic Garden. At 400 hectares, Kings Park is one of the world’s largest inner-city parks – the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Easily accessible from the central business district with superb views of the city skyline, the Darling Ranges and the Swan and Canning Rivers, Kings Park is rich in Aboriginal and European history and has more than 3,000 species of WA’s unique flora. Visitors can dine at one of the restaurants or cafes, pack a picnic, take a walking tour with an Indigenous guide, check out local artwork at Aspects, walk across the Federation Walkway, marvel at the 750-year old boab tree and Kimberley Garden, and in season, watch a movie under the stars at the outdoor cinema. 

There are plenty of destinations within an hour of Perth’s central business district. Take a short ferry ride to the aquamarine waters and pristine beaches of Rottnest Island; tantalise your tastebuds in the Swan Valley (WA’s oldest wine growing region, celebrating 180 years of wine-making in 2014); enjoy the historic sights of York; swim with the dolphins at Rockingham; explore the seaside city of Mandurah; or explore the cafes and galleries of the historic and eclectic port city of Fremantle.

Watch the sunset over one of Perth’s amazing beaches. Home to 19 pristine metropolitan beaches, it’s easy to find your own slice of white sand to relax and enjoy one WA’s famous sunsets. While surfers head to Scarborough and Trigg for the waves, swimmers looking for calmer waters cool off at Cottesloe or one of the more sheltered northern beaches such as Mettam’s Pool between Sorrento Beach and Trigg.
