About Perth

Including tips for the best time to visit Perth

Nature and urban life coexist in perfect harmony in Perth, the capital of Western Australia. This is where the Swan River flows into the southern Indian Ocean, passing skyscrapers, lively boardwalks, and beautiful parkland – all under a canopy of clear blue skies.

Kings Park—a huge, 1,000-acre greenspace—sits in the heart of the city, full of giant white trees, botanical gardens, and the State War Memorial that overlooks the rive named for its black swans. Across the river is Perth Zoo, home to more native animals like koalas, crocodiles, and kangaroos.

Perth’s main highlight is its surrounding natural beauty. From the flower-filled bushlands and the lush Swan Valley wine region to golden stretches like Cottesloe and Trigg Beaches, there are countless destinations for escaping the city's bustle.

Rottnest Island is right off the coast of Perth, a protected nature reserve with white-sand beaches, secluded coves, and wildlife like the quokka – a small, wallaby-like marsupial. The island is also popular with surfers who come to ride the waves in Strickland Bay. Spend a day or two taking the ferry from the port town of Fremantle, known for its Maritime Museum and 19th-century prison.

Back in Perth, you can find chic boutiques, galleries, pubs, and a large selection of laid-back restaurants in the Northbridge area.

Amazing, relaxing, so much to do! Easy access to everything, was able to walk everywhere from my hotel! Could always find a place to eat or drink that would accommodate both my partner and I perfectly!

Perth is a clean, neat and functional city. The transport system is a credit to those who operate it. Kings park is not to be missed and as it lies beside the beautiful Swan River it gives Perth a very special "feel" and setting.

We enjoyed walking around Kings Park and going to Rottnest Island. We also enjoyed driving down to Margaret River and checking out the many breweries. It was easy getting around Perth. We ate at many places around Perth including Little Creatures Breweries.

August 14, 2018

I grew up in Perth and left 10 years ago. I was surprised to see that the vevels of violence seemed to have DECREASED there AND there was so many more beautiful/interesting things to look at and also to watch on their many giant television screens. I also met many beautiful people. It was great! Wish I could've stayed longer than 4 days!
