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.

What other travelers say about Perth


Stunning, uncrowded beaches.

March 21, 2020

Stunning, uncrowded beaches. A good variety of things to do - nature, wine, sights - although some, such as the Pinnacles are some way out of the city so a car is pretty much a must, but definitely worth a visit. Caversham Park is a great day out - our 2nd visit, but still very enjoyable and excellent for kids as they can interact with some of the animals and it's also really good value. We were disappointed with Penguin Island as there is little or no chance of seeing any penguins in the wild as they sleep through the day and the island closes before they get active - this should be made clear in their information, but isn't. ( The similar experience in Melbourne is far better. )We also felt it was expensive for what it offers.

Perth is a great place to visit. Active, friendly, everyone who lives there seems to really want to be there. Kings Park is for everyone. Fremantle is a must for architecture and lively life. Rottnest Island is a great day trip.

Perth has wonderful beaches, shops, parks and easy access to the bush. It is modern, clean and has excellent public transport which I have used for many years. Kings Park has stunning flora displays. Traffic on the many motorways can get hectic at times. People are very pleasant. Perth has grown into a medium size city and with that normally comes crime, but the sensible traveller will be safe - just heed local advice when you go.

Too many meth zombies nearby the hotel (not the hotels fault!

Too many meth zombies nearby the hotel (not the hotels fault! Just Perf Fings) the esplanade used to be a nice sunset/sunrise spot, didn't feel safe. The Grosvenor pub is a lovely and safe Sundowner venue 10/10. The Novotel on Langley is perfect for a central location for those wantings shops or casino

Great place plenty to do and see. Loads of good places to eat and have a drink. Easy access on the free city buses and plenty of boats trips on the Swan River. Plenty of open green spaces and parks. Very friendly people.
