Perth is Australia’s only capital city where you can enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset within just 30 minutes of the city. It’s also the sunniest state capital, averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and boasting a string of 19 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches.

Top things to do in and around Perth

  1. Explore Kings Park & Botanic Garden

It’s Australia’s largest inner city park and the green heart of the CBD. With over 400 hectares of unique bushland, tranquil parkland and botanic garden, it’s no surprise it is the most popular visitor destination in Western Australia.

  1. Discover the port city of Fremantle

Fremantle or ‘Freo’ as it is affectionately known by the locals, is known for its maritime, convict and colonial history. These days however, it is a bustling cultural hub teeming with cafes, shops, pubs and markets.

  1. Relax on Rottnest Island

It’s an idyllic island playground just a short ferry ride from the mainland and a world away from city life. For such a tiny island, this car-free and carefree place packs a lot of pleasure into a day. Look out for the friendly Quokkas, a marsupial unique to WA who can regularly be seen around the island.

  1. Swan Valley

Explore Western Australia’s oldest wine region, located just 20 minutes from the city. Many of the vineyards are still owned by descendants of early European settlers, who might just share some of their story over a fruity red at their cellar door.
