Perth is a vibrant city
overlooking the Swan River - the weather is fantastic, the beaches uncrowded
and the dining options plentiful and varied. Shop in the trendy boutiques or
browse the art galleries in upmarket King Street, stroll through Kings Park
Botanical Gardens or take a tree top walk for a unique view of the city. There
is a free bus circling the city centre making it easy to visit the CBD
With an array of water sports on
the Swan River, more than 50 kilometres of riverside pathways ideal for walking
and cycling, a number of inner city parks and beautiful beaches only minutes
away it’s easy to see why Perth’s relaxed, outdoor lifestyle is addictive to
all who visit.
A short distance from Perth city
is Fremantle where you will find some of the best seafood restaurants,
stunningly different Australian fashions, the latest in indigenous art, a
pioneering history waiting to be retold, as well as an array of street
performers and weekend markets not to be missed. Or visit one of Perth’s
popular beaches. Favourites such as Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach boast
bustling cafés and children’s playgrounds while City Beach and Floreat Beach
are perfect for body boarding and fishing.
Just offshore from Perth is
Rottnest Island. A great place to getaway for a few days and relax or enjoy one
of the many activities like surfing, snorkelling or fishing. Hire a bicycle to
explore the island and spot a quokka, the cute native marsupials that call
Rottnest Island home.
