A fantastically laid back city, despite being Australia’s fourth-largest, Perth is perfect for those looking for a cosmopolitan atmosphere with plenty of options for rest and relaxation. Centred around the Swan River, there’s pristine parkland, the nearby bush, and ocean beaches to explore. The city itself is blossoming, thanks to the Western Australian mining boom, with those benefiting from the spoils spending their hard earned in the city’s abundance of cool cafes, chic restaurants, bars and cultural hubs. Whether you want to get active and soak up that glorious sunshine, or shop ‘til you drop, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied in Perth.
Things to Do in Perth
There aren’t many cities that also offer up some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so while you’re here, make the most of them. Lying just to the west of the city, the easiest to reach is Scarborough Beach, with Cottesloe – Perth’s most famous beach, lies just beyond. For a taste of what’s hip, with cool music venues, markets and vintage stores, head for the trendy suburb of Leederville. If you want to get cultural, check out the area’s history at the Western Australian Museum, while families will love Perth Zoo and the Aquarium of Western Australia too. For a little escape from the hustle and bustle, try a stroll or a picnic in one of Perth’s beautiful inner city parks: Kings Park, Bold Park, or Lake Monga.

Driving Around Perth
With Perth Airport just 9km (about 15 minutes drive) away, whether you choose to rent a car at the airport or in the city, the city centre is within easy reach. Perth is the ideal place for car rental, with its major freeways and highways being, unusually for Australia, completely free of tolls. It leaves you free to explore the city’s nearby unspoilt national parks, unpopulated coastline and other interesting locations, such as the neighbouring port city of Fremantle. Wine-lovers can make the most of the Swan Valley’s renowned wineries and micro-breweries with a driving wine tasting tour too.
