Perth, the capital of Western Australia, sits where the Swan River meets the southwest coast. Sandy beaches line its suburbs, and the huge, riverside Kings Park and Botanic Garden on Mount Eliza offer sweeping views of the city. The Perth Cultural Centre houses the state ballet and opera companies, and occupies its own central precinct, including a theatre, library and the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Embrace the best of both worlds in Perth, where soft-sand beaches and scenic parks meet a thriving metropolis of small bars, creative restaurants and curated street art.

Top five things to do in Perth

1. Check out the Fremantle Markets


First opened in 1897 when visitors would arrive by horse and cart, Fremantle markets are now open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday for locals and business travelers alike. Boasting an eclectic atmosphere with over 100 years of vibrant culture and heritage, the markets now have over 150 stalls of fresh and local produce, handcrafted souvenirs, clothing, delicious meals and unique street artists to make this a fun day out for all.

2. Pack a picnic for Kings Park


King’s Park is one of the world’s largest inner-city parks with over 400 hectares of protected bushland and 3000 species of native flora and fauna. After a stroll through the Botanical Gardens, enjoy a pre-packed picnic or grab a bite to eat at one of few cafes and enjoy the sweeping views across the Swan river, the City skyline and the Darling Ranges.

3. Take a Quokka selfie on Rottnest Island


Just a short 30 minute ferry ride away from Perth is the beautiful Rottnest Island. Find locals and tourists snorkeling in the turquoise waters, exploring a network of walking and cycling trails, having a beach day at one of the 63 white sandy beaches, all whilst being surrounded by adorable quokkas roaming the island – what more could you ask for?

Did you know: Quokkas are known for their smile and playfulness, which has landed them the title of the ‘happiest animal in the world.’

4. Explore the Swan Valley wine region


Swan Valley is the oldest wine region in Western Australia, with over 40 world-class wineries and numerous breweries, cideries, distilleries and restaurants. Perth locals commonly sip and sample their way through different cellar doors in the region, which you can either self-drive or better yet attend an organised tour so you can indulge in the products yourself. 

5. Witness one of Perth's renowned sunsets


One of the best perks about living in Perth is its stunning coastline with crystal clear water and gleaming white sand. Grab a towel and join the locals at one of Perth’s many beaches and stay on to observe a memorable sunset over the Indian Ocean. We recommend checking out one of Perth’s favourites - Cottesloe or Scarborough beach.
