You really can ‘Expect the Best in the West’ when you visit Perth.
From soft, white sandy beaches and scenic parks through to a thriving metropolis of funky bars, modern restaurants and curated street art, Perth packs
a punch that cannot be denied.
If it’s beaches you’re after, visit Cottesloe Beach, with its cafés and Norfolk pines or Mettams Pool for its snorkelling reef. Or perhaps you’d prefer to explore Kings Park. One of the biggest city parks in the world (bigger than New York’s Central Park), Kings Park offers epic views of the Swan and Canning rivers, as well as the skyscrapers perched on their banks.
There’s also plenty of amazing day trips within a stone’s throw from Perth. Just 19km from Perth, Rottnest Island has more than 60 beaches, coral reefs and history-packed buildings. Alternatively, the Swan Valley is home to 40 vineyards, many with cellar doors offering tastings of the region’s warm-climate wines.
Perth really does offer a little bit for everything, whether you're into food, exploring urban landscapes or taking in nature, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Perth also offers something unique in that it is arguably the world's most isolated capital city. With desert stretching out behind it, and untouched nature stretching up the coast on either side of it, it has developed its own culture and way of life that is a little bit less hectic than what happens in the East.
