Perth is a vibrant, energetic city that offers a truly unique Australian experience. This 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 - all within just 30 minutes of the city. It is also the sunniest state capital, averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and boasting a string of 20 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches, from iconic Cottesloe to the surf hotspot of Scarborough.
Stay for a few days and explore the areas around Perth. Head south to the port city of Fremantle, where the fascinating maritime histories blends with an eclectic multicultural energy or take a ferry ride to Rottnest Island, a city escape for swimming, snorkelling, fishing and relaxing. Venture inland to the Swan Valley, Western Australia’s oldest wine growing region. Discover the rich fusion of award-winning wineries, fine food, amazing art and lively events set against stunning scenery, just out of the CBD.
