Perth Vacation Travel Guide

A modern city, Perth is the gem of Australia’s west coast and the capital of Western Australia. This friendly metropolis boasts pristine beaches, clear water, and plenty of coastline – not to mention an abundance of nature and mineral resources.

Start your day of Perth sightseeing with a walk through Kings Park, which is larger than New York’s Central Park and home to the Western Australia Botanic Garden. More than 3,000 species of Western Australia’s plant life, including vibrant flowers, are on display here. Most of the park consists of bushland, which means lots of wildlife and quite a few walking trails.

After a morning of reflection in the park, head over to the Swan Bell Tower to enjoy a spectacular view of the city. Don’t forget your camera! You will notice the diverse nature of Perth’s architecture from this vantage point, including the modern glass structures and London-inspired Tudor buildings.

Perth tours are never complete without a ferry ride to Rottnest Island, affectionately called “Rotto” by the locals. This getaway is rife with opportunities to snorkel in the Indian Ocean, see wildlife such as seals and birds, and travel across more than 31 miles of cycle ways on a rented bicycle.

Once your feet are back on mainland Western Australia, visit one of the jewels, and ultimately what draws much of the Perth tourism: Swan Valley. This region has a landscape peppered with vineyards, no surprise given that growing grapes has been a long-standing tradition in Swan Valley. Following a short (or leisurely paced) day trip to Swan Valley, return to Perth and head to Hillarys Boat Harbour for a sunset dinner.

I'd like to visit Perth. It gave us Heath Ledger, Tame Impala, Troye Sivan, etc. It's even known to be the sunniest capital city in Australia. Plus, it has a lot of South Africans. It's just really sad that a lot of people don't know what or where this city is.

No mention of Freo? Fremantle is the best part of Perth, imo, though really a separate city that was swallowed by the Perth metro.

Six-year-old video, Perth has progressed so much since this video was made. Population now over 2 million but still not overcrowded.

Perth is great , I know I live here but ask the people living in the doorways and top floors of multi level car parks ask the Aboriginal people in the parks and the people in the welfare suburbs . Yes great if you have plenty of money.
