Here, in Australia’s sunniest capital city, Perth’s spectacular natural surroundings are rivalled only by its vibrant city life. Dine on fresh local produce at a newly opened restaurant or bar, picnic in one of Australia’s oldest conservation areas, explore a world-class wine region, or watch the sun set over the ocean - all within 30 minutes from the city.
Nestled between the sparkling Swan River and one of the world’s largest inner city parks - Kings Park and Botanic Garden – Perth is flourishing.
New bars, restaurants, shopping and cultural spaces are popping up in all corners of the city and its neighbouring precincts of Northbridge, Leederville, Mount Lawley and Subiaco.
If you love the ocean, there are 19 beaches in the Perth metro area, including the perfect white sands of Cottesloe Beach.
Head to the historic port city of Fremantle and soak up its ‘boho’ charm and café culture.
In WA’s oldest wine region, the Swan Valley, you’ll find award winning wines and fresh local produce. A little further afield, you can swim with the wild dolphins of Rockingham or explore the aquatic playground of Rottnest Island.
Complementing Perth’s city and natural attractions is an impressive calendar of events.
