Perth

Urban CBD

Perth is Western Australia’s capital city where you can enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset within just 30 minutes of the city. It’s also the sunniest state capital, averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and boasting a string of 19 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches, from iconic Cottesloe to the surf hotspot of Scarborough.

Regular flights to Perth depart from overseas, all state capitals and many regional locations, landing just 20 minutes from the central business district. For more exciting ways to get there, how about a ride on the legendary Indian Pacific rail, an epic road trip across the Nullarbor, or a summer cruise of the coast?

Situated beside the Swan River, Perth is a living postcard, with the best views of all from Kings Park and Botanic Garden – one of the biggest inner-city parks in the world. Larger than New York’s Central Park, there are so many ways to enjoy its 400-plus hectares of sculpted gardens and natural bushland. Stroll the treetop walk, take an Indigenous cultural tour, picnic among the gum trees and in Spring, see the wildflowers in bloom.

Another city icon is the Swan Bells, which fill the air with sounds from one of the largest musical instruments on Earth. From there, you can hop on the free bus to museums, art galleries and the Perth Mint – home to the largest coin in the world weighing one tonne of pure gold.

There’s also plenty of retail therapy on offer. The high-end fashion boutiques of King Street make it the place to be seen. The Murray and Hay Street malls are where you’ll find big brands, or for some eclectic vibes, head to Northbridge, Mount Lawley, Leederville, Subiaco or Victoria Park.

Take a lazy lunch by the river or beach and enjoy fresh fusion flavours of Perth’s many cafes, restaurants and new small bars.

Jump on a ferry to South Perth to take in that sensational skyline and Elizabeth Quay. It’s spectacular at night, when glittering lights are reflected on the river.
