Perth is situated on the banks of the Swan River on Australia’s West Coast.

Here are just some of the things to see and do while in Perth:


Rottnest Island

Rottnest Island sits just offshore from Perth. It is a protected nature reserve, with white sand beaches and secluded coves. Here you can enjoy some of Australia’s finest swimming spots, snorkel trails and surf breaks. It is also home to the world famous quokka, a small wallaby-like marsupial.


Kings Park

Kings Park is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner city parks. It is rich in Aboriginal and European history, contemporary culture and offers innovative design, displays and services. Kings Park has an international reputation for scientific research, leading horticulture, conservation and public education.

Elizabeth Quay features ultra-trendy new cafes, bars and restaurants for those looking to get the most out of their dining experience. There’s also a host of activities on offer at the Quay including cruises, gondola rides and sea plane rides.


The Bell Tower

The Bell Tower includes the twelve bells of St Martin in the Fields, which are recorded as being in existence from before the 14th century and recast in the 16th century by Queen Elizabeth I. They are one of the few sets of royal bells and are the only ones known to have left England.

Cottesloe Beach

Cottesloe Beach is by far the most popular beach in Perth. Cottesloe has clean white sand and beautiful clear turquoise water, but what makes it stand out from the crowd are the grassed terraces and park behind the beach, the tall shady Norfolk Island pine trees and lively atmosphere.
