Need a reason to visit Perth?

Perth has something to offer for every taste. It’s the only capital city in Australia where you can indulge in the beach lifestyle, enjoy a decent bushwalk, taste world-class wines and catch at least one sunset over the ocean – all within 30 minutes of the city centre. Whether you’re staying for a week or weekend, there are plenty of family-friendly activities on offer.

Check out the famous Cottesloe Beach, play a round at Joondalup Golf Course or shop local designers on King Street.

Rottnest Island, famous for its photogenic quokkas, a 40-minute boat-trip from Freemantle, is a car-free paradise with historic buildings and natural wonders to explore. Book a scenic cruise down the Swan River or a bus tour to Margaret River’s world-famous vineyards. Stargaze at the Pinnacles or meet the local fauna at Caversham Wildlife Park.
