Perth - something to offer for every taste

Perth delivers the best of both worlds, with beaches and beautiful parks adjoining a thriving metropolis of funky bars, a thriving arts scene and curated street art. This capital city logs more sunny days than any other in Australia. There are over 1600 hotel rooms within walking distance of the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, meaning that you can take advantage of conference rates that suit any budget.

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.
