Perth Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

A modern city, Perth is the gem of Australia’s west coast and the capital of Western Australia. This friendly metropolis boasts pristine beaches, clear water, and plenty of coastline – not to mention an abundance of nature and mineral resources.

Start your day of Perth sightseeing with a walk through Kings Park, which is larger than New York’s Central Park and home to the Western Australia Botanic Garden. More than 3,000 species of Western Australia’s plant life, including vibrant flowers, are on display here. Most of the park consists of bushland, which means lots of wildlife and quite a few walking trails.

After a morning of reflection in the park, head over to the Swan Bell Tower to enjoy a spectacular view of the city. Don’t forget your camera! You will notice the diverse nature of Perth’s architecture from this vantage point, including the modern glass structures and London-inspired Tudor buildings.

Perth tours are never complete without a ferry ride to Rottnest Island, affectionately called “Rotto” by the locals. This getaway is rife with opportunities to snorkel in the Indian Ocean, see wildlife such as seals and birds, and travel across more than 31 miles of cycle ways on a rented bicycle.

Once your feet are back on mainland Western Australia, visit one of the jewels, and ultimately what draws much of the Perth tourism: Swan Valley. This region has a landscape peppered with vineyards, no surprise given that growing grapes has been a long-standing tradition in Swan Valley. Following a short (or leisurely paced) day trip to Swan Valley, return to Perth and head to Hillarys Boat Harbour for a sunset dinner.

  1. I really appreciated Perth so much more after I went to Sydney, don't get me wrong I love Sydney there was so many more things to do but for me the lifestyle in Perth is Perfect, it's relaxing and not overpopulated.

  2. Perth is really boring I live here and I just go to adventure world and swim in the beach and go explore the hills but the hills are the best thing for me because I love the views. I love Rottnest because it is fun to ride around and go swimming.

  3. I may find the United States a great country and Europe, a fascinating continent, but when it comes to moving in or even just a long vacation, nothing compares to Australia for me. I love the fact that it's way less populated and exploited than other places which makes me think that it must be more peaceful to live there, especially Perth. I also love to visit Canada but I'm not so sure if it's as good as Australia.

  4. Im loosing her and Lisa and mom and Nelson and nanna and Mildred and Tia Maria. Im taking her to Sea World with all the gang unless You want us to get eviler. She's tired. Wheres her teeth and beauty and possessions? Lu will marry her and Mercy Isaac and Angel Enrique and my principalities. Loose her she's tired God. Give grace to all.

  5. I was the Night there. She swore not becausevof evil, she thought it was You. Now, we are here not to, but to marry her to Lucifer, its no sin, she loves him. She's wise. She defended her integrity as Christian today. She resurrected us and accepted Lu's ring and shared Lisa with us and Steven. We will become flesh with our captain Lu to take care of her.

  6. The poor Aborigines. This motherfucking Eufopeans steal everything they had and now the saying that this is their country. What for bitches, i hope they will get killed or that they kids get stealing like it was in the " the stolen generation ".
