Welcome to Perth, Western Australia
Western Australia is one of the largest States in the world, and its capital city Perth receives more sunshine than any other capital in Australia. The wonderful weather and natural surrounds of the beautiful Swan River, Kings Park and Botanic Garden, and the Indian Ocean entice the relaxed and easy-going lifestyle the city has become known for.
In the vibrant CBD, wine and dine in Perth’s restaurants and bars, shop for luxury and local labels, explore charming city laneways, or take in the culture and arts scene. Perth’s inner city precincts such as Mount Lawley, Leederville and Subiaco also offer plenty of unique delights.
Visitors to Perth can explore a world-class wine region, picnic in one of Australia’s oldest conservation areas, or watch the sun set over the ocean – all within 30 minutes of the city. Soak up the sun at one of the 19 city beaches, cruise down the Swan River, head to the Swan Valley, or take a ferry to Perth’s own island paradise, Rottnest.
Explore Western Australia
For an extended stay, Perth is also the gateway to some extraordinary and unique West Australian experiences. The landscape is inspiring in its beauty and grandeur, from pristine coastal beaches to the red dirt of the outback, rugged gorges, unique rock formations and secluded waterfalls.
Tall tree forests, beautiful beaches, luxury accommodation, and world-class food and wine regions, including the Margaret River region, lay in the South West - an easily accessible three-hour drive south from Perth offering the perfect weekend indulgence.
A journey inland east of the city takes visitors to the Golden Outback - a region of historic townships, spectacular desert wilderness, outback characters, gold rush history and the spectacular beaches of the Southern Ocean.
North of Perth, the Indian Ocean bordering the Coral Coast region is a myriad of marine life - humpback whales, dolphins, turtles, dugongs and colourful tropical fish. The world’s largest fringing reef, and one of the most bio diverse, is located here – the world heritage listed Ningaloo Reef.
And for an Aussie frontier adventure, the North West of the State encompassing the wild Kimberley region is a vast wilderness area, with epic landscapes of red rock, white beaches, waterfalls and gorges, and a rich Indigenous culture and history.
Whether it’s an outback adventure, relaxing by the beach, a gourmet tour of fine food and wine, an action packed schedule of water sports and thrill seeking, or shopping the cosmopolitan streets of the city, Western Australia is an extraordinary holiday destination.
