About Perth

If you're looking for some cultural inspiration, Australia's fourth-largest city, Perth is where you will find it. This tourist-friendly city that draws over 3.5 million visitors a year offers 24-hour attractions of live culture, art, and entertainment. There are marine parks, botanical gardens, wine regions, and gorgeous beaches to make it even better.

 

Take a ride around the city on a boat, or walk and cycle through its iconic pedestrian malls. Dine at an elegant restaurant overlooking the river. Drink at a small bar. Even if it's just coffee. Perth is truly a metropolitan of different tastes. And it's right there waiting for you.

 

Pack your bags and get there. NOW.

  • Carry food, water, and spare petrol with you especially during cross-desert road trips as Australia is a vast country. Finding shops in the desert will be difficult.
  • Plan your budget in advance. Australia is a little expensive.
  • Beware of kangaroos while driving on country roads. They like jumping in front of vehicles.
  • Make sure to buy travel insurance that covers unforeseen events such as travel delays, medical emergencies, and lost luggage.
  • Aussies are considered very friendly people. Talk to them.
  • Remember, Australian dollars is not the same as US dollars.
  • Swim in-between the flags for a safe bath on the beach due to strong water currents, high waves, and crocodiles.
  • Take public transit. It is clean, frequent, and inexpensive.
  • Be prepared to self-serve yourself in most of the restaurants.
  • Australia is in close proximity to Antarctica’s ‘ozone hole.’ Protect yourself from severe levels of ozone radiation by covering up and applying generous amounts of sunscreen.

Night Life

Perhaps Perth has the highest "life" per square inch in all of the southern hemisphere. Take any number of steps from anywhere and you'll end up at a pub or a dance club or a wine bar or a music-and-lights show. As bars go, we recommend Northbridge and Fremantle. From these rooftop bars, you'll have direct access to the city's incomparable skyline. And for live entertainment, visit an amphitheater. There's people, music, and lights all over.

Must See

  • Kings Park, considered to be even bigger than New York’s Central Park. From here, you'll have a panoramic view of the city's skyline.
  • Remember to take a walk along the fresh gardens and white-trunked trees of the Swan and Canning rivers.
  • Perth's beaches bring white sands and turquoise rivers in a manner you don't see anywhere else.
  • Get a taste of Perth’s profound culture at the Perth Cultural Centre.
  • Watch kangaroos grazing and hopping around at Heirisson Island located in the middle of the Swan River.
  • Head to Northbridge in Central Perth to experience an eclectic mix of cafes, restaurants, and nightlife.
 

Experiences

  • Visit Rottnest Island to look at coral reef, tropical fish, and the "happiest animal in the world," the Quokka. Get a selfie with it if you can.
  • Unwind at Cottesloe Beach, located in the Western suburbs.
  • Go just about anywhere for snorkeling, diving, and surfing.
  • Go wine-tasting at the Leeuwin Estate Winery in Margaret River District.
  • Spend a few nights at Monkey Mia in Western Australia’s Shark Bay to look at wild dolphins.

Best time to visit

The best months to visit Perth are September, October, and November when it is spring in the southern hemisphere. Remember, however, that the warm season is also Jellyfish season. So you won't be able to swim in the ocean.

Moderate time to visit

March-May is fall in Perth. It is perfect for outdoor and beach activities. June-August, on the other hand, is wet and cold.

Worst time to visit

December-February marks the height of summer in the southern hemisphere. It is vacation season for the locals, which might make finding hotels and resorts difficult. As well, the hot weather attracts all kinds of pests like flies and mosquitoes.
