This fabulous city lies on the Swan River between the green hills of the Darling Range and the sparkling blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Perth and its suburbs are graced with an abundance of natural and man-made attractions; these together with the Mediterranean-like climate make this a popular destination for tourists.
Perth enjoys more hours of sunshine than any other capital city in Australia. Its warm climate and beautiful beaches ensure it is an increasingly popular destination with tourists.
There is good shopping available, plenty of waterside restaurants and cafes, a 24 hour world class casino, international quality golf courses, over 80 kilometres (50 miles) of white sandy beaches and a huge range of outdoor activities and experiences to enjoy.
Perth is an ideal base from which you can explore the diverse surrounding attractions. Only minutes away, you can visit wineries offering fine wines and sumptuous lunches, swim with wild dolphins in their natural environment, holiday on an island and explore the colourful port city of Fremantle.
Fremantle, the seaport of Perth and home of the 1987 Americas Cup yacht race, is always a hive of activity. From colourful street entertainment and maritime activities, to the well-preserved heritage buildings and much more. It is an excellent day trip destination.
