Beaches, quokkas, and otherworldly wonders

Let’s start with one of Perth’s biggest draws – the beaches! 

When it comes to coastal beauty, Perth takes the crown. Imagine dipping your toes in crystal-clear waters and basking in the warm Australian sun. Cottesloe, Scarborough, and City Beach are the beach trifecta, each offering its own unique charm and very close to the city.

Whether you wanna catch some waves, build sandcastles, or simply relax on the golden sands, these beaches have got you covered. So grab your sunscreen and get ready for some serious beach bliss!

Next, prepare yourself for an encounter with the world’s happiest animal – the Quokka! 

Hop on a short ferry ride to Rottnest Island, and you’ll find yourself in the company of these adorable marsupials. Quokkas are famous for their photogenic nature and perpetually cheerful expressions. Snap a selfie with one of these furry critters, and you’re guaranteed to brighten up your Instagram feed. 

But that’s not all Rottnest Island has to offer. Explore the island’s hidden coves, pedal your way through scenic bike trails, and witness breathtaking lookout points that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.

For those seeking a unique natural spectacle, a visit to Nambung National Park is a must. Prepare to be awestruck by the otherworldly rock formations known as the Pinnacles. Rising majestically from the golden desert sands, these limestone spires create a surreal and hauntingly beautiful landscape. 

Take a leisurely drive through the park or join a guided tour to fully appreciate the magnificence of this natural wonder. As you wander amidst the Pinnacles, you’ll feel like you’re in a sci-fi movie set on another planet (hello, Dune fans) – a sight that will stay with you long after you’ve left Perth.

Wine, heritage, and art

Discover Western Australia’s oldest wine region, the Swan Valley, located just a short drive from Perth. This picturesque region is a perfect blend of vineyards, galleries, breweries, and local produce stalls. Here, you can taste over 180 years of winemaking history and choose from 150 different attractions along the way.

Unlike high-end wine regions, here you’ll find a down-to-earth, unpolished atmosphere – a result of many family-owned and operated businesses in the area. Even at the larger wineries in the area, you’ll find gin distillers carefully applying bottle labels, restaurant owners hand-picking fresh produce, and winemakers pouring tastings while tending to their barrels.

The Swan Valley caters to visitors of all ages. At Caversham Wildlife Park, located inside Whiteman Park, you can enjoy koala holding and kangaroo feeding, as well as vintage train rides and playgrounds. Explore The House of Honey to see live (contained) bees, indulge in delectable treats at Whistler’s Chocolate Company, and stock up on delicious nougat at Mondo Nougat Factory.

Back in the heart of Perth, you’ll find yourself transported to a bygone era in the nostalgic city centre. The city’s charming heritage buildings, quaint streets, and vibrant atmosphere will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a time capsule. Take a leisurely stroll through bustling laneways, discover hidden gems in cosy cafes and boutique shops, and immerse yourself in the rich cultural tapestry of the area. 

Don’t miss the chance to visit the iconic Perth Mint, where you can delve into the city’s gold mining history and even witness the mesmerising sight of molten gold being poured.

Perth is not only a haven for natural wonders but also a vibrant hub for art enthusiasts. Explore the captivating art trails of Perth, starting at Northbridge, and wander through the streets adorned with vibrant murals and street art. 

For a deeper dive into the city’s art scene, follow the Perth Cultural Centre art walk. This immersive experience takes you through the city’s cultural precinct, where you can admire contemporary artworks, visit galleries, and witness the pulsating creative energy of Perth.
