I’ve been raving about how much we loved our six-month trip through Western Australia and that anyone visiting Aus needs to head west and not just stick to the east coast of Oz.

And that goes for Perth too, the capital city of WA. Although it’s a relatively young city, it continues to evolve and there are so many things to do in Perth.

Things to Do in Perth, Western Australia

Whether you’re passing through for a few days or looking for a city to take a city break in, there are so many attractions in Perth to keep you busy for at least 2-3 days.

See the Skyline from Kings Park and Botanic Garden

Kings Park has a stunning location overlooking the Swan River and offers sweeping views of the Perth city skyline.

Catch a Sunset at Cottesloe Beach

Perth’s sunsets are legendary. If you haven’t seen the sun set over the ocean, Western Australia is where it’s at.

Take a Walking Tour of Perth

It’s flat, has wide streets and footpaths, and one of the best ways to start a visit to any new destination is with a walking tour to get your bearings and insider tips from a knowledgeable local.

Take a Swan River Cruise

You’ll enjoy spectacular views of the city skyline, the many sailing boats, and marvel at some of the most expensive real estate in the country – the mining boom has treated Perth well.

Take a Day trip to Rottnest Island

Rottnest Island is incredible. Located 18 kilometres off the coast it’s a premier island getaway with over 60 picturesque beaches and bays.
