Perth

Perth ©
A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Thu): enjoy the sand and surf at Rockingham Beach and then admire the natural beauty at Kings Park & Botanic Garden. Here are some ideas for day two: get great views at Fraser Avenue Lookout, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mary's Cathedral, then steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, and finally explore the activities along Swan River.

Plan my trip to Perth with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Perth is an approximately 20-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from London to Perth. When traveling from London in May, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Perth: temperatures range from 25°C by day to 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Yallingup.
