A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
You'll get in some beach time at Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach. Get outdoors at Caversham Wildlife Park and Bells Rapids Park. Get out of town with these interesting Perth side-trips: Talijancich Wines (in Herne Hill) and Tyler's Vineyard (in Millendon). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, explore the activities along Swan River, and steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint.

To see more things to do, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Perth trip planner.
