A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dolphin & Whale Watching and St. Mary's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Perth side-trips: Mandurah (Dolphin Quay & Waterskiing & Jetskiing) and Rockingham Beach (in Rockingham). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Patrick's Basilica, make a trip to Monument Hill War Memorial, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.
