A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Shop till you drop at Red Dirt Photographic and Glen Cowans' Studio at the Roundhouse. Popular historic sites such as Fremantle Prison and Whalers tunnel are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Caversham Wildlife Park in Whiteman (about 32 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Cottesloe Beach, admire the masterpieces at Art Gallery of Western Australia, steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, and explore the activities along Swan River.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Perth trip maker site .

Margaret River

A low-rise, laid-back town of approximately 4,500 inhabitants, Margaret River serves as an ideal local base to explore the surrounding wine region.

Step out of Margaret River with an excursion to Dolphin & Whale Watching in Busselton--about 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, learn about winemaking at Brookwood Estate, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and let little ones run wild at Margaret River Rotary Park.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Margaret River trip planner .
