A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Get out of town with these interesting Perth side-trips: Caversham Wildlife Park (in Whiteman), Fremantle (Fremantle Markets, Fremantle Prison, & more) and Tyler's Vineyard (in Millendon). Dedicate the 6th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Perth Zoo, and explore the activities along Swan River.
