A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Step off the beaten path and head to Rockingham Beach and Binningup Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fremantle Prison and St. Mary's Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Perth: Harvey River Estate (in Harvey), Mullaloo Beach (in Mullaloo) and The Fremantle Round House (in Fremantle). There's lots more to do: stroll through City Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Trigg Beach, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and identify plant and animal life at Matilda Bay Reserve.

Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Visit Martindale Hall Heritage Museum and St George's Anglican Church for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gorge Wildlife Park and Henley Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Adelaide side-trips: St Aloysius Church (in Sevenhill), Clare (Sevenhill Cellars & Crabtree Watervale Wines) and National Motor Museum (in Birdwood). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aldinga Beach, don't miss a visit to Smith Brothers Walking Trail, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Glenelg Beach.
