A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fremantle Prison and St Patrick's Basilica. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Art Gallery of Western Australia. Change things up with these side-trips from Perth: The Fremantle Round House (in Fremantle) and Rockingham Beach (in Rockingham). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Aviation Heritage Museum.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Perth tour planning tool .

Stavanger, Norway to Perth is an approximately 26-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight.
