We've included these beaches for you: Cottesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach. Museum-lovers will appreciate Fremantle Prison and Adam Monk Photography Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Perth: Fremantle (Fremantle Markets, Western Australian Maritime Museum, & more), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Mandurah) and Red Umbrella Art Gallery (in South Fremantle). Pack the 6th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Adventure World Perth Australia. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Caversham Wildlife Park, stroll around Kings Park & Botanic Garden, explore the world behind art at The Sacred India Gallery, and meet the residents at Perth Zoo.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Mon): shop like a local with JahRoc Galleries, stop by Margaret River Chocolate Company, look for all kinds of wild species at Sunflowers Animal Farm, then stroll through Hamelin Bay, and finally enjoy the sea views from Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the exciting artwork at The Studio Gallery, explore the fascinating underground world of Ngilgi Cave, then kick back and relax at Meelup Beach, and finally view the masterpieces at Christian Fletcher Gallery.
