A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Take a break from the city and head to Caversham Wildlife Park and Cottesloe Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fremantle Prison and The Fremantle Round House. Venture out of the city with trips to Talijancich Wines (in Herne Hill), Millendon (Tyler's Vineyard, Olive Farm Wines, & more) and Bells Rapids Park (in Brigadoon). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, admire the masterpieces at The Sacred India Gallery, explore the activities along Swan River, and pause for some photo ops at The Bell Tower.
