Perth

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Appreciate the collections at The Nostalgia Box Museum and Art Gallery of Western Australia. Step out of the city life by going to Cottesloe Beach and Caversham Wildlife Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Perth: Fremantle (The Fremantle Round House, Fremantle Prison, & more) and Mandurah Cruises (in Mandurah). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Patrick's Basilica, make a trip to The Bell Tower, and appreciate the history behind Kings Park War Memorial.

Plan my Perth trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Margaret River to Perth in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of bus and train. In March, daytime highs in Perth are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to travel to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
