A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Get out of town with these interesting Perth side-trips: Fremantle (Fremantle Markets, The Shipwreck Galleries, & more), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Mandurah) and Penguin Island (in Rockingham). Dedicate the 20th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. On the 28th (Sat), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Swan River, identify plant and animal life at Caversham Wildlife Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Perth Zoo, and enjoy the sand and surf at Scarborough Beach.
