A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Perth Zoo and Cottesloe Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Perth: Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Mandurah). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, appreciate the history behind State War Memorial, explore the activities along Swan River, and contemplate the long history of The Bell Tower.
