A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Attractions like Caversham Wildlife Park and Cottesloe Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Perth's surroundings by going to Fremantle (The Fremantle Round House & Fremantle Prison), Penguin Island (in Rockingham) and Mandurah Cruises (in Mandurah). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, contemplate the long history of The Perth Mint, kick back and relax at Scarborough Beach, and make a trip to Elizabeth Quay.
