A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kayaking & Canoeing and Dolphin Quay. Venture out of the city with trips to Rockingham Beach (in Rockingham), Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle) and Waterskiing & Jetskiing (in Mandurah). On the 3rd (Fri), spend an enriching day with Explore Tours Perth. There's much more to do: stroll around Kings Park & Botanic Garden, get great views at Mount Brown Lookout, explore the activities along Swan River, and take in the views from Elizabeth Quay.

To find photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Perth online trip itinerary builder .

In May in Perth, expect temperatures between 25°C during the day and 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 10th (Fri): get great views at Padre White Lookout, then steep yourself in history at Princess Royal Fortress, then examine the collection at National Anzac Centre, and finally see the interesting displays at Western Australian Museum - Albany.
