Perth Travel Guide (WA, 6000)

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia and one of the most beautiful cities in Australia.

The weather is fantastic, the beaches are clean and uncrowded, and the city, situated on the banks of the Swan River, is in a postcard-perfect setting.

Free buses get you around the CBD where you can visit the Perth Mint, Bell Tower, Museum and art galleries. And there’s a train and bus station right in the centre of town, as well as plenty of accommodation in the form of hotels and hostels.

If you’re after some serious retail therapy – make a beeline for up-market King Street. Packed with boutiques, art galleries, eateries and beautiful people, it’s the place to be seen. For quality department and fashion chain stores, the Murray Street and Hay Street malls hit the spot.

Northbridge, Mount Lawley, Leederville and Subiaco have buzzing nightlife, or try Cottesloe or Scarborough for a more laid-back surfie vibe.

Jump on a ferry to South Perth to take that world-famous snap of Perth’s skyline. Lined with well-kept lawns, palm trees and riverfront cafes, it’s a nice spot to relax over lunch. At night, it’s especially spectacular when the city’s glittering skyline is reflected in the Swan River.Source: ATDWPERTH DIRECTORY:Adventure:Perth Diving AcademyAttractions:Gallery of Fine ArtEntertainment:Rosemount HotelFestivals & events:Kings Park Botanic Gardens Wildflower Festival (September)Information:Streets of PerthHeritage buildings:Central Government OfficesGovernment HouseGuildford HotelHer Majesty's TheatreRose & Crown HotelSt Georges CathedralWoodbridgeRecreation:Carramar Golf CourseTransport:Norfolk JetPerth International AirportQantasSky West AirlinesVirgin Blue
