Known for its endless sunshine and beautiful scenery, Perth is the perfect destination for a holiday. As Western Australia’s capital city, it is one of the most remote cities in the world, making it a true getaway where you can leave your worries behind.
Perth has 19 dazzling beaches to explore, each with pristine white sands, clear blue waters, and plenty of photo opportunities. If you are lucky enough to visit during spring, find time to take a wildflower walk and see how many of the 12,000 native species you can find. If you are a nature lover, you can also consider one of the many wildlife experiences available in the city. For the adrenaline junkies, you can soar to new heights with Treetops Adventure, or push your limits sky high with Skydive Australia.
If you want to enrich your visit to Perth with cultural experiences, the Perth Cultural Centre has everything you need. From heritage listed buildings to art galleries, from libraries to theatres, you will find a range of thought-provoking activities here. When you’re finished, head to Leederville, one of Perth’s best destinations for foodies.
If you want to dance the night away, Perth offers several themed experiences that will shake up your Saturday night. Toots, a hidden disco in Chinatown, Jazz Cellar, a retro speakeasy, or join a session at OUTdance, Perth’s LGBTQIA+ dance class that has been running for over twenty years. Lessons are held each week, and the group also hosts regular social dances throughout the year. You can also head to The Court – Perth’s inclusive venue – for a night of DJs and drag shows.
