With weather as welcoming as its friendly locals, Australia’s sunniest capital city of Perth offers adventures for everyone. Framed by the Swan River (Derbarl Yerrigan), the city boasts 19 pristine beaches, each blessed with dreamy Indian Ocean sunsets, and is home to one of the world’s largest inner-city parks.
Perth is home to the Swan Valley, the only wine region within an Australian capital city — just one of the effortless day trips to enjoy within an hour of the city. You can also explore Perth’s historic and bohemian port city of Fremantle (Walyalup), swim with playful wild dolphins in Rockingham, or cruise to Rottnest Island (Wadjemup) to meet plenty of quokkas, the world’s happiest animal.
Add a thriving metropolis of curated cultural experiences, luxury hotels, shopping precincts, rooftop bars and waterfront dining at Elizabeth Quay on the beautiful Swan River, and it’s easy to see why Perth is such a relaxed and naturally adventurous capital city.
