Whether you are an adventure seeker, have a young family, are here in Perth on business, prefer a quiet pace, are a young couple or retired, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets in Perth and surrounding areas. Beautiful national parks for walking and cycling, the best beaches and weather in the world, stunning islands, world class food and wine, unique wildlife, shopping, nightlife, theatre and culture; there’s much to choose from.
Attractions and Activities offers a general selection of things to see and do within the general Perth Metropolitan Area, however to make it easier you have the option to view them under three main location categories – Perth, Fremantle and Greater Perth, (outside of the city).
Relax with a picnic and enjoy the views in one of our most visited attractions, Kings Park. Swim with dolphins, or during September to December you can get up close and personal to the majestic migrating whales or whale sharks with a number of whale watching cruises. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of our national parks and go bush walking up in the Perth Hills, take a day tour up to the famous Pinnacles, pat some friendly kangaroos at Caversham Wildlife Park, watch some gold pouring at The Perth Mint and visit the world’s smallest penguins at Penguin Island.
Spend a few days in historic Fremantle; full of colour with busy restaurants, cafes and bars trading all hours of the day and night. Browse through heritage markets, bookstores and museums. Enjoy fresh fish and chips at the Fishing Boat Harbour or pizza and pasta along the Cappuccino Strip. Sample free tastings of chocolate, honey, coffee and wine in the Swan Valley, or cruise up the Swan River while tasting our world class wines. Browse the antique and homeware stores in Guildford, or horse ride, cycle, play golf or walk the historic walk trails.
