Perth, Jewel of Western Australia

To experience Perth, Western Australia is to indulge the perfect ingredients for a memorable holiday. Plan your next trip to Perth with Expedia and enjoy the best beaches, exciting nightlife, busy markets, astonishing inner city parks, calming outdoor dining and remarkable marine adventures.

Perth, capital of Western Australia can be found beside the widest expanse of the beautiful, winding Swan River. Perth withholds the best views of all from Kings Park and the Botanic Garden, which is even bigger than New York City’s Central Park. With its 988-plus acres of shaped gardens and natural greenery, there are so many paths to enjoy this wonderful park. Take a stroll on the treetop walk, experience an Indigenous cultural tour, or pack a picnic among the gum trees and aesthetically pleasing wildflowers in colorful blooms.

For action on the water, the boundless list of water-based fun includes exciting adventures like boating, fishing and surfing. Infinite beaches stretch from Perth’s famous Cottesloe Beach up the coast towards Lancelin—Western Australia’s ultimate windsurfing and sand boarding center. Or you can drive south to Rockingham and Mandurah for dolphin watching, beach picnicking and exceptional crabbing. The sophisticated inland channels intertwining this area are seamless for anyone who loves to play about on the river.

One of the best things about traveling is to experience new foods in social atmospheres. There are many pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants that are merely feet away from beaches and Swan River. For instance, the Merrywell Pub features mouthwatering foods such as Mac & Cheese Balls, Fish Tacos and Lollipop Buffalo Wings. Yum!

Perth, Western Australia is a place that offers so much; it might even call for a few trips back to experience them all. The friendliness of the people, the beauty of its scenery, and the exciting flavors all work together to make Perth the vacation of a lifetime!
