Things to do

Cott in a moment

Explore 400ha Kings Park in the city or the inviting clear waters and spectacular sunsets at Cottesloe Beach. ‘Cott’ is perfect for swimming, snorkelling, surfing and taking in ocean sunsets. Get to Cott by car, bus or train. Make the 15-minute drive from the city or hop on a Transperth bus or on the Fremantle train line, where the beach is a lovely 600m walk from Cottesloe station.

Isle of right

Rottnest Island is famed for its tranquil waters and secluded bays and it’s super easy to reach: it's just 19km from the city centre. Catch a ferry from Perth, Fremantle or Hillarys and when you get there, hire a bike and take your time discovering the island. Chill out over lunch and take in the spectacular ocean views, then stick around in the afternoon to enjoy the beautiful crystal bays. Rottnest is the perfect place for swimming, snorkelling, fishing or just relaxing.

Live it up

If you crave the best food, wine, arts and culture and good nightlife, head to Northbridge. Just a five-minute walk from the Perth CBD, it’s known for its vast array of bars, clubs, incredible places to eat and cool places to shop. Visit the Art Gallery Of Western Australia and WA Museum Perth, and the WA Opera and WA Ballet. Indulge in al fresco dining: choose from Thai, Indian, Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Italian, Vietnamese, Japanese food and more.

Roll into Rock

Head 47km farther down the coast and you’ll hit Rockingham. It’s home to an incredibly vast array of marine life, including wild dolphins. Go a little farther and Mandurah is next. After just an hour's drive (or you can take the train) you'll be beachside. Mandurah is on the shores of Mandjar Bay. Once a small fishing village, it's now a modern seaside hub complete with boardwalk cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. It's also the home of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, where you get your art fix and enjoy the views of the cityscape.


The valley road

Just 20 minutes east of Perth and a world away from the city's buzz is Swan Valley and Darling Range. It’s WA’s oldest wine region – learn about local heritage and unwind. Reach the area by road or take the scenic route aboard a Swan River cruise from Perth's Barrack Street Jetty. Winery-hop via horse-drawn wagon or chauffeured classic car. Enjoy fine food at one or more of the 70 restaurants and cafes here or pack a picnic lunch. Families are urged to head to Caversham Wildlife Park, home to one of Western Australia's largest collections of native Australian wildlife, including koalas, wombats and kangaroos.
