Perth's superb position on the banks of the Swan River and nearby hectares of natural bushland in Kings Park, one of the largest inner-city parks in the world, make for a city centred on the great outdoors and perfect for sightseeing. A new cosmopolitan perspective and economic growth has given Perth a cultural confidence which is making its mark on the city skyline and on other aspects of urban life. Perth City is the perfect base from which to explore surrounding destinations and regions with many tour operators departing from the CBD, a wide range of accommodation to choose from and plenty of attractions and activities for all types of travellers.
Fremantle is a classic example of mixing the old with the new to create a unique and edgy city that’s as proud of its artistic cultivation as it is of its maritime and colonial past. With its combination of world-class attractions, microbreweries, waterside seafood eateries, heritage pubs, cafés, buzzing markets and boutique shopping, there is something for everyone to enjoy when you visit Fremantle.
Stretching from the blue waters of the coast to the rugged terrain of the Darling Scarp, Mandurah and Rockingham offer a natural adventure playground.

Perth's Beaches stretch along the glorious Sunset Coast coastline of metropolitan Perth. The evening sun dipping spectacularly into the Indian Ocean gives this region its evocative name, and it's a sight you can enjoy daily from any number of picturesque locations.
Further inland, the Perth Beaches region presents many fascinating opportunities to experience natural Australian environments close to the city. You'll find walk and cycle trails through native bushland where kangaroos and wild birds watch you go by and there's also one of Australia's finest golf courses here, regularly visited by the local wildlife.
