Experience the Extraordinary in Perth

The city’s spectacular natural surroundings are rivalled only by its vibrant city life. From the sapphire blue ocean, porcelain white sand beaches, coastal sunsets and panoramic views from Kings Park, to the unique historic port city of Fremantle, world-class wines and abundance of new hotels, bars, restaurants and public spaces, Perth boasts a relaxed outdoor lifestyle with plenty of things to see and do, all within a short distance of the city centre.

From fine dining to trendy new establishments and beachside cafes, Perth enjoys a thriving restaurant and bar scene that takes advantage of the abundant fresh produce.

Want to enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset all within 30 minutes of a city? That’s just another day in WA when you come to Perth and explore the surrounding attractions such as Rottnest Island where the friendliest marsupial, the quokka, can be found.
