Perth may be the most isolated capital in the world but it combines heritage with an urban world-class city and a side of beautiful beaches.
Us locals are pretty parochial, and we love that this city flies a little under the radar, but it really does have it all! From art galleries to al-fresco dining, a laid-back lifestyle, epic parks, events and top wineries, a trip to Perth is bound to be unforgettable.
Basking in more sunlight hours than any other major Australian city, Perth has the beaches to match. With Rottnest Island just off the coast, home to the friendly Quokkas and the largest inner-city park in the world, Kings Park there is plenty to explore.
