Wander Around Kings Park

Overlooking the city and Swan River, Kings Park is arguably the best urban sanctuary in Perth. Hotels can be easily found near to this site that is home to walking trails, picnic areas, botanical gardens and more. Highlights include the Federation Walkway, a sky bridge set amidst eucalyptus trees!

Shopping in the City Centre

Those looking to get in some shopping can head to the city centre, walking distance from properties such as Pan Pacific Perth. Popular amongst shopaholics are the Murray and Hay street malls, which are pedestrian malls where you will find a range of shops as well as the David Jones and Myer and department stores.

Explore the Swan River

The Swan River is a key part of Perth’s cityscape and offers plenty of relaxation and recreation. There are special paths by the riverbank for walking and cycling, while you can also embark on a Swan River cruise to gain a different perspective of Perth. Thrill-seekers can try jetboat rides and parasailing too!

Spend time at Cottesloe Beach

No trip to Perth is complete without spending time in the sand and surf and Cottesloe Beach is well worth visiting. You can spend time just lazing in the sun, or enjoy surfing, swimming and snorkelling too. There are some grassy areas to have picnics and come evening, you will be treated to a magical sunset.
