Perth and surrounds
Perth is the capital of Western Australia, Australia’s largest state. It sits where the Swan River meets the southwest coast. Sandy beaches line its suburbs, and the huge, riverside Kings Park and Botanic Garden on Mount Eliza offer sweeping views of the city. Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city with loads to do: it’s very much an outdoor city because it has amazing weather and lots of thriving small bars and restaurants and some fabulous curated street art. From Perth you can visit nearby Rottnest Island or wander Freemantle’s meandering portside streets, or discover laneway bars in Northbridge.
