Perth CBD is where to go to do some shopping or museum hopping. One of the tourist highlights in the CBD is the Swan Bell Tower, it gets mixed reviews but it’s still the number one sight to see. It can also be great to stroll along the Swan River shore or take a ferry ride on the water, the days in Perth can pass in a blurry, chilled vibe, and the locals won’t deny it!
We can not miss visiting Perth’s beaches but it’s very hard to narrow it down it to just one beach to recommend, so we’ll list a couple. Perth does the best job of combining a city lifestyle with its easy to reach beaches, all of which are good for almost all water sports including surfing, swimming, nude bathing, you name it. Cottestloe is one of the local’s favorite beaches and a top spot for a sunday session with friends or family. Other favorite beaches are the Floreat Sorrento, City beach and Scarborough
The highlights of Kings Park are in the Botanic Gardens, it can be easily accessed from the city. The garden has plants from all over Western Australia and attracts lots of animals and birds. One favorite activity in Kings Park is the Tree Top Walk along the Lotterywest Federation Walkway as you can see great views of the trees that surround you, and have a glimpse of the Swan River and the Old Swan River Brewery below it. The grassy picnic are on Fraser Avenue offers a great place to relax and sit-back to see the views over Swan River and the CBD.
Hilary’s Boat Harbour
Hilary’s Boat Harbour is not a waterpark, it’s a real marina where people are actually allowed to swim, play and kayak with real beaches to relax on. There happens to be a small amusement park with kiddie rides and games along side too so it promises fun for the whole family. This harbour also has lots and lots of dining and shopping options. When the evening kicks in it it has bars and night clubs all in line for you, so that drunken walk needs only needs to make it a few metres until the next round!
