About Perth

Western Australia’s bustling capital city, Perth is a long way from any other metropolitan hub. A six-hour flight from Sydney and eight hours from Kuala Lumpur or Jakarta, it’s a fascinating gateway to Australia’s many wonders — and a brilliant destination in its own right. On the banks of the Swan River, between the Darling Ranges and the Indian Ocean, this lively cultural hub is also a favourite with outdoorsy travellers. Perth’s accommodation options are wide-ranging, with everything from charming B&Bs to slick city hotels, fit for a range of tastes and budgets. Check out our list of the best places to stay in Perth as you start planning your trip.

Explore Perth’s historic centre on foot, admiring colonial-era architecture and strolling through scenic King’s Park. The bounty of the vineyards of Margaret River, to the south, will delight wine aficionados, especially when paired with innovative cuisine at Perth’s hip eateries. Sample excellent fresh produce at the weekend markets of Subiaco and Fremantle, both of which are great fun.

Perth’s beaches are a huge hit with locals and visitors alike. Hone your surf skills at Cottesloe, stroll along the white sands of Scarborough, and join Perth’s trendy younger crowd at Brighton and Trigg. Beyond the beaches, you’ll find the Kalamunda and John Forrest National Parks, perfect for hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, horse riding and wildlife-spotting. The dramatic Nambung National Park, where the otherworldly Pinnacles rise from the desert, is the region’s most iconic landscape. Unwind at one of the best places to stay in Perth after big days of adventure.
