City Guide to Perth

Why Perth?

PerthStunningly beautiful and clean beaches, and fantastic weather - Perth represents much of what is best about Australia. It's a great place to visit - not least because it’s a great place to get up close and personal with many of Australia's cutest (and oddest) animals. Make sure you get yourself up to Perth Zoo at some point during your stay to make friends with a kangaroo or feed a koala. The city is close to the Indian Ocean, and has a relaxed and cosmopolitan feel that will keep you on just the right side of chilled.
