Things to do

Whether you’ve got a week or a few nights to explore Perth and the surrounding areas – there’s a range of trip ideas waiting to be experienced.

Unwind and rest with a day at some of the most popular beaches from Cottesloe Beach and Fish Hook Bay to Little Salmon Beach or Scarborough Beach to name a few. Their crystal clear waters are ideal to swim, surf, snorkel or paddleboard – the choice is yours.

Nature lovers can enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities; from exploring some of the amazing walking tracks in Kings Park, or the Cape to Cape Track stretching from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwn in the south-west, through to whale watching cruises between June and December. Margret River is also a hotspot for wildflowers - be on the lookout for the splendid spider orchid and giant donkey orchid, which are celebrated finds among botanical enthusiasts.

Take a day trip to Fremantle to soak in the slower pace and boho vibe or uncover Western Australia’s top visited Rottnest Island, home to some of the finest beaches and bays in the world. Don’t miss seeing a quokka – Rotto’s most well-known animal which can be found sleeping under shady bushes.

More about Fremantle Markets Freemantle markets

Fremantle

30 minutes drive from Perth's CBD 'Freo' as it's known by the locals, has a working harbour, colonial architecture and an artsy ambience.

It's one of the best places from which to catch a ferry to laid back Rottnest Island, with its enchanting bays, clear blue waters and local wildlife.

Take your pick of things to explore from funky fashion, microbreweries or crafted wines, seriously fresh produce and be entertained by performers and more than a few eccentrics.

Visit from Friday to Sunday to check out the local Freo Markets for fresh food, souvenirs and local crafts.

Then as night closes in,  choose from an array of bars and restaurants, sit back with a cocktail and a taste of the delicious local produce, and take in the spectacular sunsets day after day.
