City of Light
A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain. This jewel in the crown of Western Australia boasts a friendly, cosmopolitan atmosphere and a relaxed, easygoing way of life. As a result of its geographical remoteness and isolation, Perth has something of a self-contained feel. Use our Australia online tour itinerary builder to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Perth.

Where to stay in Perth

When you choose your Perth accommodations, remember that this city stretches over a wide area, which can cause issues for visitors with limited time to sightsee. The best way to remain close to urban transportation is to stay in the central business district or neighboring Northbridge, where you'll also find the greatest selection of hotels. To avoid the center's big crowds and steep hotel prices, consider booking a room in the coastal town of Mandurah, easily accessible by Perth's reliable suburban railway system.

Message from Tourism Australia

Nature and urban life exist in harmony in Perth, on Australia's west coast. Here, where the locals soak up more sunny days than in any other Australian capital city, you can visit nearby Rottnest Island, walk in leafy Kings Park and tour Swan Valley vineyards. For local culture, wander the nearby city of Fremantle's winding portside streets and Perth city centre's museum and gallery precinct. International flights arrive directly into Perth Airport from many global transit hubs. From the airport it's an easy 35 minute taxi or coach ride to the city centre.
