With its distinctive entrance, the course is an important part of the city’s landscape and culture. Stop by for one of many special events held here throughout the year, or visit the site’s award-winning restaurants and bars, which offer sweeping views of the racetrack with the Swan River in the background.

  • passing through only after my HBF fun run but the park was like every other park. I didn't notice anything worth remarkable
  • This was a great place for a gig. I don't know what the trots are like.

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.
