    A quiet and relaxing park in a silent neighbourhood. An excellent place to spend some time reading or just having a nap in the grass. Weddings are celebrated there from time to time.  more »

    Great park frequented by city workers and friendly local homeless alike. The scenery is beautiful and well maintained, tread carefully near the water during duck season lest you want to take home a few small "presents" from the local fauna on the bottom of your left shoe.

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.
