  • There is a small and nice artificial lake and river. Good for relaxing
  • Beautiful Gardens. My Niece got married there and it was perfect for a wedding
  • 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.
  • Great place to go for a walk or hang out during lunch time.
  • Beautiful gardens often used for weddings and photo opportunities. Little cafe across the road with nice coffee.

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.
