Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Get to know Perth in a whole new way, exploring the picturesque eastern foreshore of the Swan River and discover Perth’s hidden gems off the usual tourist route! Our journey takes us along the eastern foreshore of Perth’s pristine Swan River through an urban wetland, a haven for native birds on the urban fringe of the CBD.  Keep an eye out for dolphins and Western Australia’s iconic black swans. Just off the foreshore route is the small inlet Claisebrook Cove, one of Perth’s hidden gems.  A hub of riverside cafes, bars and elegant homes, you could be forgiven for imagining yourself in a quaint European village. As we meander back through East Perth to the city, our route passes some of the city’s most beautiful heritage buildings including the famous Perth Mint, historic Government House and the lush Supreme Court Gardens.

Plenty of things to do in Perth appeal to visitors regardless of age, taste, and budget. To mingle with locals and feel like one, enjoy a picnic on the riverbanks of Swan River, or boat, fish, kayak, and swim in the clean water. Nature enthusiasts like exploring the spectacular landscape of Western Australian bushland at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, as well as watching migratory birds at Matilda Bay Reserve. Supreme Court Gardens offer a balanced mixture of nature, heritage, and art. If you want to add a bit of history and culture to your Perth vacation, learn about the 19th-century gold rush in Western Australia at The Perth Mint or visit St Mary's Cathedral.

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.
