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.
Explore Perth's surroundings by going to Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle), Mandurah (Mandurah War Memorial & Dolphin & Whale Watching) and The Links Kennedy Bay (in Port Kennedy). Dedicate the 25th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, contemplate the waterfront views at Swan River, take in the views from Matagarup Bridge, and pause for some serene contemplation at Wesley Church Fremantle.

Western Australia travel guide

Western Australia's almost 12,000 km (7,450 mi) of coastline is broken up only by oasis-like towns and cities. Most of the state, however, is an arid region of mostly uninhabited, infertile land with an untamed physical aesthetic. The harsh climate cultivates a laid-back lifestyle centered on the coast’s shaded enclaves and picturesque beaches. Australia’s largest state, with an area of 2.65 million sq km (1 million sq mi), Western Australia contains over a third of the country’s landmass but just 11 percent of its population.
